This displeases me

In the world where exterior looks and image has an increasing importance on people’s life quality and social opinion, eating disorders are one of the increasing psychological problems. There are various types of eating disorders, most common of which are anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, generally used as anorexia and bulimia. There are a huge number of women and an increasing number of men suffering from either of these diseases. Although anorexia and bulimia might sound to some to be unserious illness, many people die each year because of either of these diseases.

I found this on a website detailing addictions (I think I'm addicted to caffine) and it really annoys me, every time they're is anything said or written about eating disorders, the first thing stated is always about "image", I know quite a lot of emphasis is put on self image with us, but if I was explaining it to anyone, image would be the very last thing I would say.

This was a really random post, sorry things like this just annoy me.
Hope everybodies doing alright, enjoy your weekend.

  1. I know exactly how you feel. I'm really sick of these people, categorising us and stereotyping. And it's such a contradiction! Anyway, thought I'd have a little rant on this post :P
    Hope you're having a nice weekend.
