I was reading a story about the link between “Selfies”, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), “Body Dysmorphic Disorder” (BDD), “Self Depreciation”, “Narcissism” and “Suicide”. I’ve been wondering what is the deal with people’s obsession with “Selfies”. It seemed like a mental illness was developing and I just couldn’t name it. It is a very dangerous condition called “Body Dysmorphic Disorder” that ends up with a very high suicide rate, as well as self mutilation. It is actually linked to a birth serotonin disorder or developed serotonin disorder. It is primarily linked through technology, aka smartphones and etc.
I simply knew there had to be some connection. It is not normal to be self obsessed in pictures of yourself simply to obsess and self depreciate yourself on either minor flaws or non existant. This happens across all ages and both sexes. This is a growing illness that is not only leading to suicide, but also murder.
Since many of you have children who are greatly involved in social media and their “Selfies”. This is an illness, that can be treatable and suicides and murder prevented, if you look for the signs. Not just in your children, but those around you as well.
