Treatment for Anorexia Nervosa is quite essential. It is amazing if you ask me that just 30 years ago the eating disorder, anorexia nervosa, was rarely spoken about and there were not many places you can go in a way to obtain treatment for anorexia nervosa.
Just few years ago I was a high school graduate who had moved abroad after graduating and was home for among my first visits. I’d spoken to my companion, whom I hadn’t seen in a year or two, and I asked her to meet at our favorite restaurant that evening. I was so very happy to manage to see her and so anxious to tell her about my entire life in New York.
I walked into the restaurant and looked over to the favorite table. There had been someone sitting there and I was disappointed but I kept looking for my friend. I walked through the whole restaurant and still couldn’t find her. I returned toward our favorite table and as I got closer I could not believe my eyes; it absolutely was my companion sitting at our table. I did not recognize her because she was so thin that I did not know it absolutely was her until I was alongside the table.
It had been 2 years since we’d graduated and I hadn’t seen her in those couple of years 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 did not even remotely resemble the person standing in front of me.
She could not need weighed a lot more than 90 pounds and on her 5’5″ frame she appeared to be her skin was just being stretched over her bones and that when I hugged her too tightly, she’d break like glass.
My friend was suffering from anorexia nervosa and needed help. I needed to obtain her help right that very minute but unfortunately, she wasn’t prepared to admit that she’d a problem. I prayed she’d arrived at her senses quickly, before some of the deadly unwanted effects from that awful disorder had an opportunity to take her life. Treatment for anorexia nervosa came a few years later and just with time, too.
She was one of many lucky ones who suffered with this particular disorder and is alive today and the mother of two beautiful children because she got help.
