Selfie addict helps others cope with tech overdose
Danny Bowman, 19, from the UK became one of the world’s first self confessed “selfie addicts” after posting 200 pictures of himself every day on Facebook and other social media platforms.
He was seeking admiration and adoration but was never satisfied with the way he looked. He lost weight and eventually even attempted suicide. He soon received therapy for technology addiction, OCD and body dysmorphic disorder – an excessive anxiety about personal appearance.
Now he devotes his spare time to raising awareness of mental health and technology related addictions and helps others with similar problems to get through their ordeal.
Listen to the report by Ashley Byrne in Northeast England:
