An actor suffering with body dysmorphia and OCD takes four hour showers and has spent $150,000 - and it’s ruining his life. Taking four-hour showers, wearing latex gloves and only eating from disposable plates - Stephen Fode’s battle with obsessive, compulsive disorder has been a “life long struggle." The 49-year old also suffers from Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) - a psychological condition where the sufferer’s view of their appearance is so distorted they hate their looks and strive for perfection. To date, Stephen has spent over $150,000 on plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures and goes days without eating and he runs until the point of collapse.
