I actually have no memory whatsoever of requesting this book, but it definitely seems like one I would have tried to get. I’ve never actually suffered from an eating disorder–though I have on occasion gone through short periods of time where I cut back on how much I’ve been eating because I feel like I weigh too much–but I’m of the mind that reading about topics like this, whether it relates to disorders, health problems, racial relations, etcetera is important. If I don’t personally experience these things, I need to have exposure in order to better understand and empathize with those who have.
I’ve always considered this important and so it’s really all that surprising that I wanted to learn more and read a bit on this topic. Kind of a shame that I forgot about this book, though.
