Anyway, I was sitting in a doctors office today waiting for my Dad, and I had about 50 minutes to myself. I looked at the bookshelf and noticed this green book called 'Wasted'.
I had no idea what it was about, but the tittle seemed nifty, so when I pulled it out it read on the cover a ,'grisly and gripping story of anerexia and bullemia'
Im really not sure if thats spelled correctly. So well if it isnt.
I began to read, and frankly, its really interesting. I myself have never suffered from either of those ED's, but the book still adresses self esteem issues everyone can relate to.
It an autobiographical acount, written by a person recovering from Anerexia who isnt quite on top yet. Its really interesting because its an account of why she choose that lifestyle, why she kept it, ect.
It has a lot of facts, and I was shocked about some of the things I thought were true that aren't. It shows the myth in the stereotypes and provides knowledge about the ED's, while still showing the realistic eiws she has now, that ED's are not about strength and control, but are really about covering up some hidden pain. She even mentioned that because her parents were health freaks, she developed an obsession about food.
I never realized how dominating an ED can be on your life. I still havent finished, but I plan on checking it out of my local library.
So, if you havent read it allready, I strongly recomend 'Wasted'.
If you decide to read it, be sure to let us know what you thought.
