Item description for But I Want A Casserole by Krista Beth Driver...
Overview In our culture, eating disorders have become very serious. There is a suggested need for further research and understanding as indicated by the inability of the predominant etiological theories to explain the growth of eating disorders, particularly anorexia. An important question to ask ourselves is, Why are people feeling the need to starve themselves to death to cope in today's society? What can be done to correct this before the epidemic spreads further? There is an internal world in which people with an eating disorder live. We often find books that discuss and describe the external world (the behaviors), but rarely do we find a book that takes you into the thoughts and feelings behind the behaviors. That is exactly what this book does. This is a diary of the inner struggles one woman faced. Some will be able to identify with her, and some will come to a better understanding of what goes on underneath the surface of an eating disorder. Knowledge is the best defense against the "unknown." Perhaps that is the place to begin the healing process and prevent eating disorders from gaining more ground in this culture.

War & Peace, Love & Hate...and Casseroles! Oct 13, 2003
In a world where trends tend to cost our young women there sanity and boys their ability to deal with the lack thereof...it's no wonder that weaning off the bottle, means only to take a "crash-course" into looks, wants, futility & sex-appeal, only to fail in plain ol' everyday Communication-101. Our society seems to be so lost, trying to plug up the holes in it's head with meaningless vanity, that itself becomes the fodder that truly inhibits our children to cultivate a healthy self-being and function as the adults, we as parents, only wished they'd become. Dr. Driver here in "But I Want A Casserole" gently opens our eyes...with the pure truth, experience & consequences, regarding the ever-growing, dark & hidden world of Bulimia/Anorexia. Her true stories and pages directly from her beloved diary...act as the "sharp & ever-present pick" that can break our hearts with love & compassion...and yet...exhort us to find the needed fervor it takes to "Huff & Puff and Blow This Disorder Down". My encouragement to you, is to take on this work from Dr. Driver...and peer behind the "Eating Window" to see why our youth...and so much of our country's pool of "successful" adults, are dying inside...while a society around them is "feeding" them more of the placebos that it takes, to make this world go viciously around.
