Anorexia Nervosa is a disorder where patients refuse to eat a sufficient amount of food and as a result, they lose an excessive amount of weight. People with this disorder see themselves as large and fear of being overweight. Anorexia Nervosa can be such a hard time in a person's life and some do not get help and sadly can die from being unnourished. It is important for people to be aware of all the kinds of disorders out there so that you can help someone get the help they need. Anorexia Nervosa also is a disorder that not many people share their stories with. While reading chapter 12 in the textbook it reminded me of an article that I read on Her Campus, which helps see the other side of someone who lived with the disorder. One part of the article really stood out to me because it shows how she thought of herself as "being healthy" when the doctor was diagnosing her with anorexia. She says, "I knew I had a problem, but I wasn’t expecting to be diagnosed with anorexia. Maybe I was in denial, but when the doctor said that word, I nearly choked. Me? Don’t they see how big I am? I’m just trying to be healthy. No one understands—they just want me to be fat, I thought." Reading an article from someone who lives with anorexia and got help, helped me understand the disorder a whole lot better.
