Transcript of anorexia and bulimia culminating presentation

Anorexia and Bulimia
By Emily Parnell
Imagine waking up in the morning, and hating yourself. Imagine looking in the mirror only to be disappointed with the person looking back at you. Thinking in your head "why am I so fat", or "what am I worth in this world". Not only thinking about how much you disgust yourself, but how much everyone must think the same about you.
That's how a lot people suffering with anorexia and/or bulimia might feel every day of their lives. They have no idea how much they are loved or how much they are worth in the world.
Societies "normal" teenager
flawless features
no blemishes
perfect hair
perfect body
It's almost impossible to fit that "perfect" perception. Most people with anorexia and/or bulimia feel like they HAVE to fit those expectations, they start loosing confidence and will do whatever it takes to fit in.

Causes of anorexia
Anorexia isn't strictly caused by expectations and self confidence problems there are plenty of other causes.
Anorexia can be caused by:
teasing about weight
parent or close friends dieting
high expectations
fear of growing up
need for control and/or attention
family discord (disagreement)
these are just a few of the causes
Causes of bulimia
Bulimia is a lot like anorexia but a lot not like anorexia. It isn't only caused by expectations, society, or the media. It has its own causes.
Bulimia causes:
problems controlling mood
sexual abuse
family dysfunction

(bulimia has many of the same causes anorexia has so I did not re name them)
you have all of these characteristics
loving family
a great personality

now, choose only 4 of these characteristics that are the MOST important to you out of the 10.
loving family
a great personality
For example,

you could have "lost" sports, a great personality, looks, happiness, popularity and love or the characteristics you didn't chose.
The point of the last two slides was to show what you could possibly loose if you ever developed anorexia and/or bulimia.
It also shows what people suffering with those disorders may have lost.
Thank you for listening to my culminating project!
People should be more aware of their beauty, they shouldn't have to starve themselves to fit that "perfect" perception of a person.
this is a short video showing how people should be more aware of their natural beauty, not their imperfections
