Dear God.

I'm sure some of you may have seen this before, but here is an example of anorexia being personified and acutally invoked as a spiritual being.

Why is it, in your opinion, that some people feel the need to personify a disease? What can a person gain from treating an ED like a person or being that cannot be gained by treating it as an illness? Do you yourself ever view your disease in this way - I'd imagine if you do it wouldn't be anything as bizarre as this, but do you, for example, ever feel that anorexia is like a voice telling you to try harder, berating you for not being good enough?
