If youâ€™ve made it this far, you probably donâ€™t need a lecture on eating disorders. The fact that youâ€™re here, reading this, says you know that to suffer from an eating disorder is to become a shell of your former self, and a stranger to everything and everyone youâ€™ve ever cared about. But that doesnâ€™t have to be the end of the story. As debilitating as an eating disorder can be, professional eating disorder treatment can make a world of difference.

An eating disorder, I don’t get it. Maybe that’s because I’m the eating machine of the world. I could never think of not eating food. I couldn’t think of eating it and then, puking it all up later. It just doesn’t make any sense to me. The reality of it all is that it doesn’t need to matter to me. Each year thousands and thousands of young people are afflicted with an eating disorder. These young people find themselves in the most awkward of positions and are often left to fend for themselves in their darkest hours. There are many things that we as a people can do to defeat this disease if we put our heads together. Eating disorders have been a part of our society long enough for us to either eradicate them or to raise awareness. We can make it work and if we try, people can become aware and never suffer from an eating disorder again.
Eating disorders are a hard thing to understand. I never did. My sister got all screwy from having one and she was never the same. We did all we could to try and get her back to normal, but she wouldn’t hear of it. She kept missing meals and making excuses to miss those meals which was really crazy to me. I used to pick on my kid sister all the time when we were kids, but I never wanted to see her like this. I couldn’t stand seeing her toss her cookies after every meal and constantly worrying about gaining weight. She kept making crazy trips to the gym and she just lost and lost every bit of weight she had. Shit finally got too rough to take and I had to do something. My mom and I started doing research on places that treated eating disorders. After so much time searching, we finally found a place and enrolled Jen as soon as possible. She was given some of the most compassionate help that a person could ever get and for that we are forever grateful. Now I finally got my loud mouth sister back.
