Eating Disorders Are an epidemic among Survivors of Rape and Sexual Abuse.
I've been struggling with eating disorders ever since I was assaulted. For a long time I thought that I was crazy and that there was something extremely wrong with me.I think I was unconsciously trying to punis my body for somebody else's crime. I couldn't properly identify my eating disorder for what it was, a survival machanism and an inability to cope with my emotions. Later I found out how many survivors od rape and sexual abuse struggle with the same problem.
