Anthropomorphism and Eating Disorders
I’ve always found it interesting that some people refer to their eating disorder as “Ed” and give it human characteristics (anthropomorphism). I’m wondering if “naming” an eating disorder makes it easier for some people to recover, because naming an eating disorder possibly makes it more tangible, and therefore easier to do battle with? I’m interested in hearing people’s experiences with anthropomorphism/naming their eating disorder. If you don’t mind sharing your thoughts/feelings/opinions surrounding this, please leave me a blog comment, message me on facebook, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m also looking for any resources or experts that talk about this.
