It is very unfortunate that so many people, millions of people from all walks of life, have had or currently do have an eating disorder. This is something that has become such an enormous threat to people of all ages and of all walks of life, no matter who you are, where you are from or how old you are, it could happen to you and if it is not you that I am speaking of, more than likely someone that you know is suffering with this disorder right now. What people need to really understand is that this disorder can be deadly, it is no laughing matter. Many of you do not take this very serious because the only thought running through your head is looking like the people in the magazines, or many times peer pressure is to blame.
Whatever the cause of your disorder, you need to know that there is plenty of help available but you will first have to admit that you have a problem. If you know of someone that you suspect has an eating disorder then you need to do everything in your power to try and help them or find help for them. There are many professionals that you could talk with, if you yourself are suffering with an eating disorder. There are many reasons as to why someone would turn to something such as this and it basically all boils down to the fact that there is either something in their past that has damaged their self worth or something that perhaps they saw growing up, with a parent or relative. This type of behavior can be passed on to our children because they are all very impressionable. It is so important for any of you with children to realize that if you have an eating disorder and are not getting the kind of help that you need, you are putting your child at higher risk for becoming ill with this same disorder as they grow up.
