review º E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ô Marya Hornbacher Wasted A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia review Õ 9 Why would a talented young woman enter into a torrid affair with hunger drugs sex and death Through five lengthy hospital stays endless therapy and the loss of family friends jobs and all s. eta i think it s important to note that this book was first published in 1998 when things like tumblr did not exist for a generation that learned to get all information from books this book was the key to tricks and tips for anorexia not that you couldn t figure them out for yourself but if you were on the edge or something this gave you ways i don t actually say that this book should be censored i say i wish there was a way to put warnings on it i say i think it s an important book for non ED people ie family and friends and i do think it s important for people with EDs i just don t like the framing all that much that is a personal preference see my reviews of elizabeth wurtzel s books i have issues with people with mental illness who seem to lack agency in getting better hornbacher isn t 100% committed to getting better at the end of this she isn t committed to recovery and that s fine for her but i wish she hadn t written it until she was committed everything else in the book remains true and i think would have resonated and been stronger if she was committed not necessarily a happily ever after but a anything to stop this disease the kind of ironic thing is that she does get the happily ever after what i loved about Madness A Bipolar Life was that i felt like she truly tapped into what was driving her to do the things she did that she finally was brutally honest that she committed to getting better honestly crazypeoplememoirs always walk a fine line between sensationalist literature victimization fact and moralizingi appreciate the story i appreciate the willingness to show the bald face of EDs but i still uestion why this is the book she chose to write who she intended her audience to be and what she hoped to accomplish because i think the author that wrote wasted would have different opinions than the author of madness or sane and i do think that s worth considering and for the record i have done extensive work with women in their teens and older with EDs i said 25 not because i don t think people older can suffer from it but rather that they are already aware of all the tricks and tips these illnesses are absolutely devastating and they exist and i think there is a balance society needs to start dealing with in terms of celebrating thin women and calling healthy women fat or on pregnancy watch and that this book deals with the strength reuired to have an ED and not necessarily the elements of self hatred and comorbid diagnoses and beliefs that lead a lot of women and men to develop EDs 2005i think this book should be pulled from the shelves of most bookstores or at least not giving to anyone under the age of 25 but i am against censorship so mostly i just wish this wasn t the book she chose to write for a non ED audience it plays well the story is gripping it goes into detail about the horror of living with an ED it discusses why the ED is so hard to give up for the ED audience the book is literally packed with tricks and tips and ways to cheat and get around your doctors hornbacher claims that the point of writing the book was to deglamourize EDs the problem is even she at the end of the book has not fully committed to giving up her ED how can you write a book saying there is nothing good about EDs without resolving to give it up yourself i have heard people talk about how they appreciated her brutal honesty to me it read as an attention seeking method of writing to me she made herself out as a victim and she is still a victim at the end she still does not have control over her disorder of course the ending is very true to real life recovery is a painful long process with freuent relapses especially for those who have been hospitalized but instead of exploring why that is the case she spends her time talking about how she cheated the system she does not give up her basic system of beliefs that caused the ED in the first place she is unapologetic and to me paints herself as someone without any agency in the recovery of ED which infuriates me it s sad because i think she has a lot of really good things to say she just chooses to take a different route kind of the sensationalistic route rather than the de glamourization she claims to have wanted it was disappointing to me and it was frustrating and it worried me that kids with ED are recommending this book to each other in order to find tips and thinspiration i don t know i found it profoundly depressing which hardly ever happens i guess i just feel like it was such a wasted pardon the bad pun opportunity to make a positive impact on the ED community i agree with whoever said stay away from this book if you are in recovery and go visit something fishycom instead Doctor Who The Witch Hunters put warnings on it i say i think it s an important book for non ED Freakonomics A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything people ie family and friends and i do think it s important for James Bond Encyclopedia people with EDs i just don t like the framing all that much that is a Smoking with Crohns personal Everyone's Guide to Food Self Sufficiency preference see my reviews of elizabeth wurtzel s books i have issues with Ninety Days people with mental illness who seem to lack agency in getting better

review º E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ô Marya Hornbacher Wasted A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia review Õ 9 Ay to rest forever A vivid honest and emotionally wrenching memoir Wasted is the story of one woman's travels to reality's darker side and her decision to find her way back on her own terms. I m ambivalent about this book Certainly at times she pulled no punchesyet at other times still a bit under the sway of her disorder she seemed to be bragging about her successes in the extremes of her eating disorder She wasn t really healthy yet and that came through in ways she probably never intended In many ways it helped me understand how eating disorders work In other ways again I m sure unintentional on the author s part I began to understand how eating disorders and personality disorders can often go hand in hand But by the end of the book I just really didn t like her very much You know how sometimes brutal honesty can feel disingenuous as if meant to distract or redirect your attention from something else It felt a bit like that
