Think. feel. act. Anorexia.

In today’s image-obsessed culture, many of us worry about putting on weight or wish we looked different or could fix something about ourselves. That’s only human. But if a preoccupation with being thin has taken over your eating habits, thoughts, and life, you may have a serious eating disorder. 

You may try to lose weight by starving yourself, exercising excessively, or using laxatives, vomiting, or other methods to purge yourself after eating. Thoughts about dieting, food, and your body may take up most of your day—leaving little time for friends, family, and other activities you used to enjoy. Life becomes a relentless pursuit of thinness and intense weight loss. But no matter how skinny you become, it’s never enough.

Anorexia nervosa is a serious psychological condition and a potentially life-threatening eating disorder. However, with the right treatment, recovery is possible.

A short film on Anorexia, Directed by Heather Mills

An eating disorder is not gender or race specific, it does not care who it affects, only that its voice is heard. Through this film, you will see that it reaches into every aspect of the victims life and those around them; it is life threatening and life destroying and should never be overlooked
