Eating Disorders In TV shows -

What do you think about how Eating Disorders are portrayed in a TV Movie or Series? For example: Emma’s Anorexia, in Degrassi, the Next Generation. Miranda’s eating disorder, in Lizzy McGuire. Jessie’s Anorexia, in once and again season 1. Lexie and Jenny’s portrayal of Anorexia in the movie, a secret between friends. The one girl, (forgot her name) in the movie, sharing the secret.
The movies seem more real to me, because it really shows what can happen to someone who struggles with Anorexia, Bulimia, or other eating disorders. The TV shows, well… the storylines don’t last long, and then before it even begins, it’s forgotten.

Don't listen to what people say.
They don't know the real you, anyways.

I've not seen tv shows that have characters with ED's in, but Ellie has an ED in Girls Under Pressure. I thought that the bit where she had her ED was acurately written, not glamourising it or condeming her for having it, but her recovery was too easy. I wish it was like that for me
There's always light at the end of a tunnel, even if you have to pass a few bends to see it.
