Your friend may be onto something.
As you are aware,higher learning puts demands on the brain and these demands can easily turn into stressors,an eating disorder's ally.
Taking time off now to work on the mind/body connection could provide useful in the near future.
Try to view it as a preventive measure.
Here's the thing: if you choose to enter into a clinic setting,you will still be educating yourself with information designed to help you for many years to come.
