A mop of hair


This is a manifestation of what I can only think to describe as a "food hangover." Note the distress and lethargy.

2 more things and then I'll get out of your hair.

1) I just started reading Cinderella's blog and I'm her only follower! She's got a few archived posts so it'll be a good read. I suggest you check out her site. She's very articulate and no one should struggle alone.

2) Question for you to debate in the comments section: Eating Disorders as we know them now were first documented during the Industrial Age and have become worse ever since, affecting people in 1st and 3rd world countries. As we know the disease isn't just about the media infestation of thin and pretty in our everyday lives, what are contributing factors that progress eating disorders around the globe today?

I LOVE that picture, and will check out the blog in a sec!

Factors: Need to achieve, self-destruct, fade away. Standards and expectations becoming higherand higher that you cannot keep up with them and so you choose to fall. Maybe, feels like that for me at least.

Hope you are doing ok Munchkin, x

Hmmmmmm. So many fat people influence me. Maybe if there weren't so many it'd be ok. But there's SO MANY.
And all the obvious things, like control and prettiness and what not.
Bye now.

Also to your last post, oh wow.

Note the distress and lethargy and one VERY SKINNY ARM!

There are documented cases of young women with anorexia going back 500 years. Granted, they didn't know the diagnosis, but there are medical records of things like "young woman developing immense distaste for food wasting as though taken consumption but with no apparent ill stimulus" lala la but written in ye olde English etceterarara

Pretty amazing. I think we just attention.

I think it's sort of a nature/nurture thing, personally. Some people may be predisposed toward it (maybe a faulty gene somewhere? Or a fat chromosome gone awry?) but some are nurtured into it, whether it's by a crazy childhood or other influential people in their lives pushing them that way. There are a lot of reasons; I think that's why it's impossible to pin down a cause and say 'this is why you're anorexic'.
