Food Scares Me Too

Food scares me too,  especially the food my mom makes me eat for dinner.  It's all filled with fat and calories and all that stuff.  I don't want it and I most certainly don't need it.  So I go, day by day, not eating anything but that awful dinner they make me eat everyday.  I wish it was like the old days when I could eat alone (a.k.a eat nothing)...

If someone has had an eating disorder ( anorexia ), forcing her to eat is the worst thing you can possibly do, the very thing that makes their problem worse, and prevents her from ever enjoying food, or freeing herself from the struggle with food. As long as the person is even halfway healthy, let her eat what she wants! To be 30 some years old, and have people feeding you and make sure you eat is degrading and humiliating!! There are lots of things you can do to help someone with anorexia; I will post a story once I think about what I want to say.<br />
Take care!
