Dear Poll: Suffering from Anorexia in your 20s, and 30s, Ring a Bell?


In a recent Forbes Magazine article, research shows that anorexia is transcending the age barrier, now affecting women in their late 20s, 30s, and even in their 40s. This might come as a shock to some of you, seeing how anorexia has typically been viewed as a young woman's problem, so why the older diagnosis? You would think that older, more mature women would know better, but research suggests that older women are being treated for this disease because of growing public awareness of the disease, social pressure to be thin, an aging group of baby boomers, and women who simply have not yet fully recovered from a previous eating disorder.

I unfortunately know women in their teens, in their 20s, 30s, and even 50s who struggle with eating disorders, so what I want to know is, does anorexia or bulimia play a role in your adult life, affecting you either personally or a loved one?
