on the eating disorder scale, anorexia was always fascinating to me. all eating disorders are about control, but this one was control NOT doing things, where bulimia was more about being out of control then retaking it.
via feministing.com, a personal look at anorexia.
diets, parents, restricting, outside control. carl rogers, father of humanistic psychology, built his theory on the idea that our problems come from outside “conditions of worth” placed on us from outside sources, parents, friends, society etc. it’s times like this when life proves the theory right.
