«A reckless life with no reflections»
«The year on steroids was a decadent, debauched and a boundless life».
«No longer knowing what a pretty body was».
This blog aims to shed light on taboo topics such as doping and eating disorders. The theme left in this blog is «The strangled room.
Eating and body disturbances can be compared to a choking room that narrows, deteriorate and ultimately takes life. The path from a body image disorder to the abuse of drugs can be short. We are all brainwashed every day by gorgeous retouched images that abound on the internet. Many resort to shortcuts in their search of the perfect body. There is no doubt that this shortcuts have cost many a lots. They all claim after the end of their doping use, that it was not worth it, considering the serious side effects they experienced.
The blog series «The strangled room» tells the story of Sarah who began experimenting with anabolic steroids, after struggling with eating disorders for many years. Sarah’s body was literally her own laboratory. Her aim for control came it self out of control. Her bad chooses got fatal health consequences. The solution she had pictured out for her self, eventually became the problem itself.
The blog series is basically about the long way back. The broken mental health she was left with made this journey almost impossible. She sank deeper and deeper, and eventually no longer didn`t know what a pretty body was.
Eating disorders can be seen as a form of acting out . However, when drugs are ingested, the acting out continues, only at the other end of the scale.
For outsiders, the lifestyle that accompanies the eating disorder may appear to be a poor life.
Or maybe we should regard the disorder as an expression of the soul’s minimalism.
