Behavior of the Anorexia Nervosa Individual
The characteristic behavior of Anorexia Nervosa is secretive and defensive. The individual is preoccupied with food and weight gain, that dominates their thought process. They often feels hungry but denies they are. They will normally wear larger clothes to conceal their body shape and weight loss.
The person suffering from Anorexia Nervosa, may resort to drugs and alcohol, to alleviate the feeling of hunger and depression. Having a relationship with someone is very difficult for this individual to do, because of the psychological state of their mind. Therefore, they are often in an isolated position, due to one or more failed relationships.
Whether trying to maintain a desired weight, remaining faithful to a spouse or reaching a goal, temptation exists – causing its victim to make a choice and sometimes several choices. When the individual feels guilty and want to do good by correcting mistakes, but finds themselves powerless against the temptation, the battle is within -thereby, causing the individual to become imbalanced. The flesh and the spirit are now at war.
Paul, the Apostle, clearly understood these things. He stated, ” For I know that in me [that is, in my flesh] dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.” Romans 7:18-20.
No human being, is empowered to live above temptation. But, we can find ways to control our fleshly desires, and to reach our goals. It is too difficult to fight these battles alone – to do so, often leads to self destruction. For more information, I recommend this book to inspire courage, hope and strength.
