Gym Fundraiser, BDD Podcast and our Conference 


The Gym, Stoke-On-Trent are helping to Fundraise for the BDD Foundation

They are holding a body confidence month which will involve a range of different sponsored events such as a 6 Hour Spinathon, a Yoga weekend and various other different gym floor activities.

Their aim is to get as many people involved as possible so that they can raise awareness of the condition but also raise funds for us so that we can do more to support individuals who have BDD.

A couple of their members have opened up about having suffered with BDD and they will be talking at some of the sponsored events about how they overcome the disorder & their ongoing recovery process.

Dr Paul Polyvios talks with Minnie Iris about her personal story of Body Dysmorphic Disorder.

Minnie is a remarkable lady who not only knows the effects BDD can have first-hand but facilitates BDD support groups to help other sufferers. 

We get to hear, in her own words, her story with BDD starting from experiencing racism in her childhood, to cosmetic surgery in her late teens and suicidal thoughts through to finally getting diagnosed at the age of 44 and then her recovery journey.

She discusses how her CBT therapy worked and what some of her exposure challenges looked and felt like.  Very significantly she talks about the ups and downs of recovery and that relapses are a normal part of this.
