How can some just not eat?

Published by Suki under Eating Disorder, Treatment

You could tell me all about an eating disorder and I wouldn’t be able to say that I understand it. Not to say that I don’t have sympathy for the people that suffer from them, but an eating disorder just isn’t something that everyone understands. It’s kinda hard to. That goes double for people who come from a family like mine. In my family there’s no such thing as an eating disorder. We are all big eaters. I mean big time. We eat all the time and we love doing it. Barbecues, picnics, holidays, we get down at all of them. That’s just how we do it. That’s why it was extra weird when my sister developed an eating disorder. No one really knew what to do and it became a horrible mess. By the time we finally got around to getting her some help, it was almost too late. Luckily, things took a turn for the better when we got her some treatment for her eating disorder. She eventually came back to her normal self and that time in our lives is just a distant memory. I still don’t fully understand the whole eating disorder, but I definitely know enough to take it seriously.
