Anorexia Can Be All-Consuming

When you’re living in the grips of anorexia, you can become obsessed with the size and shape of your body. People with anorexia go to great lengths to lose weight or change their physical appearance. Even when a large amount of weight is lost, people with anorexia still worry that their bodies are too big because their body image has become distorted. All this worry can consume a great deal of time and energy, leading to high levels of mental distress, anxiety, and depression. Along with emotional concerns, the  physical health complications associated with anorexia can be severe, and even fatal.
