Am I the only one who is sick of people asking how they can become anorexic? It is not something that you just become.
I'm sure there probley was something there in your brain before hand to cause you to become something like that. Although, I also believe that you could starve yourself, and it could lead to a misdiagnosed eating disorder as well. If that makes since.
Here's my thinking. I had a major drinking problem, I used to put away a 5th of vodka every day. Every single day for over 2 years. Eventually, I lead me to become an alcoholic. Although, I was not a true alcoholic because I quit, and I can drink normally now and not overdo it. Alcoholism - is not being able to control your drinking.
I think I'm rambling though. Hope that made sense.
well ofcourse that is how it starts, but it's an interesting notion, because a disorder is not something that is in your control, so I guess your habits can lead to it, but I wouldnt call it causing it... kinda low how drinking too much can lead to alcoholism but you dont actually cause your own alcoholism... I guess?
(sorry if I seem like I'm being nitpicky here, but the way the brain works is interesting... like uniquekiki said maybe you have to already have some sort of predisposition?)
that's what I was saying. however, I guess if you starve yourself long enough than you may be able to develop the actual disorder. on the other hand, I think that they probably already have the disorder before they start starving themselves. I just hate when people want to become anorexic. it makes those of us who do already suffer from anorexia or bulimia feel like people do not take it seriously.
Yes there is a difference, that's what I was saying. I was considered an alcoholic and was diagnosed as an acoholic and had to go to rehab and counseling.
I was saying that I think that a lot of girls who starve themselves, are misdiagnosed with an eating disorder too quickly.
Yes, it's a mental disorder, that can start by not eating though. Some girls simply "decide" one day they are going to be anorexic, after doing for some time, their mind and how they view things will change, turning it into a mental disorder.
I really agree. Its f***ing retarded. Your just going to kill yourself. And all the people wanting to become Bulimic. F*** that too. It's just another stupid thing created by society and the hatred of even a little fat on you.
I understand that if you don't eat you can "become anorexic". Yet, on the other hand anorexia is a mental disorder, and it is not all about food. Being this doesen't make you anorexic. There are other diagnostic criteria.
It is possible to start of just starving yourself, and it turning into a mental disorder.
Whenever you starve yourself and continue these habits daily, your mental state changes and you create a mental disorder.
hmm actually I was wondering about this, if it was actually possible to develop anorexia on purpose... because there is a difference between starving yourself and having the disorder...
It can be something that you just become though.
Although those questions get deleted because they are asking how to harm themselves, and that is against the TOU on this site.
okay. let me rephrase that question. Am I the only one who is sick of people wanting to suffer from a mental disorder and screw up their body just to lose a few pounds?
I agree with u. wudnt you become anerexic if you made a habit of never eating? come on how dumb are u if you dont know that.
Yep - that and the bulimia ones. A lot of people don't realize the seriousness of it, including the consequence of death.
Get used to it, it happens daily on this site. You learn to not even notice them eventually.
I think there is a difference between alcohol abuse and alcoholism.
lol. okay then. I'm just sick of girls doing that.
I don't really care either way.
Lol, that's more like it.
I agree with you.
yea. I hope so.
