HBO debuted a documentary on 11/14/06, which focused on 4 women at the Renfrew Center Foundation who were undergoing inpatient treatment for eating disorders. It was powerful and I highly suggest anyone who has/had an eating disorder to see it or anyone who is dealing with someone they love who is afflicted with this dangerous disease. It's very honest; very raw and very heartfelt. It goes into the lives of these 4 women and you really get to know them and care about them. At least I did. I still have to deal with Anorexia/Bulimia on a daily basis, so it was a connection for me.

Please see it.You can click on the link I provided to the HBO site and it will take you straight to the page of the documentary where there is a free preview video to watch and if you so choose, there is a place at the bottom of the page where you can buy the DVD. I don't have any money or else I would. I definitely would.

I'm really hoping that HBO will re-air this program soon, so that more people can get the opportunity to see it. It's very powerful. I highly recommend it.

Again, the comments since I transferred this from my other blog, Humanis Vegetalis.

I thought it was good as well. I watched it at least two or three times...it's stupefying how eating disorders can blur judgment and body image.

Yeah, I watched it at least that many times, too. And again, I agree with you that it's hard to fathom the degree to which eating disorders not only skew judgment about one's own body, but other's bodies as well. That eating disordered thinking is a pain in the ass, let me tell you. I still struggle with it even now. I'm 36 and I've had eating disorders since I was about 14.
