Eating Disorders Do Not Discriminate


Who suffers from Eating Disorders?

Eating Disorder sufferers are male and female alike. We are of all ethnicity's, religions,and economic backgrounds. We are of all ages,with very different body structures. We can looknormal on the outside and yet be suffering terribly on the inside.

Genetics, Psychology, and Media all influence the onset of an eating disorder. Once we get caught in the cycle, some days it seems as though we will never break free. We constantly beat ourselves up, every moment of every hour of every day. If we could just be perfect in some way then we would be ok. It is easier to stand alone, free from the rejection, and disappointment of others. In our loneliness we listen to the constant torment inside our heads.

You are stupid! You can't do anything right! Why would anyone want to be your friend? You are so fat! No one ever is going to want you! Who would ever love you?

Every sufferer has her or his own negative voices.We try to out run them in anyway we can.We, so badly, want to be in control of our lives.Our Eating Disorder is the one thing we have control over, or so it seems. After some time, even our eating disorder becomes out of control.We may become depressed, defensive, angry,hopeless, self harming and some of us may become suicidal.

So, we isolate ourselves,blocked off from the world. One more lap, onemore sit up, one more pound, and yet that one more is never enough. We weigh ourselves over and over and over again, thinking that the numbers will change.

We stop eating, constantly overeat, binge,or cut. We use laxatives, enemas, drugs, and alcohol. We lock ourselves in the bathroom to purge, and we exercise, exercise, and yet stillexercise. THERE IS HELP! THERE IS HOPE!DO NOT WAIT UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE.
