Are These Symptoms of Anorexia?
I have this friend who I'm starting to wonder might be anorexic. They're already pretty skinny as it is, but even so, they've told me a number of times that they think they're getting "fat". They've mentioned to me a number of times that they're afraid of being over weight and becoming fat. They also often skip meals, like breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and substitute entire meals with a can of soda. When I ask them why they do this, they say that its because they're not hungry or even they sometimes say its because "they forgot to eat." They've told me before that their parents also think their anorexic, but she has always denied it and turns the accusations into a joke. I know she spends a lot of time in front of the mirror also. Are these symptoms of anorexia or am I just paranoid?
