This link will take you to a video that explains exactly how eating disorders affected your development. It really emphasizes that a person who suffers from any type of eating disorders stops developing at that time. If you had an eating disorder at the age of 16, but are now 45 and over it, some parts of your brain still function as though you are 16 because they never got a chance to develop. I think this video is perfect and really captures what I was trying to say. She clearly states on how this is an issue, and how it can affect you development. Hope you all enjoy!
