I've had anorexia since I was 8, now weigh 84.8 lbs at 19 years old and 5'4'', and I have yet to find out the cause or "reason" for my E.D. though I would love to know. When I was in the hospital, they told my parents and I that it was "because I wanted to stay a little girl". And that was highly untrue in my mind. They also said that my parents are "making me feel like I have to stay a little girl". Which is also very untrue, my parents were and are great parents. I don't believe they had anything to do with it, and the doctors definitely made them feel guilty as well as myself. It's hard to believe how doctors will blame anyone and anything..especially when you've explained to them all your struggles and they totally eliminate everything you said, and then try to mentally feed you why they think you have it, and when you tell them they are wrong, they insist YOU are wrong.
The whole thing, is WRONG.
