Eating Disorders

  • Anorexia nervosa: FAQ
  • Although girls and women are most often affected, boys and men can also suffer from anorexia nervosa. The first symptoms of anorexia nervosa often begin by the teenage years, but for some, the illness does not begin until adulthood. People who develop anorexia nervosa are often "perfectionists" and tend to push themselves to achieve difficult goals. Anorexia nervosa sometimes develops following a stressful or upsetting event (for example, the loss of a relationship, a difficult move, or life change).
  • Do people with anorexia nervosa see themselves as thin?
    Most people with anorexia nervosa do not see themselves accurately and lose perspective about their own body size or shape. It is common for people with anorexia nervosa to experience "body image distortion" (another way of saying that they do not see or experience their bodies accurately). Usually, people with anorexia nervosa will compare themselves with others and imagine that other people are thinner.
  • Is anorexia nervosa related to sexual abuse?
    Anorexia nervosa is not necessarily related to sexual abuse. Most people who develop anorexia nervosa (about 2/3) have never been sexually abused and it can be harmful to mistakenly assume that they have been. However, it is true that a large number of people with anorexia nervosa have been subjected to sexual abuse. For those people, feelings about body weight and shape may become fused with painful feelings and memories of abuse.
