Thin By Grace Bowman

Summary Thin By Grace Bowman ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read Thin By Grace Bowman A bright beautiful teenager popular with her peers Grace lived a perfectly ordered ordinary life Until one day aged 18 she went on a diet That didn’t stop Then couldn’t stop That trapped her in ‘a secret world of eating related happiness and unhappiness’ And saw her weight swiftly drop to below six stone A grippingly honest account of life with anorexia nervosa Thin is Grace’s heartbreaking shocking and finally inspirational story A memoir that is in part insider’s exp I m probably not the right target group for this book or rather I m too right for it but I read it anywayThin is the account of the author s anorexia and her recovery from anorexia It wasn t as painful as I thought it would be it wasn t as triggering as I had been led to believe it would beI found it very surprising that Bowman as she tells it slithered into anorexia unaware not knowing what or why this was happening to her not understanding why she suddenly wasn t able to eat any Is that what it is like for other people What about that conscious decision you make every day not to eat what about the influence it has on your life the way you try to wind your way out of social events in order to not have to eat to not have to resist the tempation What about the constant weighing the control clothes the endless sessions in front of a mirror What about the self hate and the self disgust And the incredible high that hunger will give youDoes that sound like I know what I m talking about Yes maybe I do Maybe I don t Maybe I will never fully understand or maybe I will understand too well for the rest of my lifeAnyway I expected something completely different and it s probably a good thing that I didn t get itWhat I did get was the understanding that this sickness is different for everyone Bowman may be typical in many ways with her eagerness to please with her biggest worry about her sickness being the fact that it would worry her parents But don t let that fool you Anorexia is a tricky beast and not everyone goes through it as easily as Bowman seemingly did And I want in no way deny her obvious illness and suffering by saying that It s just sotypical Teenager eager to play by the rules never rebellious finding that weight is the one thing one has control over without anyone else s saying not understanding at first misdiagnosis by doctors then therapy and finally discovery It s textbookAnd anorexia is not textbook But like I said in the beginning I may not be the right person to ask I m certainly not the most objective person to askTherefore I will neither recommend nor not recommend this book Read it at your own risk It won t harm you probably

Summary Thin By Grace Bowman ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read Thin By Grace Bowman Osé and in part survivor’s testimony it explains the struggle for self discovery and chronicles the devastating battles waged for control over mind and body Breaking secrets Grace shatters the myths surrounding this widely misunderstood illness helping those bound within the rules of anorexia to find a way out and those on the outside to understand Thin also has resonance beyond the world of eating disorders For in daring to tell the truth Grace reveals her extraordinary story This was one of those books that I had been putting of reading for a long time due to the fact that I was constantly told how triggering it was And people had not lied to me The first half of the book is very triggering and in some ways it seems to be promoting anorexia than trying to show the horrors of this But I think this all depends on the person that is reading it For example being someone who is still recovering my her eating disorder I read it through the eyes of my anorexia and bulimia instead of through the eyes of charlotte which meant I saw tips and rules on what I should be doing However the author herself is just being very open and honest with her words she is simply showing the reader her story and is not beating around the bush by hiding all the grusome truths and detailsI like the fact that the author has been completely honest with her writing because I think that this is one of those books that parents and carers ought to read in order to understand what it is that there child or even friend is going through It shows the mental thought processes battling the emotional and physical ones So in many ways the book reveals all the aspects of an eating disorder and shows just how destructive to a persons life it is I found the book to be very hard to read in many places merely because I did not want to see the truth but also because it was triggering me in some senses but in other senses it was giving me hope to another lifeI felt that the author has been very brave with her words here and I actually find myself commending her for what she did She did not get the inpatient or day patient help that I have gotten instead she decided to go it alone She just changed her mind even though she was never fully in control I think the thing that is most negative about this book though is the fact that she mentions weight and at one point actually calls nine stone the nasty nine stone this of course automatically made me feel like utter crap because all I could think now was that nine stone must be a dreadful weight to be at and so I should therefore loose the half a stone that I haved gained to make me over nine stone and then some I think that there is a lot of positives but negatives to this book and it depends on how strong you are feeling when you go to read it

Summary Thin By Grace Bowman ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read Thin By Grace Bowman To be a common one reflected in the shape of many of our lives She draws on the universal themes of female self image and self determination which have inspired such classics as The Bell Jar and A Room of One’s Own to shatter the myths surrounding anorexia And the powerful insights she brings to overcoming addiction make this an invaluable narrative for all those looking to find hope and renewal in the acceptance of change and growthThin is the most elouent account of anorexia y I won t lie I pretty much skimmed the last 10 pages Bowman tried to tell her story in a disconnected way which would reflect the chaos of the disordered mind and hopefully not trigger others Mostly all it did was annoy and make the book uncomfortable to read not because of what she was confessing or her life just the way it was written I may also be slightly jealous of her holier than thou attitude to recovery this is my theory to make myself feel better for really hating this book I just decided to recover and I did Anorexia just lost it s appeal well Ms Bowman that makes it seem like a choice and you spent several pages trying to convince us it was a mental illness And you didn t just recover on your own you still had whitecoats to help you You just made the decision to GET better and let people help no matter how you resisted which as we both know is the disorder resisting than you yourselfIn the last 40ish pages the book seemed to take a turn for the better as Bowman begins to describe the journey through recovery behaviours and thoughts which are both relateable and would enable friends and family of disordered people to better understand however few would make it through the first 200 pages of the book and the last couple of sections really let it downTo put it simply If you are disordered and looking for a recovery memoir to inspire you and help push you through this is not it If you are a friend or family member of someone who is disordered and trying to gain understanding there are better books out thereJust don t botherAll that said I am really happy for Grace recovering and hope that she lives a healthy and happy life
