If you experience it; does your Eating Disorder get worse during PMDD? is that part of the "dysmorphic"? I get obsessive about my weight right before my period starts.

      Not diagnosed with an ED, but my OCD gets way worse so it would make sense

      Thank you. We aren’t alone that’s for sure. Let me know how the outfits and pictures go and if it helps.

      Jewels18 - I'm so sad to hear you deal with this too; but I'm glad to know we aren't alone in this! That's a really good idea about the outfit and pictures! I'm going to try something similar and maybe it will reprogram my reaction during my lows. ❤️ I hope things get better for you 💕

      Wow I feel so less alone. Yes my dysmorphia is terrible during my PMDD spells. I will body check a lot and some days really cut down what I eat. What I have found to help is 1. Wear outfits that week that make u feel like a queen. 2. During the days its bad, I go back and look at the best pictures of myself and remind myself that the girl in that picture is the same girl here. I then remind myself why I thought I looked good that image. It’s a small thing and sometimes it helps.

      Raichu, thank you! (Also love the name 😁) I'll definitely be looking into Dim; i get really paranoid too and really easily angry and I'm never like that outside of the time of month

      Yes, I get super paranoid and have horrible body dysmorphia… I’ve started to take a supplement called Dim this past year… game changer. I have a very noticeable difference when I don’t take it versus when I do. I would talk to your physician or naturopath before starting it because it does level out estrogens, but it’s readily available and affordable.

      I’m not diagnosed with any eating disorder But that makes sense for me as I criticize myself these days much more
