Eating Disorders: The Media, or Something Else? – WARNING: Graphic images, defenitely not a happy subject.

Although it does contribute to the sheer popularity of them, there are several other factors that contribute to this disease, such as: mental illness, family environment, personality type, societal views, biology, etc… I also wanted to raise awareness of other eating disorders besides Anorexia and Bulimia, however, due to a time restriction on the project, I could only include a few.

The sufferer becomes isolated, lonely, depressed, hopless, and completely miserable. Sometimes it feels as if death is the lesser of the two evils, compared to this psuedo-life we live.
