I don't understand why the overall consenus that society has consumed to be the majority's vote is that eating disorders are reserved only for women. The problem of annorexia (and bullimea, i feel that both follow hand and hand) is one that does not follow the same guidelines as makeup and menstrual cramps.
I am a man, straight, in my early twenties who has drowned myself in the pains of inadaquecies and self dillusion for years. I was discharged from the armed service over a year ago after being diagnosed with annorexia (I was 5'10, medium build, and weighed 112 pounds.) In order to convince everyone back home that I was alright, I began eating, and thought that I could be normal. I even convinced a shrink, give me an oscar!
Soon I began self induced vomitting, and before I knew it, it became easier and easier, so I ate more and more. Now here I am, more than a year later, waiting for my teeth to rot out and a hiatel hernia to emurge while everyone around me is fooled by my fascade. I just want to let it known to all that obsession and addictions such as this is not reserved only for the founders of the double X chromosomes.
