Dysmorphia, the illness that Kim Kardashian suffers from
It was Kim herself who found out the situation she suffers from. It is called dysmorphia and consists of an excessive obsession with certain aspects of your physique. These, on certain occasions, can become imaginary, which aggravates the situation. The continuous changes that the body of Kim Kardashian has suffered from have led to more than one anxiety attack that has been reflected in her interaction with the rest of the people as well as in her work. The celebrity that lives practically of her physicist questions the way in which the public looks for the minimum detail to criticize it.
1. Kim had already made some slight comment about this situation.
In 2016, she was not what she is right now and there was all the talk of the positivity everywhere. Back the, she said: "I am empowered by my body, I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me. And I hope that through this platform I have been given, I can encourage the same empowerment for girls and women all over the world."
2. Over time, certain changes have been noticed.
Claire Mysko, CEO of the National Eating Disorders Association, says: "Compliments on weight loss can be and are often problematic, We hear from many people—in fact most people who have struggled with eating disorders—have cited experiences where they have lost weight and been complimented, and this serves as fuel for their eating disorder. It’s tough in a culture where weight loss is lauded and there’s an assumption that weight loss is always a good thing."
3. The issue of not getting pregnant with her last child raised some doubts.
She talked about not being able to carry her third child saying: "Doctors said that it wasn’t safe for my, or the baby’s, health to carry my own. Having a gestational carrier is definitely different, but anyone who says or thinks it’s the easy way out is completely wrong. People assume it’s better because you don’t have to deal with the physical changes, pain or complications with delivery, but for me it was so hard to not carry my own child, especially after I carried North and Saint."
4. It was said that her body could not endure another pregnancy.
She talked about her surrogate saying: "We have a great relationship with her and trusted her completely throughout the entire process. I’m so grateful for modern technology and that this is even possible. It’s not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I’ve ever had. Our gestational carrier gave us the greatest gift one could give. The connection with our baby came instantly and it’s as if she was with us the whole time."
5. Would it be that her obsession went beyond?
When talking about her weight loss, she said: "I’ve lost 20 pounds and I’m really proud of that, I was almost 140 forever and now I’m like 116 and it just feels good ... I didn’t see results right away, but when you stick with something and you’re consistent, you will. So, I love it.I work out about an hour-and-a-half every single day, heavyweights. I don’t do a lot of cardio. But honestly, like even my mom pulled me aside maybe a week ago and pulls me in a closet and is like, ‘What are you doing?’ She says, ‘I don’t care what, I just need to know.’"
6. The obsession with the body can lead to depression.
Claire Mysko continued talking about eating disorder saying: "Another piece of this that’s concerning is the fact that the term 'anorexic' and the reference to anorexia [is used in a positive way], It’s a serious, life-threatening illness. It has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric diagnosis, so to frame it in the context of a compliment is really quite concerning. If you have any tendency toward eating disorders, seeing a number of, 'this is how much I weigh,' it triggers an idea that, 'Well, this is what this person has, so I’m going to try to get lower than that,' or, 'I'm not that sick because I’m not there."
7. Although she is very active with pictures on social platforms.
Kim talked about social media in one of her interviews saying: "I fell in love with social media. I truly believe my blog wouldn’t be here today without social media. I’ve learned so much from my little sisters by looking at their Tumblrs and Instagrams. I know it sounds crazy, but I know them so much better through social media. When I was in crazy relationships, if I had Twitter, that would have been the best stalking device ever."
8. A small defect becomes a whole world for Kim.
Commenting on her bu**, she said: "I'm seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15lbs skinnier (before I had my baby) comparing to me now! I still have weight to lose. Anyone who has had a baby knows how hard it is to lose weight(especially the last bit of weight) & your body totally changes! Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now shame on you. I'm not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry! Not me. And BTW I've lost a lot so far & I'm proud of that! Don't give young girls a complex!"
9. It is clear that living by and for your physique can become very stressful.
Kim even uploaded a video talking about how she has lost so much weight saying "when I take out my hair extensions, I am less.." A source told In Touch: "The fact that she even pointed that out, is yet more proof that her weight issues have taken a troubling turn. Kim’s obsession is all-consuming. It’s all she can think about. She laughed at being called anorexic, but some fear that’s what’s happening."
10. She tried to do a lot of sport and eat healthy.
When talking about her new diet, she said: "I'm going to start a really crazy diet. I was looking on Instagram and this body builder popped up on my page and she had gained 70 pounds in her pregnancy. Her kid's like 6 now. She is like ripped. Melissa is a trainer I found. She's super inspiring to me and I really want to meet up with her and she if she could train me. She could help direct my food and really get me on an amazing path ... If I was 10 percent like her it would be life-changing. Like my whole arms and back. It's mostly food. I gotta have this lifestyle. I gotta try."
11. When she saw the paparazzi photos of her cellulitis, this condition worsened.
The pictures that were taken by the paparazzi made Kim pretty sad as the reality star even cried over her cellulitis and said that this is not the way she looked! Well, what can we say!? Ok, Kim! If you want to believe so! Cool! Here is what she said when she was a guest on The View: "I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip to Mexico and people were Photoshopping them and sharpening them. And then the worst photo — I definitely wasn’t in the best shape."
12. She could not bear to look like that anymore.
She continued: "I hadn’t worked out in I think 12 weeks. I had two surgeries on my uterus — we documented that on the show — but I was already not feeling like myself. Then when people were sharpening them and making them look way worse, I was like, ‘OK. I’m going to get it together,’ and I started working out with this bodybuilder girl I found actually on social media, so that’s a positive thing. In just a few weeks, [I’ve seen] my body tightening up. I’ve literally shrunk and come into place. I’m excited. We’re doing these intense workouts. I love working out."
13. She felt that in some aspect she had failed.
On the show, she said: "I'm already having this anxiety attack over security, and I'm already just, like, on high alert and now paparazzi's found us, it's like just the scrutiny that we get all the time, we try to avoid that. I'm doing all the steps to try to be as private and discreet as possible and then you take pictures. And if they're not, like, perfect people just, like, body-shame you. [...] For people to just think that's OK is so frustrating."
14. Since then changes in her appearance have been noticed.
The source talked about how even Kanye is not satisfied with what is happening to Kim’s body: "He’s always gone for the more curvaceous look and used to see Kim’s body as a work of art, but now he thinks she looks like a million other girls in LA, He’s told Kim to stop losing weight and has even accused her of putting more energy into changing her figure than their marriage."
Wow! So seems like the rumors about marriage troubles are true after all!
15. What will be her next obsession?
The source continued: "She’s putting out a dangerous message to her millions of followers. Her taking that ‘anorexic’ comment as a compliment was beyond improper. But she doesn’t care that she’s being irresponsible because, as usual, Kim’s only thinking about herself."
Truth to be told, we did not think of this drastic change as something so worrying but now that we have read the comments of the experts, this does seem pretty dangerous! Let’s just hope that she knows what she is doing!
