    Eating disorders can be scary and at times feel completely out of control. Today I am offering up 7 facts about anorexia and why it's so important that we get help as soon as we can. I know recovery from an eating disorder is difficult, but know that you are not alone and you can get through it!
    1. Bad breath. This actually has nothing to do with our dental hygiene, it really happens because we aren't giving it enough nutrients and our body is eating itself to survive. The bad breath that comes with EDs is very different from regular bad breath, and the only way to make it go away is by nourishing our bodies.
    2. Heart problems. When we don't give our body enough food and nutrients it begins to eat other parts to keep us alive. One of the things it will break down is muscle. Since our heart is a muscle, this can weaken it and lead to heart attacks. I have seen this when I worked in inpatient eating disorder treatment centers. Please be careful and go get a check up asap!
    3. Osteopenia & osteoporosis. Just like I stated before, when we don't give our body enough food and energy it will begin eating away at our muscles and our bones. It will leech the calcium from our bones to keep us alive. This can lead to the breaking down of our bone density, but if we catch it early enough we can usually repair it!
    4. Skin and hair issues. Firstly our hair will fall out because it's honestly seen as an extra in many ways. We don't need it to survive, therefore our body will stop producing it as it looks for ways to save energy. Also, our skin can sag and age rapidly. Our skin needs fat, water and many different types of nutrients to look supple and smooth. If we are starving our body our skin will look starved too.
    5. Cognitive functioning. If we are starving ourselves, we cannot focus or remember things properly. Our brain needs a lot of energy to function! Especially fats and proteins. If we aren't giving that to our body, it can't do all that we need it to and we may forget things, not be able to concentrate at work or school and we will struggle to keep up with our work.
    6. Anorexia doesn't discriminate. It doesn't care who you are, what age, race or gender we are. Eating disorders are a coping skill and they can happen to anyone.
    7. Recovery is possible!! With the proper help and support we can over come our nasty ED!!! Trust me, I have seen it happen for so many others and I know it can happen for you.

    I like the way you talk. For a half second I thought we were old friends. It’s just that engaging. As you were talking I had to put headphones in to stop my evil sarcastic ed voice from chiming in.

    Is there any way you can cover a topic on eating disorder relapse? What are the best ways to avoid relapse? Etc.... Maybe help for people who are recovering.

    Oh my god. I have almost all of these and I don't have anorexia, but swallowing disorder. The peristaltic wave of the oesophagus is too slow. I'm really skinny, because eating is really difficult and I simply cannot get enough food down or like I would have to eat 24/7, but going to work and all that, it's not possible. The doctors don't know what to do about it. There's no cure. I haven't worried too much about it, but now that I recognize having all of these problems, I'm a bit worried. I didn't realize all of these weird symptoms were caused by my poor nutrition.

    Hello, my name is a Chrrristoppher AcChu (student) and I live Minnesota. In the county that I live in people of authority can place mental health commitment holds on individuals with out any prior record or any major signs or symptoms of mental illness. I am not a member of any activist group, government group or "College group". Alot of the elderly people seem very prejudice toward people of color since the Black Lives Matter protests. In Hasting, MN there is a refinery that likely largely contributes to pollution and Mental illness . The smell of the city of South St Paul can be smelled from 3 cities away because of what they say is the stockyards. The nearest jail is private.... and and most physicians from what I've seen are not american or doctors that I nearing retirement. I friend of my said that he has never once showed his degree for a job interview. May 2019.

    I think another thing to add about anorexia and it not discriminating against is size.
    Now pause.. obviously during the extremes people are verrryy skinny but just because someone doesn’t look very skinny doesn’t mean they don’t have an eating disorder.

    It’s good that you told us this, but anorexics don’t just go to a therapist or counselor and explain our problems, because we think we are helping ourselves, so it would need to be someone else that does something but that would be hard because we are pretty good at hiding it

    Being skinny is not worth your life. Skinny does NOT mean beautiful my loves. I think I’m struggling with anorexia and it’s scary, but pain does not mean beauty. You are worth more then what you think you are. Please talk to someone my loves

    It took me 26 years to recover from anorexia. I have ostpeorosis, I lost an inch in height and worst of all - due to bone loss - NOT loss of enamel due to BULIMIA because I never purged in that way - I lost all my teeth. So now in my mid-fifties for the rest of my life, I'm wearing dentures. If you are in the early stages of anorexia, please get treatment and work hard in treatment. Its tough, I know, but it's possible.

    @katimorton, I’ve got a question about my eating disorder. When I’ve fasted for a few days and I eat/drink again (usually to purge, so lots of water with each bite) the very back of my mouth HURTS. Swallowing is so difficult and it makes it not even worth it to eat. Do you get this a lot? Is this A Thing or just a me thing? What does it mean? Sorry if this is too descriptive, hopefully it’s okay to post
