Eating Disorders - How and Why They Suffer

    People with eating disorders suffer in many ways: physically, mentally and emotionally. Let's look at each way of suffering separately.

    Mentally they experience feelings of fear, inadequacy, and reduced ability to concentrate. All this affects the patient study, work and relationships. In severe cases sufferers even leave work or study because of their inability to cope with stress every day. Their strategies to cope with limited food. They have a party or starve yourself to cope even with little stress.

    So you can see that the mental part of the suffering significantly reduce quality of life of patients with anorexia-bulimia.



    Emotionally they all feel down normally although anorexics sometimes feel high at the beginning of this disorder. Satisfaction and happiness comes from only those fake food (or should I say of abusing food:. Binging, purging or starving yourself)

    People with bulimia eating disorders who dream about food while asleep or awake. They dream of what they want to eat, what will they prepare for the next party. They then spent the entire next day preparing a feast.

    You may ask: "How do they feel if they do not go through with the misuse of their regular food?" The answer is: "They feel like an alcoholic who does not have anything to drink or like a drug addict who does not have access to the drugs they feeling shaky and nauseous, they feel they have to binge and purge whatever cost, they can not. concentrate on anything else except for food. "

    Anorexia on the other hand fear food and regards food as evil and dangerous. They believe that a single bite of food will make them wear a large amount of weight. And if they have little food they were forced to work all of that by over exercising, vomiting, laxatives or enemas.

    People with eating disorders are usually withdrawn and hide their feelings. Instead of identifying, recognizing and dealing with their emotions they blame themselves, feel guilty and anxious. They often compare themselves with others and always find themselves lower than men. They always think that others are doing better then them.

    These thoughts produce more guilt and shame in their souls which then makes them turn to food abuse again and again.

    Binging and cleaning seem cathartic because it stimulates special reward centers in the brain. This led to a false and temporary aid to state their minds. Soon they are addicted to a false sense of relief and like alcoholics or drug addicts can be addicted to the feelings binging gives them.

    Anorexia get the same feeling but in relation to starving themselves. They get a strange feeling of satisfaction because of hunger.

    Physical suffering includes constipation, increased sensitivity to infection, abdominal pain, headache, nausea, anemia, kidney damage, very low pulse rates, heart problems and brittle bones due to low bone calcium.

    Vomiting can cause tooth enamel erosion and tooth into rust and flaking. Will usually be very sore throat and salivary glands may increase the size to make sufferers face puffy and swollen.

    The most serious consequence of having an eating disorder is a complication of heart, as this can cause sudden death even when one is asleep. This occurs due to very low levels of minerals (especially potassium) due to vomiting or starvation.

    The heart must have potassium and other minerals to work properly and to stay strong. If there is an extreme shortage of potassium the human heart just stopped working.

    To conclude, it is important to understand that throw up and hunger is only one way to add more of your existing problems. This is not a release for the day-day problems but definitely fired ways to improve them.
