Eating disorders are complex illnesses that involve physical, psychological and emotional suffering. Those who suffer from eating disorders experience intense journeys; observing these journeys may produce meaningful implications that can help us understand the suffering experience, as well as the course of their illness. The following four photos provide distinct narratives that illustrate the experience of suffering from eating disorders; each of these images portray narrative concepts that are in relation to the theories of Arthur Frank in The Wounded Storyteller: Body, Illness, and Ethics. By relating these four images to Frank’s concepts, we can begin to comprehend the perspectives of the ill and understand the meaning of the experiences that exist when suffering from eating disorders. The first image is two photos of a woman’s body before and after her eating disorder experience.
Not only was Rikki an autistic woman, but she was intelligent, not centring herself around math and science (which I strongly avoid), and she was mistreated by 'the system' for being different.

In “Suicidal Anorexics: Determined to Die” Kingsbury discusses that people with anorexia are choosing to take their lives with whatever they can get their hands on. Throughout this article, Kingsbury discusses different important measures that are linked to anorexia and includes that people are already on the border of dying and are so small and ill that even the smallest attempt with suicide would lead to death. Another important point made by Kingsbury is that anorexics have a very high chance of dying when trying to commit suicide. People with anorexia have tried using household cleaners, jumping out in front of trains, and setting themselves on fire. With an anorexic’s body weight already anything could kill them.

We forget that it is a violent act, that it bespeaks a profound level of anger toward and fear of the self” (Hornbacher 123). Eating disorders are a form addiction, and must be treated as such.

Studies show that aside from death by starvation, people diagnosed with anorexia could also die from heart convulsion and even
