We laugh and scorn at those emaciated-looking supermodels who make us want to shove cheeseburgers down their throats. We ridicule how they supposedly starve themselves just to be able to walk down the runway and keep their glamorous jobs. But when I watched this utterly heartbreaking video about this teenage girl who suffered from a serious case of anorexia, it’s like a slap in my face telling me that disease this is no laughing matter.

According to the National Eating Disorders Association, 20 million women in the U.S. suffer from this crushing eating disorder. Men are not prone to this disease – there are 10 million men who have been diagnosed with anorexia nervosa. These people, young and old, are faced with this immense pressure to look perfect, resulting to unhealthy obsessions with their weight.

Check out this story of a 15-year old and her downward spiral from a beautiful, healthy teenager to a skeletal version of herself.

Looking at the images made me cry. I never imagined that someone could get THAT thin. I pity this pretty girl who thinks that she need to starve herself just to look good and gain the approval of others. It made me feel sorry for laughing at those starved-looking girls and those overweight ones who struggle everyday with their self-esteem. I applaud this girl for her bravery in showing us that anorexia is real and that people like her need all the help and support they can get from us.

Please, please share this video and let others become aware of the effects of anorexia and the importance of helping people who have it.
