Years ago I worked with a guy who had schizophrenia. He would tell me about staring into the mirror and the strange things he would see. It was like when he looked into the mirror, it was not himself starting back, as there really was no self anymore, just shattered images. He'd sometimes see evil looking back or disgust. He never saw a person. He did not believe he was a person. He did not feel whole. So when he looked at himself he did not see anything resembling reality. His sister was in the hospital for anorexia and it worried him. She was probably going to die. I somehow saw these two diseases as having a link of some sort. When anorexics look in the mirror they don't see the truth looking back, either. I'm not a doctor or anything so I can't say, but there is some sort of link. Anorexia is a true mental illness.
