I was in my twenties and the only way to be happy was to get fitter, but there were some issues that plagued me for much of my life. My problem with fitness, and self-image, in particular, stemmed from a medical condition called Anorexia Nervosa. It’s not too different from Bulimia and Bulimia II, with bulimia occurring without any knowledge of the underlying causes, and Bulimia II occurs when someone is starving themselves after eating large amounts of food. This condition can cause you to lose weight rapidly while trying to look thin. The effects of this disorder are often felt by people who have it and those close to them. People who suffer from these mental illnesses such as anorexia tend to be ashamed of their bodies and find it hard to feel like they have a normal body. In addition, some people who suffer from bulimia might also develop low self-esteem. Many women experience depression when their diet doesn’t go well and may feel so bad about themselves that they don’t believe anyone could see them at all. There’s a lot of shame associated with having bulimia and having the need to feel skinny or fat. On the other hand, men can also experience this. Some guys will become quite aggressive or even violent when they have this disorder, which is why it should be taken seriously. Although this disorder is usually treated early, it has many repercussions for yourself and your family that you may not want to think about. One thing you should keep in mind about having anorexia is that it’s not something you can just “snap out” of without treatment or intervention.
One of the main reasons why having anorexia is so common in young girls is because they’re worried about how much weight they’ll gain. They want to gain muscle mass so that they can look more masculine, but they think they need to lose the excess fat. When you gain so much weight, you find yourself feeling extremely depressed. Your self-esteem starts lowering drastically. You start thinking that you can’t be loved, or accepted, and you begin doing awful things that make you ashamed of your physical appearance. Another thing that makes it worse is the fact that most of the time those who suffer from being overweight are very insecure about it. Most people who have severe levels of anorexia are really insecure about what they look like, so they don’t take care of themselves, they don’t exercise regularly, and they always eat little to nothing.
It’s easy to overlook how common it gets. Everyone is affected by having anorexia, even if you don’t identify with being overly concerned by it. Having anorexia has helped me learn and grow, especially as far as healthy relationships go. It’s made me realize just how much my personality and character are shaped by the thoughts that go through my head. Being fat didn’t make me any less human. It’s forced me to acknowledge the things that I could have done better and it gave me hope that someone could treat me the right way. As long as you’re getting the right help and treating yourself properly, you’ll still be able to have fun and enjoy dating and hanging out with friends. That being said, having anorexia can lead to some pretty serious psychological and emotional problems. These include anxiety and panic attacks. If you have anorexia, you’ll constantly worry about your own weight and not just the size of it. People who have a certain type of anorexia will also worry about if they look like they’re beautiful or sexy to others and if they’ll be good role models to future generations. Those suffering from bulimia will worry about whether they can look attractive to men. Their bodies make up a lot in terms of sexuality. Having anorexia makes you feel incredibly worthless because of having these negative thoughts. A lack of love should never go unnoticed, so having an anorexia disorder is a constant struggle.
