What is anorexia

Report as

Anorexia is a type of dysmorphia meaning the person is unable to see their body size and shape as it truly is. Most common in teenGe females, however, the numbers are increasingly
Present in teenage boys.
The person progressively eats less and less but cannot see the weight loss. It is also a very powerful means by which to control others, especially parents who are themselves controlling.
It is very deadly and not a joke. Kids with it need hospitalization and very structured clinical environments.
If you feel you are anorexic you MUST tell a trusted adult as soon as possible.

anorexia is when somebody starves themselves and will not eat for days at a time in some instances. It's usually because the person is insecure about their weight but everyone is different.

When you starve yourself just to lose weight. Well, that's just a shortened version of the entire explanation.

It's a health disorder where you are so skinny that it's very unhealthy, and can also be deadly. Some people starve themselves to the point that they are anorexic, but anorexia itself is not someone starving themself.

It is a disorder where somebody will only eat a little bit of food or no food each day. Most people get the disorder because they think they are fat and they want to be skinny. It is possible to die from it, but not many people that have the disorder do. Once you have the disorder it is hard to go back to normal eating habits. If the person has been not eating anything, they might have to go to the hospital, and be nursed back to a healthy weight. It is most common in teenagers.
