Understanding anorexia


All anorexics will tell you that despite some malaises, they feel well and light, as if they're "floating".

It could be compared to a quest for drunkenness, like a drug that they can no longer go without.

Gail explains: "What's terrible is that the less you eat, the better you feel. It's like you dope yourself on hunger.
"You're stoned, like in a trance where you're receptive to everything. You're hypersensitive."

For Emily: "Anorexia was a cry for help, it's about being unrestful. Some people will get into drugs, me, I got into Anorexia. I wanted to take control of my body and see how far I could go."
