For those of us who have been lucky enough to avoid ever dealing with an eating disorder it might be hard for us to get our heads around how someone could develop such a thing.

The same people will often begin to start making excuses for not eating and wanting to eat alone as often as possible. Use of laxatives might also become a problem and may be another sign of an eating disorder.
