Fixers Danny Bowman - ITV News Tyne Tees - Dysmorphia Fix

Worrying about how you look is a passing thought for many people, but for Fixer Danny Bowman, it became an all-consuming obsession.

 

The 18-year-old from Alnwick, who used to spend hours in front of a mirror, developed body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) in his mid-teens.

 

He now wants to raise awareness about the mental condition so others can seek help.

 

His story was broadcast on ITV News Tyne Tees on Friday 8th November.

 

Danny says there were days where he’d spend huge amounts of time on his appearance, because he was frightened to go out in public.
