I watched the film 'The Karen Carpenter Story' (1989) on TV the other day to try to figger out what's going on in anorexics minds, and in K's case it seems it was triggered by her parents telling her when she was a young teen what a nice figure she had, and their words made her feel loved and wanted. As she got older and teenage anxieties started kicking in, she started starving herself in order to get their love and attention again and it got out of control.

I was never anorexic but I hated having breakfast soon after getting up in the morning when I was a kid because my stomach wasn't awake yet and I just wasn't hungry.
Yet my mam always put a plate of breakfast in front of me and bullied me into eating it, she said "Eat it all up, you need it inside you before you go to school".
So i had to eat it but it made me feel a bit sick.
In the end i refused to eat breakfast and my mam gave in, and made me some sandwiches to take to school instead so i could eat them in the morning break. That was fine because my stomach had woken up by then, and i was hungry..Smile
So perhaps some people become anorexic when they get older because they hate food because their parents forced them to eat it when they were young?

@wonder91,
Wonder91, it's you a lot of us have been worried about, but I forgot your username at the time I read the article that I started this thread about.
I'm glad you are getting help.

I once knew a lady who was agoraphobic, afraid to leave the house.
So I said to her with a smile "Well stay in then".
She looked amazed and broke into a smile and said "Oooh thank you, nobody's ever said that to me before, I feel much better now, thank you! All i've been getting from people is "you MUST go out".
The same approach might work with anorexics, people should stop bullying anorexics and simply tell them with a smile- "Okay, if you don't want to eat, then don't eat, just have a little nibble of something now and again"..Smile
