Magersucht is a serious and sometimes deadly mental illness . It is most commonly found in young teenage girls to young women. They restrict their intake of food and over exercise with the thought that they are humongously fat in their head. They are often dangerly underweight.
I for example have magersucht, or anorexia. I once weighed 80lbs at 5´6ft. It was not pretty now I have been in treatment for a while, but I still think I am terribly fat. Today I weigh 105lbs at 5´7ft. Three weeks ago I weighed 120lbs. I still am losing weight and don´t want to stop. I know the consequences. But it is not like I want to be this way, it is like I am forced to be this way, and yet I fail to seek help for recovery.
