My Friend Ana: Video Summary:
This video I've chosen here is a bit mind-boggling and requires deep thinking and inferring. Basically, Sophie (the main) is a girl suffering from an eating disorder called "anorexia". The camp she's stuck in represents her disease anorexia. Her only friend there is a girl named "Ana". "Ana" actually represents the small voice inside Sophie's head trying to take over and control her victim-which in this case, is Sophie. Ana pretends to be Sophie's friend just so she could give into the disease (anorexia). Whenever Sophie gets into a fight with Ana, she always retreats back into the camp house and stays there for awhile. But at the end, she always ends up going back to Ana for her help. This shows that Sophie is powerless without Ana. At the end (well through out) of the video, Sophie is shown digging a large coffin-like hole. What this means, is that someday, anorexia will lead to death. The holes represent each girl's grave.If anyone thinks they have an eating disorder, they should get help, before anorexia takes the death of them.
Katie Show- Demi Lovato Eating Disorder Interview: Video Summary
In this video, famous pop star Demi Lovato, talks about her inner battles with her eating disorder, Bulimia. Demi started her journey with Bulimia at the young age of 3. She recalled saying how she wanted a "flat" stomach. The students at her school only made her situation worse by teasing and insulting her about her weight and body image. This bullying soon led to self-harm and a major incident in 2010 where Demi punched her friend out of anger. Demi used to eat two meals a week and would purge six times. Even if she drank a glass of juice, she would get scared and purge. When she entered the Hollywood world, things only got worse. The media would criticize her constantly (example:she looked fat in a particular dress). After the punching incident, Demi decided to go to rehab and get treatment. Her days at rehab were agonizing and the rules were very strict. Even though rehab wasn't her "favourite" place in the world, it definitely helped her with her disorder. Demi's family also made a huge impact by supporting and cheering for her. Although Demi still has memories of her past demons, she knows everything's good now.
