I need to write an essay about body dysmorphic disorder and I need some peer-reviewed articles for citations.
Log into your academic or public library's online database platform. Find a Health/Medical Database. Search terms may include, body dysmorphic disorder or body dysmorphia as keywords or subject terms. Limit your search to articles published within the past year if your paper requires it. Limit to "full text" if you don't have the ability to get physical copies of an article and "peer reviewed" options. Here is some information I found about Body Dysmorphic Disorder on the Cleveland Clinic's website: Body dysmorphic disorder is a mental health condition. A person with BDD is consumed with thoughts about an imagined or very slight defect in their body. The obsession interferes with their work, school, home and social life. Treatment may include psychotherapy and medication. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/9888-body-dysmorphic-disorder

What is the Apostles Creed?
The Apostles Creed was written approximately in 300 A.D. and summarizes foundational Christian beliefs. Here is an English Translation: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic* church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
I am trying to understand the difference between analogies, metaphors, and similes. Can you help me with that?
Thanks for reaching out with your question! I found a definition for "analogy" from The Merriam Webster dictionary. Metaphors and similes are figures of speech and therefore different from analogies. Here is the link for the definition. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/analogy Grammarly.com has written a very succinct article about metaphors and similes. Here is the link to that page. https://www.grammarly.com/blog/whats-the-difference-between-a-simile-and-a-metaphor/ Hopefully, these sources will help you understand the differences between those types of figurative language. Let me know if there's anything else I can help out with or if you need further clarification! Thanks, Wren Shaver
