    I get the feeling you don't understand what anorexia is.

    Nice try it's not that simple. It's a disease. Maybe negative people like you who don't seem to understand things make others miserable with your awful attitude. Just something to think about.

    1. more/ much  more than making people around them miserable- anorexics are miserable by and to themselves- to begin with.

    2. it's a mental disorder - something got wrong with their inner body immage = the way they perceive their own body:they see themselves fat/ overweight  while they're actually skinny.

     it's a potentially life- threatening condition and, unfortunately - it's BEYOND one's good or ill will...it's one's loosing control  over one's body and mind/ soul...

     it can stem  from various soul issues...

     it takes patience and  concentrated , harmonic efforts of a multidisciplinay team  to get these people '' back on track''

    It is a mental illness: If they don't eat at all they get extremely thin. THey are happy to see themselves thin so they continue to starve, until the point where malnutrition kicks in which leads to long term conditions if not death.

    Show her pictures of normal people her age, or take her to the hospital, or educate her about nutrition.

    Anorexia is a condition which has the source of a mental illness.  I truly do not believe people with anorexia are trying to make anyone miserable. They are already  miserable.

    Someone close to you? It's a condition. Instead of complaining and getting mad at them, you try to get them to eat.
