Denise Krochta

Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Body Dysmorphic Disorder.

What is this? How is it related to addiction? How do we recognize it in our loved ones? What can we do to prevent it or help ?

On this week’s show Denise speaks with Brian Cuban, author of “Shattered Image: My Triumph Over Body Dysmorphic Disorder”. He talks about his own personal story, his relationship with his brothers, Mark (the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and Shark on the television show “Shark Tank) and Jeff, as well as other relationships in his life. Bullying, anorexia, bulimia, self-esteem, and shame are all topics touched on in this interview. You can see more of Brian on his website.
