My anorexia has always been dormant with in me. My mom had always been super thin, thus she always
wanted me to be super thin. My father happened to be very over weight, thus i could NEVER be overweight. As a child i was
a little chubby, but in no means fat. But the comments from my parents always put me down. I never felt that i had my
parents approval. When i was 15, my anorexic tendencies began to imerge. My older sibilings were perfect students, going to
amazing colleges, i was not. I was a good student, but not amazing. Thus when my grades were, once again, not good enough,
and complete instability formed in my relationships with my parents and my best friend, i began to starve myself. I tranferred
highschools for possible better luck socially, and because of all this chaos and my insecurities, i resorted to any amount
of stress with starvation. My weight is the only thing i can control, and as cliche as it sounds, it really was. Family problems
increased, teenage angsiety, grades were slipping, i had absolutly no one to talk to, friends and family were dying, and all
i did was lose weight. It is my subconscious mechanism of dealing with stress. Why i have an eating disorder: A search for
approval and control.
