    I think I have BDD.

    sometimes when I'm sat in class all I can think about is breathing in so I don't look fat & sticking my neck out so I don't have a double chin. sometimes I'll move my jaw to uncomfortable angles just so I don't look fat. I'll sit pouting to make my lips look bigger and raise my eyebrows slightly to make my eyes look wide. I must look weird.

    it's affecting the way I socialise, I'm convincing myself other people don't want to be around me because of the way I look. if anyone compliments me I instantly distrust them. I used to take selfies but I took them down because they didn't look like me. I used to have tinder but I deleted it because I felt like I was lying to everyone on there.

    I'm 18 but nobody has ever been attracted to me.

    I don't know how to cope with this feeling.

    surround yourself with people who will embrace beauty within you instead of criticising for your every action.Self confident is required to sustain happy life.But if you are sure having chubby chicks wouldn't help you to be confident,then, suggestion would be you can loose up your weight .I know this might sound stupid instead of encouraging you i am suggesting you to change..well thats not true i am saying you to improve yourself. mental healtg and physical health is extremely required to boost confidence. so if you are not mentally well its impossible to lead happy life.And in order to have good mental health its important to think positively.and if you get that confidence from loosing weight ,than why not try to loose?common its gonna bring best version out of you.
