Anorexia Nervosa. It often goes hand-in-hand with Bulimia Nervosa.

It's a disease in which someone starves themselves. It's not a fad diet, and it's not a choice. People who are truly affected with the disease do not enjoy it unlike the "pro-anas" that think that Anorexia is a way of life, and try to starve themselves for attention.

ANYONE can be Anorexic. Not just rich white girls. White, black, latino, old, young, pregnant, skinny, fat, asian, rich, poor, smart, dumb. It doesn't matter.

anorexia is not when you puke after you eat, that's bulimia. anorexia is an eating disorder where the person starves themselves for what ever reason. it's usually to lose weight at first but then it gets out of control to the point where they want to eat but they won't let themselves. sometimes people starve to have self control.

Anorexia Nervose is a horrible and deadly disease, that has effects on different races, ages, genders, and so on. It usually is caused by peer pressure, or the belief that in ordered to be loved, or worthy, or accepted is to be perfect and skinny. Anorexia is not something to take lightly, and is soemthing in need of serious treatment.
Anorexia developed slowly within Jane after she was fed up with peer pressure from her mother about the need ot be perfect.

Proof that the human body is not meant to imitate a plastic plaything from Mattel...or for you cynics, the disorder in which the afflicted refuses to eat in an attempt to get thin.
I heard that one of my former classmates is suffering from anorexia...she wants to be a size 0 so she can model for Deb....

It's a MENTAL DISEASE, nobody chooses to have anorexia, UNLESS if your a 'WANNAREXIC''.
Basically, it's a disease were you have a poor body image and want to be really skinny. And it really, really sucks. You can't exactly get rid of it, I mean you can get your eating habits better if you get help but just because you start eating doesn't mean anything! It never really goes away, and it's awful.
It's more common with young girls, not really common with guys.
Retard: ''Ha! Look at that skinny teenage girl over there! I bet she's just looking for attention with this entire ''Poor body image'' crap''.
Smart person: ''What are you talking about? She has anorexia you dumbbutt, get your facts straight''.

A serious eating disroder that cause women and men to see themselves as bigger then they are. they go to many extremes to lose weight and starve themselves so they can fit in with what society says is "beautiful" It can lead to malnutrition,hair loss,stunted growth,bone loss,anemia,low immune system,ulcers,rupturing of your stomach or intestines from lack of food and over exercising,and death.
not only do people who struggle with this disroder have to carry it with them,they have to deal with it everyday.Thoughts,fears,triggers, its a deadly disease that has one of the highest mental and death rate.
I struggled with anorexia for about 1 1/2 years, I dropped down to 70 pounds from 125 which was a good weight for me being 5"6.5 and at the time i was 15 turning 16 I am now 17 and back up to 125 pounds and eating normally,but I still have triggers. not everyone with this disorder can push away the thoughts and fears of becoming huge or eating whats healthy or how much they need to exercise it will always be with them in their minds.We all need to make change of this society and stop these disorders
