Eating disorders develop as outward signs of inner emotional or psychological distress or problems. They become the way that people cope with difficulties in their life. Eating, or not eating, is used to help block out painful feelings. Without appropriate help and treatment, eating problems may persist throughout life.
Anyone can develop an eating disorder regardless of age, race, gender, or background. However, young women are most vulnerable, particularly between the ages of 15-25 years. Traumatic events can trigger anorexia or bulimia nervosa.
Personality Disorders are generalized, inflexible patterns of inner experience and behavior.
