People with anorexia attempt to maintain a weight that's far below normal for their age and height. To prevent weight gain or to continue losing weight, people with anorexia nervosa may starve themselves or exercise excessively.

one of my best friends was anorexic and depressed .I saw her consuming herself and I didn´t knew what to do. I share this experience with another friend, my friend was alone all day long, her parents are divorced and she was always tired and sad. We later deducted that she had all the symptoms

I have an anorexic friend , a friend who thinks and says that she is fat all the time, all my friends drink and smoke, so as I am really close to them I think my vulnerability may increase, that is why I decided to do this to explain the relation between this behaviors and me

Steps for dealing anorexia
ccept it –Accept this lose of weight is damaging your body.
1. Talk to someone-. Find a good listener—someone who will support you as you try to get better.
2. Stay away from people, places, and activities that trigger your obsession with being thin. avoid looking at fashion or fitness magazines, stay away from friends who diet a lot
3. Seek professional help. The advice and support of trained eating disorder professionals can help you regain help
“It is very important that the parents go to the doctor, because the patients deny the symptoms and try to hide the importance of the problem “(Dr. César Soutullo Esperón,2013)

If you are friend like me you should :
1. Think of yourself as an “outsider” Realizing isn’t a lot you can do to “solve” your loved one’s anorexia. It is their decision
2. Be a role model for healthy eating, exercising, and body image. Don’t make negative comments about your own body or anyone else’s.
3. Take care of yourself. Seek advice from a health professional. And you can bring others to support.
4. Don’t act like the food police. A person with anorexia needs compassion and support, not an authority .

5. Avoid threats, scare tactics,etc Keep in mind that anorexia is often a symptom of extreme emotional distress.This can make it worse

How to help a friend?
What we did
What we did was to convince my friend to talk to her mom, her mom searched help and my friend is now in treatment.It really impact me because I didn´t know how to act in front of that situation, it was really serious
I talk to my mom first, now we help her and show a lot of caring, love and support, so she won´t fall again. After the class and thanks to this investigation I can conclude risk behaviors are always in our lives, we need to be strong
I conclude that the most important thing to avoid risk behaviors is to feel happy with your life and to find the meaning of it. I think that I valor ate my life and in general I can say I´m happy so I think I am capable of avoid most of risky behaviours.But there are some in which I will have to work more
