Hola queridos amigos de hive y de esta hermosa comunidad de holos-lotus, ¡Quiero aprovechar en este día para hablarles un poco sobre lo que representa la fecha de hoy 30 de noviembre, ya que es considerada como el día internacional de la lucha contra los trastornos de la conducta alimentaria!

Muchas personas no tienen idea de que es esto, de como se trata o como prevenirlos estos trastornos, para ponerlos un poco en contexto, son diferentes enfermedades complejas que colocan en riesgo la vida de las personas a las que afecta, algunos de estos trastornos incluyen, la bulimia nerviosa, anorexia nerviosa, los trastornos por atracón o evitación, la restricción de la ingesta de alimentos y el trastorno de rumiación, entre otros.

Y se manifiestan en la forma de una preocupación e inconformidad excesiva por la imagen propia y el peso corporal. Este día se implementó para concientizar a las personas sobre el sufrimiento al que se enfrentan las familias, y las personas que padecen de estos trastornos alimenticios.

Hello dear friends of hive and of this beautiful community of holos-lotus, I want to take advantage of this day to talk to you a little about what today's date, November 30, represents, since it is considered the International Day of the Fight against Eating Disorders!

Many people have no idea what this is, how it is treated or how to prevent these disorders, to put you in context, they are different complex diseases that put the lives of the people they affect at risk, some of these disorders include, bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, binge eating or avoidance disorders, restricted food intake and rumination disorder, among others.

And they manifest themselves in the form of excessive concern and disagreement with one's own image and body weight. This day was implemented to raise awareness about the suffering that families face, and people who suffer from these eating disorders.

Según la OMS (Organización Mundial de la Salud), es la tercera enfermedad crónica a nivel mundial que prevalece entre los jóvenes, y que puede comenzar desde una muy temprana edad, manifestándose con mayor frecuencia en jóvenes de entre los 12 y 24 años de edad.

Se pueden catalogar como un trastorno mental que ocasiona un comportamiento patológico en la ingesta de alimentos al mismo tiempo una obsesión por el control del peso. No importa la edad, sexo o situación; y se encuentran vinculadas a distintos factores, como: biológicos, familiar, sociocultural o psicológico.

Tengo la experiencia personal de tener un familiar con este trastorno, no se siente bien con su peso, eso con frecuencia le desata una gran dosis de ansiedad, al punto de que muchas veces no quiere salir de su casa, no le gusta hacer nuevas amistades, sufrió de bullying y he podido presenciar su sufrimiento, como era injusto que se burlaran por su apariencia y por su peso por parte de personas inescrupulosas e ignorantes que a sabiendas o no de lo que hacían, le han podido causar un fuerte daño psicológico, y como nos ha afectado a sus familiares.

According to the WHO (World Health Organization), it is the third chronic disease worldwide that prevails among young people, and that can start from a very early age, manifesting itself more frequently in young people between 12 and 24 years of age.

They can be classified as a mental disorder that causes pathological behavior in food intake at the same time as an obsession with weight control. No matter the age, sex or situation; and are linked to different factors, such as: biological, family, sociocultural or psychological.

I have the personal experience of having a family member with this disorder, she doesn't feel good about her weight, that often unleashes a great deal of anxiety for her, to the point that many times she doesn't want to leave the house, she doesn't like to make new friends, suffered from bullying and I have been able to witness her suffering, and how unfair it was being mocked for her appearance and weight by unscrupulous and ignorant people who, knowing or not what they were doing, could have caused her a strong psychological damage, and how it has affected our relatives.

Es por eso mis queridos amigos que debemos tener empatía con todas las personas, muchas veces no sabemos que pasa por sus mentes; o como ciertos comentarios, o preguntas pueden afectar a esa persona. Leí algo y me gusto mucho, decía: “No opines sobre lo que come o deja de comer alguien, si ha engordado o adelgazado, o su cuerpo, no tienes ningún derecho a hacerlo”, creo que en la medida que se puedan concientizar a las personas sobre como actuar ante este tipo de casos o de manera general, todo sumará para que sea menos difícil el día a día de las personas que desafortunadamente sufren de este tipo de trastornos alimenticios.

La lucha comienza por comprender y ayudar a los que la padecen, aprender a lidiar con el conflicto diario, “Si no sabes, no juzgues”.

That is why my dear friends we must have empathy with all the people, many times we do not know what is going through their minds; or how certain comments or questions may affect that person. I read something and I really liked it, it said: "Don't give your opinion about what someone eats or stops eating, if they have gained or lost weight, or their body, you have no right to do so", I think that it is important the extent that people can be made aware on how to act in this type of case or in general, everything will add up to make the day-to-day life of people who unfortunately suffer from this type of eating disorder less difficult.

The fight begins with understanding and helping those who suffer from it, learning to deal with the daily conflict, "If you don't know, don't judge."

De nada @luisanarincon7. Espero que alcances tu nuevo objetivo 😅

That's a good write up.

That is why my dear friends we must have empathy with all the people, many times we do not know what is going through their minds;

I don't necessarily think we have to have empathy with everyone, fut not judging anyone is already a big step forward.

Take care and have a nice day.
