Here is a video with a list of symptoms that will help you recognize Anorectic behavior. One cannot possibly begin to support recovery until he/she realizes that there is a problem, because the one with the disease certainly does NOT ‘see’ it. Our society is so focused on losing weight, looking like the model in the magazine (who may well be suffering with anorexia!), or being able to fit into the dress we wore in Jr. Hi when we’re 50, that we have accepted those needing Anorexia Help as having normal behavior. We ALL know someone suffering. We need to see the suffering for what it is so we can deal with it appropriately.
