freedom-is-worth-it: And weight. I’ve had enough of them in the past couple of years. Technically calories don’t even exist. You can’t see them. You can’t touch them. They are a unit of energy. Do I want to base my worth on something like this?? Hell no. Why do we even weigh our bodies? Who was that idiot who decided that from now on people should weigh themselves??? What does weight tell about...

i-am-ambivalent: 1. But you eat! Of course they do. They have to or they would die, very quickly. It doesn’t matter if you saw your friend eating a chocolate bar two weeks ago, or they eat something at lunch every day: they can still have a serious problem. They might calorie count, purge, only eat ‘safe’…

Anonymous asked: I've been recovering from ednos for almost a year now and it suddenly seems harder than ever before. I gained a lot of weight at the beginning after I started to take medication for my depression. I was really happy for a while and doing well with my body, but a month ago I came down with the stomach flu and the weight loss became so triggering. I've started restricting again and I...
Anonymous asked: Someone made fun of the fact that I have been in the hospital many times for my eating disorder and a suicide attempt. I'm not at all ashamed of my past but it bothers me that there are people out there actually like this because I would never want any other person to feel the way I feel now. I just am wondering what I can do to get this all out of my head?

Re: 13 year old anon
I can’t post your question because of numbers and such, and while I’m not a doctor, it very much sounds to me like you have an eating disorder. And I know it feels like “i’ll be happy if I just lose X pounds” but that’s not how happiness is achieved, and in the eating disordered mindset, X pounds turns to X+Y pounds to X+Y+Z pounds. I strongly suggest talking to...

Anonymous asked: I've been struggling with bulimia for a few years and really want to recover, but it feels impossible to break the binge/purge cycle. Do you have any quick advice on how to stop? Also, my front teeth are very sensitive because of all the stomach acid, do you know of anything that might help? (I'm already using toothpaste and mouthwash for sensitive teeth)
Anonymous asked: do you still get triggered? food, others weight, ect? (if not, when did they stop?)
