this one is about anorexia
as this affects both boys and girls
what is anorexia?!
well one website states it simply as:
Anorexia nervosa, commonly referred to simply as anorexia, is
one type of eating disorder. More importantly, it is also a
psychological disorder. Anorexia is a condition that goes
beyond concern about obesity or out-of-control dieting. A
person with anorexia often initially begins dieting to lose
weight. Over time, the weight loss becomes a sign of mastery
and control. The drive to become thinner is actually secondary
to concerns about control and/or fears relating to one's
body. The individual continues the ongoing cycle of restrictive
eating, often accompanied by other behaviors such as excessive
exercising or the overuse of diet pills to induce loss of
appetite, and/or diuretics, laxatives, or enemas in order to
reduce body weight, often to a point close to starvation in
order to feel a sense of control over his or her body. This
cycle becomes an obsession and, in this way, is similar to an

it is' because you may have it.
i for one hate being told what i have when i already know and
people explain it wrong.
some of you may think ayy i just want to lose weight. no biggy
i just want to lose this bit of fat over here *grabs a piece of
skin* see?! well to be honest girls this isnt actually bad.
girls need this in order to have kids and i know for a fact
that it doesnt go away no matter how much weight you lose.
and for boys. if your reading this and at the moment you may
think that you are fat and need to lose weight. a strong tip is
that if you have a big stomach then you can keep trying if you
want but dont go to the point where you are so hungry that you
may pass out. eat in moderation.
for both you girls and boys i tell you please if you even have
a slight thought that you may have this please tell someone. i
know from experience that this is quite difficult but you will
get through it.
getting over anorexia was the best thing to ever happen to me.
am i confident about my body? haha no not at all. im a girl
that wants to have the perfect body. im still on my way.
see i still have parts of me that think like someone with
anorexia but i eat. alot....probably to much. but the thing is
im not fat, or chubby, i am skinny but i have to go off what
people say because in my eyes i am a fat girl since birth.
i was born as a small skinny baby? i dont care i still see it
as fat. but over treatment this feeling will soon go.
if your not confident enough to tell your parents then tell the
school councilor. or maybe a close friend. someone you can
trust. or even me.
