Im semi obsessive about my body and constantly worried about my under developed muscle. Could you take a look at my body and tell me honestly if i look ok*as in normal* or not. I want to know what you guys think.

I had to remove this link as it was to another forum which is not allowed under rule #4

manic depressive there's an illness known as body dysmorphic disorder which is the obsession with aspects of your body,self image,appearance - and how it controls peoples lifes. I know quite a lot about this illness.
I had to edit due to rule #4 (you can read the rules by clicking on Forum rules in the box titled Forum Links on the right of your screen in the cream box).

No problems Manic  :-) Images are allowed in conjunction with rule #2 but unfortunately it also took me to another chat/message board forum which is against rule #4 - no promoting online forums.

I guess. But if it goes to the extent of taking over a major part of your life then it could be bdd, but i don't mean to frighten you into thinking you have something like that,i thought it was just best you were aware it existed :-)
