question about lanugo

i did a lot of googling of lanugo and anorexia but only the basic information came up. i was hoping you guys could provide me with a little more information.

i developed lanugo at a bmi of around 17.5. i entered outpatient treatment with a bmi of around 16.5. i gained 9-10 pounds during the course of treatment and i am now at a weight that is no longer of an anorexic bmi but i am still underweight.

my problem is that even though i weigh more now than i did when the lanugo developed, it is still there (worst on my arms, my upper back, and my face) and it actually seems to be thicker than it was initially. i know i have more body fat now than i did when i started noticing it and it is really bothering me that it hasn't even started to go away.

i guess my question is when does lanugo start to lessen? is it a certain time frame or a certain amount of body fat that causes it to lessen? i hate having fur and i want it to go away.

2 days ago I was listening to the radio, 79.1X -alternative- when I hear "This is Mary-Kate Olsen, here to talk about summer fashion." Now, I'm thinking, strange, why would the Olsen twins be advertising a new line on this station, when I hear, "so you have to look good, and you know what that means, yup, I'm throwing up from 2 times a day to 3." And how later she'll go to 4 times.I'm in shock. Then the impersonator is saying how there should be better pictures taken of Terri Shyivo -I dont know her last name-. That she looks so dead, and they need to get her better side. Then she starts talking about how Terri should've done Coke instead of just drinking water, because "you know what they say, a blunt a day keeps the feeding tube away." And at the end she says something like why are you all staring at me, what? I'm just saying...
How the heck.. I don't have words. My friend said not to get mad, because it doesn't have to do anything with me. She knows about my eating disorder, and appearantly doesnt understand that this kinda crap, aswell as the bulimic anorexic joke I heard in Spanish today, does pretain to me, since it shapes how people look at eating disorders... I dont think this lil comrercial was humoruos, I find it sick.
