I have noticed that with many of the poems on this topic, I can usually tell, even if those who have already replied have not. I think that if you have been there, as I have, you can tell when someone is talking about this subject. Also, most people who do suffer from this cannot just say "I need help". My friend once told me, "I cant reach out to someone who wont grab my hand". This describes this perfectly. Most anorexics and bulimics do not want help, and like me, are scared of being labeled "weird", or of just wanting attention, both of which I have heard. Great poem though.
