Question 7: All the love won't help, if you don't educate yourself. Sadly, love is not all you need. Also, love can be very demanding and selfish, although it is still love. Education is necessary to be able to distance your own feelings about the person's problem from the problem your loved one is having. Otherwise, you will always tend to demand without really knowing that you do so. Anorexia is a toxic thing, really, for yourself and the person you are trying to help. "Love them" is in (imo) 99% just not enough. :(
Rest of the quiz is really good, though. Great job!

Anorexia Nervosa definitely isn’t a lack of appetite cause by nervous system lol it’s a mental thing a lil physical but it’s mostly mental
