ExcellentStart/Focus: Anorexia a behavior. Generally doc’s label but never cure. As your primary decision maker, focus 2 fronts: 1. Change eating&verify scale going ↑, not ↓. 2. The huge issue: overt & hidden beliefs. Given usual body fight against starvation, inner beliefs > overpowering healthy hunger, e.g. Self-rejection, unworthiness, lack of self-respect, nottrue, but mirrored-to-you/accepted by actions of others.
