How amazing that she is still alive. When my mother became ill, and could not eat, she died before she dropped much under one hundred pounds. This lady is half that, if I have the stone versus pound thing right.

@KitFox. I was going to say something very similar. Thank you for that. People need to realize that mental disorders are not necessarily caused by biological factors. Think about how many models, actors and athletes have anorexia or bulimia. There are a lot of things that can cause a mental disorder such as anorexia. You, dognesss, need to pick up a book. I work at a University and have a degree in Psychology, I'd be happy to help you find one. And joking about somebody killing themselves, especially when they had something somewhat positive to say about something so deadly (yes, anorexia is the deadliest of mental disorders), is just immature and inappropriate.

Wow @dognesss. I think you should be taking your own advice about the education portion. Mental illness is caused by many things, and often people with poor self-esteem develop an eating disorder. And where do you think poor self-esteem comes from? Sometimes it comes from internalized messages received from cruel peers. I imagine you are hurting from your own pains, otherwise why would you react so harshly to someone else's speculations? Check yourself, lest you become the person you least like.
