As someone who has always viewed anxiety (and anxiety disorders) as being at the root of her own experience of anorexia nervosa, I especially like this paper: "The comorbidity between eating disorders and anxiety disorders: prevalence in an eating disorder sample and anxiety disorder sample".

The behaviours of anorexia often bring temporary relief of anxiety, so it is hardly surprising that people get stuck in a dangerous pattern of behaviours!

About Me

My photo
I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
