why are eating disorders so rampant?

i have done a research about anorexia nervosa years ago but it's only now that i've seen it through reality slapping me back. a lot of people that i get to be acquainted with are anorexic if not bulimic. why is this becoming so widespread? i'm even falling to too much consciousness about having it in myself. i would love to read real life stories about people who have eating problems like anorexia and bulimia. have you experienced it? how did you get over it?

my mom is bulimic.. if shes depressed and so deprived, she eats and eats and looks for something to chew.. until she get used to my fathers insulting mouth and eventually had the numbness and regain her true self by not getting too much emotion ahead of her.. shes now normal and fine and as strong as ever. but of the long process, i help her a lot to avoid my dads inflicting verval abuse, and thus gave her possible new horizon to be away and take care of things that interest her like farming and animal stuffs.. so thats why she spends most of her time happy now in mountains and planting the list of trees we want to nurture for future investments. then, i know of someone whos anorexic... so plenty of them perhaps, most of a very young age teens to 20s. even my sister (ayu) is anorexic. even just with a matchbox size piece of meat, she freaks out and do her exercise routine... weightlift to curl ups push ups, jogging etc... i have a friend named cristina, she is like a stick and heaven knows when shes depressed, she can stand a day or two not even with water.. i tried to help these people by finding their desired food and joyful things that will make them happy, thus in the end, i indulge them to pleasure foods and spoil them eating some, thats why i gained and joined the spoiling and gained uneccessary fats... but, im getting thinner now.. ^_^, a little desperation makes them twice thinner.. my boyfriend is one.. when hes upset and full of pressure, he eats but looses interest eventually and have the upset stomach syndrome resulting to anorexia.. the more they feel empty alone and hopeless, the more they inhibit anorexia, but if you give whats of the missing from the above mentioned... all the lack of results to filling of new hope and gives new reason to move on and realization of whats happening from within and how much it is affecting them to the outside. take care.. have a good day^_^

i haven't but a friend of mine did, well they are 6 in the family all of them girls and her 5 sisters are either a model or a public figure here in our town so all of them are skinny she tried to be one but it went overboard, she got over it by asking help from her family, admitting it that she is sick and she agreed to be cured... I guess you have to accept it first and realize that its not helping you at all and asking help...
