Five years from now I will definitely remember the portion of the class that deals with disorders. I found every disorder we learned about fascinating in its own way. I am from a small town so seeing a variety of disorders isn't very likely. Learning more about whats out there and what affects some people in their every day lives is something that was important for me to do. Sometimes I take for granted that I don't have a type of disorder. As we learned more about these things I realized the struggles they go through and how lucky many of us are. One thing that stuck out to me in particular was the information we learned about the eating disorder named pica. This disorder is defined as the appetite for substances largely non-nutritional. People that suffer from this order eat chalk, dirt, spoons, and crave things that a completely healthy person would deem absolutely disgusting. This disorder is an issue because of the harmful things they put in their bodies. It is good to see that some action is being taken to treat people with this disorder.
Overall, this was just one aspect from this class that I will remember. This class was beneficial in so many ways and I look at life at a different perspective because of it.
