Why Don't You Just Eat? -- Educating People About ED

September 28, 2011 Angela E. Gambrel

I have run into many people who just don't understand eating disorders since I developed anorexia in my early forties. Many people would ask me, "Why don't you just eat?" They did not realize I was terrified to eat. In this video, I talk about some common misconceptions about eating disorders and what we can do to educate people.
