This was sent to me by a woman who has dealt with anorexia and bulimia for 17 years.
Next time you are trying to deplict what goes on in the mind of someone who is truly afflicted with this disorder - try this, it was frighteningly real to me. --- We all know the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, well in Twin Towers when Gollum has his very first battle with his darker side, ask while they were watching that did they feel pain for him, were they scared, did it leave a sour feeling in the pit of thier stomach? Then ask them to imagine living that nightmare day after day, minute by minute. Feeling that battle go on in your head, feel that pain, fear and pity for yourself. Being unable to stop it no matter what they did, no matter what they were going to lose; even if it was their life. Then if they can imagine not only do they have their own inner voices battling them, but friends, family and coworkers battling as well. What do you see in the mirror? Do you want to lose your kids? It gets to a point that your body no longer relies on willpower not to eat but it physically can not do it. You choke on even the smallest of fuel, your legs buckle at the thought that you have to endure another meal with everyone watching. I am terrified of the misguided information out there for these people who think that this is a lifestyle. This is not a lifestyle, this is hell on earth. A hell that the pro-ana sites are sucking children into.

And for what?
Because size 4 is "perfect"?
