Constant battle, with food, and it’s the media's fault!
I never knew when it first started. It’s such a gradual evil illness. No matter how many times you try to recap back, you can never figure it out. Its so unbelievably manipulative and evil it tries to take the closest of people away from you. It destroys more things than you can even imagine. It’s been 3 years now, and even me, her best friend still can’t even understand it. I’ve done research, I’ve tried speaking to people that can help, I have seen it right in front of me, and yet I still don’t grasp it.
I honestly cannot remember when it first started. I guess it is just having so much hatred within your body it feels like it’s your only option out. You’re constantly seeking to find that “perfect” and “beautiful” body image. But when this evil, selfish, delusional mental illness grabs hold of you, you will never find the “perfection” you were always looking for. Of course this idea of “perfection” must of come from somewhere though? But where? Well I believe the media are partly to blame. In-fact, the only thing I can think of that is more manipulative and selfish than the media is anorexia nervosa in its-self. The media constantly send out images of anorexic women and men, which puts unreal amounts on the public, not just stereotypically teenagers. Why is it the media feel the need to use ill people to advertise clothes, makeup, bags, hair accessories etc.. its an absolute outrage! You don’t have to reject anyone over the dress size 10 you know… And how many more girls do you want to take destroy and take away media? Mentally and physically that is. Don’t you think you have already taken enough girls just to advertise your precious clothing? No, you don’t because you don’t care… not really. Well I care, because you have taken enough people away from this world and driven enough people to hate themselves. And you have taken my best friend mentally. And the reason I have decided to take the time today and write this is for so many reasons but the main one being that I am trying to raise awareness, the media have no idea of what anorexic girls go through, but for those of you that do, I want you to read this and raise awareness make people feel better about themselves before they get into the evil big black whole. So for those that have suffered; people that have overcome anorexia, siblings of people that have had anorexia, parents, friends, family just help by making others feel better and take no notice from the magazines and books with airbrushed, skinny, “perfect” girls.
