Feeling Alone

Eating Disorder Hope
It has been estimated that 8 million Americans have an eating disorder, seven million of those being women and one million men. Having any problem can make one feel alone and isolated from the rest of the population. When fighting an eating disorder it is you vs. your body and this can make you feel very alone. So many people battle this disease daily and have conquered it! How do you stray from the isolated feeling? Does going off to inpatient clinic make you feel more alone?

Researchers have found that there might be a biological predispostion to eating disorders. With this thought did you find out that someone in your family also had the same problem? If you did find that a family member also suffered from an eating disorder, how did it make you feel? Did ya'll encourage eachother in a healthy or unhealthy manner?

The Meaning of Food

Eating Disorder Hope
The body needs five things to survive Carbohydrates, Protein, Fat, Vitamins, Minerals, and Water. To many people food is so much more then the gift of survival. Food is family, art, happiness, health,memories, home, culture, and many more things. One thing that food is to me is fun,I love getting to try different foods and customs. When I get to try these new foods I feel it gives me an understanding of that cultures traditions and way of life.
On a positive note, what is food to you?
