Chapter: Anorexia

I think I could've written this, it's so familiar. That was me two years ago, when my Nana was dying of alzheimers. I've had eating disorders since before i'd even heard the term. This fic helped, it means I'm not completely alone, there are others who've gone through the same things. Thank you.

I loved it.
But yet I hated it.
My best friend had anorexia in grade 3.
She's so . . . . different now

I thought I had when I started but then I didn't recognise it and I thought I would have remembered it if I had.
that is strange. Sorry for reviewing again. ... well, for a third time.

This story actually sent shivers up my spine. It was very realistic. I loved you personified Anorexia by using upper case letters.
I'm actually writing a fic where Ginny has anorexia too, it's scary how many parellels there are between them.
This really was amazingly written.

Chapter: Anorexia

That was powerful. I have suffered from both anorexia and bulimia, so I can identify with Ginny and with your friend.

For me, it is so hard to understand the "gray" between eating and not eating. It's one or the other: binging or starvation. I constantly think about food and what I can and cannot eat. I do not starve myself anymore, but whenever I eat too much, I still purge. I don't know why I wrote this, but I needed to.

I ... thank you for this story and I hope that your friend has been able to get treatment. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, but often the individual has to want it so badly; to want to be healthy so badly. Otherwise, there is no hope. I finally broke down because I hated the person I had become, but starvation is a friend; there is success and pride in hipbones and collarbones, in wrist bones and hollowed cheeks. But, truthfully, that kind of mindset is detrimental.

What I'm trying to say is that you brought this across very well. Ginny and her friend "Anorexia" remind me of me and my friends, "Bulimia" and "Anorexia." But I am trying to break off connections with those two. I can only hope that Ginny and your friend will be able to do so, too.

Forgive me for rambling. Your writing style is poignant and sobering. I thoroughly appreciate this.

Chapter: Anorexia

this is so sad
i think its awful how people feel they have to do this to themselves
one of my friends suggested to me that my sister had the disorder where you excersise obbsessively. That was quite a while ago and at the time i never really thought about it but when she mentioned it it made sence and even that really got to me because she feels like such a together person. It's scary to think that it can happen to anyone.
I think you adressed the problem really well. Some stories I've read where problems mentioned I've been affected by make me feel quite insulted but this was so amazingly written.

Author's Response: I'm so sorry about your sister. I love when readers can relate, though. Thank you so much.

Chapter: Anorexia

Wow. This is brilliant. You've captured the mindset of an anorexic perfectly. I was never properly anorexic, but I did struggle with food for a long while and I still do sometimes. The point about weight loss being the only thing she's good at; that just rings so true. I know that for me, when I started eating normally, one of the biggest things was feeling like I was a complete failure at everything, since I couldn't even starve properly.

I love that you've not only delved into the disorder itself in great detail, but you've included all the effects on the victim's body, life, and the people they knew. Her friends' and family's reactions to her disorder are very realistic.

I really like the ending. I love the bleakness, the hopelessness. Most stories like this one seem to end happily and with the anorexic recovering, so this makes a very refreshing change.

Your writing style is also very beautiful, and the imagery in this story is wonderful. I honestly can't say how much I love this piece. Well done!

Author's Response: Wow, reviews like yours are what keep me writing. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it, and it's great to know that it affected my readers. I'm sorry about your eating struggles, I have them too.

Chapter: Anorexia

This is so sad. And scary. And terrible. Potent, is the word for it. It's a potent story - potent in the way it instills distress, depression, and desperation from the girl that used to be Ginny Weasley and is now this new girl.

If only Harry had lived! was all I could think as I read this. If only he had lived and had stopped her. Helped her. Something.

This story makes me feel sad, and I want to help Ginny Weasley - whoever she is now. I hope this doesn't happen in the real series - not that it was badly written, but because it is scary, and would destroy Ginny.

Yes, it all sounds sentimental. I know. Sorry. Bear with me.

I wonder whether or not the word "anorexia" is capitalized all the time. I am not certain, and anyway, it isn't that big a deal.

Just a note on one scene: When Ginny says she would dig Harry out of his grave and kiss him, I had this weird image of Ginny kissing a rotting corpse. Yeah, gross, but that's what I thought. However, it makes the scene very...I don't know, powerful, and it shows us that Ginny did love Harry with all her heart.

This fic was...amazing. Yes.

Author's Response: Reviews like yours really help an author. Thank you so much for your opinions and kind words. Sorry about the corpse..I never thought of that as imagery! In response to your other reviews, my friend is recovering.

Chapter: Anorexia

That was very good. The emotions, reasonings, and feelings were so perfect, although I don't know anyone anorexic. The beginning and end were so well done. It was morbid, but so... intriguing, and... I don't even know, but it was so well written. I do hope your friend is all right, and I accomplish you on writing such a fiction, especially since it is based on a true story and therefore possibly harder for you to write.

Author's Response: Thanks very much. Yeah, it was harder than any other fan fiction I've written.

Chapter: Anorexia

Wow! This is extremely well-written and very true to the effects of anorexia. Although I have never suffered from an eating disorder, I have read many accounts by girls who have, and your story is spot-on. Your characterization of Ginny as she struggles with her disease is very accurate and believeable. I really can't find nitpicks or anything at all to give you, even any grammatical errors. Great job!

Author's Response: Your review meant a lot. Thank you so much, I tried my best to make it real.
