Interesting topic. I must be honest- I disagree with nearly everything in that article.
the five plus decades of research on the disease that basically says, "If your kid is anorexic, you fucked up."
I actually find this almost hurtful. My mother blames herself extremely for my eating disorder, and she might as well blame herself for the fact that I got a paper cut yesterday. I am very close to my family and value them incredibly. I can honestly say they have not played even the slightest role in the development of my eating disorder. Nobody in my family has ever had an eating disorder. For me, family just doesn't come into it.
A little off topic, but I always get a little... annoyed? when texts try and insist 'all anorexia is because OF:'
I genuinely don't think there's one reason alone. I don't think you can say 'all anorexia is because of skinny supermodels', or 'child abuse', or 'control', or 'not wanting to grow up', or 'family problems'. I don't like blanket statements like that.
The hard truth is that eating makes me a million times happier than not eating ever did.
