Treatment for Anorexia Nervosa is extremely essential. It is amazing in my experience that just 30 years ago the eating disorder, anorexia nervosa, was rarely spoken about and there were very few places you can go in a way to get treatment for anorexia nervosa.
Just few years ago I was a high school graduate who’d moved abroad after graduating and was home for among my first visits. I had spoken to my closest friend, whom I had not observed in a year or two, and I asked her to meet up at well known restaurant that evening. I was so happy to have the ability to see her and so anxious to inform her about my life in New York.
I walked into the restaurant and viewed to the favorite table. There was already someone sitting there and I was disappointed but I kept looking for my friend. I walked through the entire restaurant and still could not find her. I went back toward well known table and as I acquired closer I could hardly believe my eyes; it absolutely was my closest friend sitting at our table. I didn’t recognize her because she was so thin that I didn’t know it absolutely was her until I was alongside the table.
It had been 2 years since we had graduated and I had not seen her in those 2 yrs but I wasn’t prepared for what I saw. My friend was a beautiful brown eyed woman; about 5’5″ tall and never appeared to be in either category, heavy or thin. She was always healthy looking and didn’t even remotely resemble the person standing in front of me.
She could not need weighed significantly more than 90 pounds and on her behalf 5’5″ frame she appeared as if her skin was just being stretched over her bones and that when I hugged her too tightly, she would break like glass.
My friend was experiencing anorexia nervosa and needed help. I needed to get her help right that very minute but unfortunately, she wasn’t ready to admit that she’d a problem. I prayed she would arrive at her senses quickly, before any of the deadly unwanted effects from that awful disorder had a chance to take her life. Treatment for anorexia nervosa came many years later and just with time, too.
She was one of the lucky ones who suffered with this specific disorder and is alive today and the mother of two beautiful children because she got help.
