Treatment for Anorexia Nervosa is very essential. It is amazing if you ask me that just 30 years back the eating disorder, anorexia nervosa, was rarely spoken about and there were few places you could go in a way to get treatment for anorexia nervosa.
Just few years back I was a high school graduate who had moved away from home after graduating and was home for among my first visits. I’d spoken to my best friend, whom I hadn’t seen in a couple of years, and I asked her to generally meet at our favorite restaurant that evening. I was so very happy to be able to see her and so anxious to tell her about my life in New York.
I walked into the restaurant and viewed to our favorite table. There was already someone sitting there and I was disappointed but I kept trying to find my friend. I walked through the whole restaurant and still couldn’t find her. I went back toward our favorite table and as I got closer I could not believe my eyes; it was my best friend sitting at our table. I didn’t recognize her because she was so thin that I didn’t know it was her until I was close to the table.
It have been 2 years since we had graduated and I hadn’t seen her in those two years but I wasn’t prepared for what I saw. My friend was a lovely 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 individual standing before me.
She could not have weighed a lot more than 90 pounds and on her behalf 5’5″ frame she looked like 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 struggling with anorexia nervosa and needed help. I wanted to get her help right that very minute but unfortunately, she wasn’t willing to admit that she’d a problem. I prayed she would come to her senses quickly, before any of the deadly side effects from that awful disorder had to be able to take her life. Treatment for anorexia nervosa came a couple of years later and just over time, too.
She was one of many lucky ones who suffered with this specific disorder and is alive today and the mother of two beautiful children because she got help.
