I will also try to explain what goes through the anorexic mind in various situations like meal times, comments from others, and so on.

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.

I believe that there are many, many misconceptions regarding anorexia nervosa. Id 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!
