Anorexia Reflections is inspired by my personal journey, having suffered from anorexia for more than twenty five years. I will guide you through explanations of the various signs and symptoms of anorexia nervosa.
Anorexia Nervosa ~ Unmasked
I will also try to explain what goes through the anorexic mind in various situations like meal times, comments from others, and so on.
Together we will also explore some possible causes for this eating disorder, as well as its effects on family and friends.
Dig a little deeper into the site, and you will also find information on:
Co-occuring disorders - such as anxiety, depression, PTSD (Post-Traumtic Stress Disorder) - are important factors and complications to consider. We will look at how these issues relate to the different eating disorders.
It's no secret that eating disorders can be fatal. Eating disorder facts and research indicate that they have the highest mortality rate of any other psychological illness.
But even with that staggering statistic, there still aren't many people who truly understand the emotional complexities or medical complications of anorexia or any other eating disorder.
Anorexia baffles most professionals, so it's understandable that us "regular folks" would have an even more difficult time comprehending it all.
While I was in anorexia treatment, I was shocked to learn about the dangers of disordered eating, and how ruthless it can be.
I believe that there are many, many misconceptions regarding anorexia nervosa. I’d like to share with you some of my experiences, and try to help unravel the mystery of this disorder from the perspective of the sufferer.
Recovery is not an easy road, but there is hope!
