Get Out of My Head by Jen Foote

An eating disorder is a complex mental health issue. There is no one source or cause of the warped lens through which an individual with an eating disorder views themselves. Media and the messages they convey certainly play a role in today’s uber-connected world. Individuals are constantly bombarded with messages that imply who and what they are is not good enough, but that they can be improved – and fast! Eating disorders manifest differently but encompass an inaccurate mental picture of one’s body. It’s as though one’s brain is disconnected from the eyes and the reality of the image the mirror is reflecting back.
