RACHEAL BAUGHAN, 27, from Crawley in Sussex, is an entrepreneur who runs her own modelling agency. She has written a book, The Butterfly Girl, about her body-image problems. She says: Although it is embarrassing letting people know what I see in the mirror, at least it helps to explain what I deal with on a daily basis.

Racheal Baughan suffered from the illness BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder), a powerful and destructive condition that causes you to see a completely distorted reflection of yourself—the person in front of the mirror might be extremely good looking, but their state of mind dictates that they see a flawed and deformed image. Despite a loving and caring family, Racheal developed acute anxieties about her appearance and in her early teens took to wearing excessive make-up which, for her, acted like a mask. Then at 13 she experienced a life-shattering tragedy. Slipping into a deep depression, Racheal began to spend hours alone and became increasingly distressed about the distorted reflection of her face. She began to inhale aerosols, self-harm, and eventually developed anorexia and bulimia. Desperate to find out the cause of her daughter's problem, her mother encouraged her to participate in a television discussion show. An expert on the show was the one to identify Racheal's condition as BDD and for Racheal this was to be the turning point of her life. Racheal is now a strong, happy, and confident young woman and although a recovery from severe BDD may never be complete, Racheal has truly moved on with her life.

I loved this book and couldn't put it down. It was so honest and interesting read about a young girl with BDD (Body Dismorphic Disorder. Hopefully one day BDD will be more well known so people can be more understanding about how debilitating it is. After reading of the pageants Racheal went on to do, I had to see for myself what she really looks like. She is absolutely stunning. A gorgeous girl, it really puts into perspective how this illness warps the mind into thinking that they aren't good looking, when in Racheal's case, she's gorgeous. I think everyone suffers from a mild case of not loving their body, but BDD is so much more then just disliking the way you look. It's viscous and debilitating. A constant nagging in your head, trying to prevent one from living a normal life without worrying about appearance. The depression, anxiety, OCD thoughts and eating disorders associated with BDD is enough to make one want to hide away for life. Thank god Rachael started to trust in her mum and boyfriends judgement and push aside the BDD controlling her life. What an inspiring story and such a brave beautiful person. Thank you Racheal for telling your story. All the best for the future. While I know BDD and all mental illnesses aren't 'curable' today, I hope one day they are. Until then, hang on and be the strong person you know you are.

While I have struggled with BDD since age 11. Dianosed at age 12, there was time I would stick giant bandages on my face because I was so ashamed of my face. while racheal wore a veil, something i never did I would often wear makeup so heavy it was ridiculous or a surgical mask. What caused it? Bullying. I was Re-reading the book this week, I realised past abuse, from home, a boy freind or peers when we where younger are the root of such serious issues. Bullying issues where so bad, the kids at school held my head in a sink shoved me into walls, I guess i can relate to having such serious matters like glass broken in her face. Racheal had mentioned doing an artical and the news paper was titled The ugly Disease and she was compleatly mortified. 5 Years ago i intervied for a huge magizine and they put on the front cover "i was to ugly to leave the house", though i was happy to raise awareness on my issues I was compleaty mortified and had a huge panic attack.

Hope all is well. I find it very confusing how any one as gorgeus as Racheal could hate the way she looks. and recovering from image disoder and abuse is difficult.

ps: I emailed theolib about what my concerns where, hopefully it was resolved..
