  • It's not called a DISORDER because it's a good thing. It's incredibly unhealthy, and it CAN BE FATAL. People die from this disorder.

  • I think you need to have your sister talk to someone. YOU can not have control over something like that.

  • um...i think you need to take her to the hospital and get her examined. not trying to be mean or anything, but they dont call it a disorder just for the fun of it.

  • Left untreated, Anorexia Nervosa causes the shut down of all vital organs. Google Karen Carpenter.

  • You had to ask this? It's a terrible thing to put your body through and a never-ending cycle.

  • Google anorexic pictures and send them ALL to her. Let her see what it will do.
