Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is a disease in which the sufferer is preoccupied with a distorted sense of self-image and is often afflicted with depression, addiction, and eating disorders, affecting as much as 2 percent of the population. Some sufferers even take their own lives. While society rarely associates this illness with both sexes, studies have shown that men and women are affected by BDD nearly equally.
In Shattered Image, Brian Cuban – lawyer, activist, talk show host and younger brother of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban – fights the shame that hinders so many BDD patients from speaking publicly and candidly opens up about his 30-plus year struggle with the disorder.
Through a series of anecdotes about Cuban’s lifelong nightmare battling the slowly-developing stages of BDD from early childhood to mature adulthood, discussing everything from schoolyard bullying to rejection in adolescence to near-death experiences later in life, Shattered Image addresses the following:

 

  • The “down and dirty” of BDD – rituals and obsessive-compulsive   tics” that preoccupied Cuban’s mind daily and occasionally still invade it, which are common to sufferers of the disease
  • The destructive side of BDD – addiction, eating disorders, depression and suicidal thoughts
  • The steps Cuban took to crawl out of the abyss of BDD, all of which changed obsessive and destructive thought processes through acceptance and repetition of positive behaviors
