What Is Anorexia Nervosa?
What Is Anorexia Nervosa
When you ask What is Anorexia Nervosa, I sincerely believe
you want straight answers, not text book info.
Anorexia nervosa or anorexia is great aversion or hatred for eating foods.
It is an eating disorder, to put it lightly.
You just have little or no appetite for food.
And unfortunately, love it so.
Your primary reason being in order to burn off fat and
be as skinny as possible.
Causes of Anorexia
What causes anorexia really?
Causes of anorexia nervosa could range from a simple
desire to shed off a few pounds,
a desire to wear a particular smaller clothes' size, modeling, depression,
emotional upset, desire for attention, desire for death
to many more.
Oh, did I mention that some people may want to live up to the desires
of their significant other and get into anorexia?
For teens and adolescents, especially students, peer pressure
to thin out and fit into a particular mode is one of the anorexia causes.
To further push anorexia, a look in the mirror would show you
'A Fat You' instead of 'The Very Thin You', which you really are.
This comes from poor self image, lack of self acceptance.
And to some extent, low self esteem and self-hatred.
A victim usually sees self as
overweight when even too thin.
For some, anorexia nervosa is not a planned ordeal.
It is slipped into gradually as you desire to shed just some weight.
Initially, your system puts up a protest.
Later, trust the system of humans(!!!), it adjusts and
accepts the 'New way'.
So, it starts winding up. It takes little food when it sees it.
At some point, it gets really happy with you
for not tasking it to process foods.
And it gets upset when you force food down.
To demonstrate its protests, it refuses to
process foods you eat.
And insists on a throw up or vomit in a short while.
It is a slow and steady suicidal mission. You are probably ignorant of this.
But you see, while you have controls over how little food gets in,
you don't exactly have controls over the consequences.
You can't control the Long Term Effects Of Anorexia.
Except anorexia is checked early enough, a crisis point is inevitable.
The said crisis point is so risky it is really
better never to get to it.
It results in anorexia death for some.
For some others, they get really sick because of
different organ failures. For instance, when I was living an
anorexic lifestyle, my heart was not healthy and I had
irregular heartbeats. If I continued, the next could have been heart damage and heart failure.
So before you reach this point, look for help.
I reached that dangerous point.
