i thought i had seen it all...
Last night before i started reading my book,Bless me Ultima, i decided to see what the Oprah Show was about. I'm not really an Oprah fan but lets be honest the woman does have interesting and fun shows at times. Yesterday's show was about BDD, Body Disfigurement Disorder, and let me tell you that i just did not understand it. I found this disorder to be particularly disturbing and unbelievable. A beautiful woman and a gorgeous man claiming to be "monstrouse." Seriously, these two individuals don't like to go out in public because they believe they are hideous. They claim that the disorder has ruined their lives because they are so preoccupied in hiding themselves to the world. I didn't understand it but it's real. Oprah claimed that Michael Jackson might have this disorders, hence all the plastic surgery. It's not vanity, someone claimed, they just don't feel pretty so they keep looking in the mirror to keep perfecting themselves. It takes them 5 hours to get ready, the lady had to be escorted to school by mom at times because she was so afraid of people looking at her. This is woman whom i believe to be gorgeous!! i was so baffled and tired that i just turned the t.v. off and went to bed to read. I know i should have kept watching to learn more about it considering the population i work for but i was not in the mood....i have my own body image issues :-(
