fighting an eating disorder is really brave, and so if no one has told you today, or this week, or at all, i think you’re really brave. you’re eating despite everything telling you not to, you’re remaining sedentary despite everything telling you to get up and move, and for you to have that kind of trust, that faith, to believe that what you’re hearing in your head is a lie, and you’re gonna ignore it, that takes guts. you’re really brave.
Here’s to a week for the unconventional before and after photos, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For most of my life, I’ve been heavier, and consequently shamed and belittled for my weight. When I started college, however, I weighed 103 pounds, was eating 400-600 calories a day, doing about 90 minutes of cardio daily, and most importantly, I was anorexic. I was 15 pounds underweight, but no one thought to say anything because they were too busy applauding me for my unnatural weight loss. This is me calling them out. This is my telling them they were wrong. This is me thanking my real life and tumblr friends for everything they done to get me to the wonderful place I am today. So fuck you traditional pictures of “healthy”, I may be fat, but I beat my eating disorder.
It’s incredibly sad this had to be said at all but here you go SJWs. Here’s the truth.
My rights don’t end where your feelings begin.

Can a sister get a ‘HELL FUCKIN YEAH!’ For my buddy Scott, who protected a woman from her abusive ex! Scott was in the hospital for 8 days! The Asshat attacked him with a box cutter. Nose cut 3/4”, stabbed in the arm (16 stitches), the slash across his chest went through to his left lung puncturing it (30 staples)… He is much better now, but he has a lot of nerve damage across his chest and forearm where he was stabbed. He’s got a long way to go. Let’s see how many reblogs/RTs we can get for this BAMF!
I love this so much. So often you hear that people just become bystanders to stuff like this and they defend their lack of action as self preservation…way I see it, if you can’t bring yourself to help a fellow person in a situation like that then you’re already dead.
friendly reminder that you don’t have to be an emotionless perfect recovery warrior and that it’s okay to mess up and struggle and have slips, recovery is not a straight line and that’s okay; it doesn’t make you any less of a person or a warrior and i still love you
gonna feel guilty for giving into ed
gonna feel guilty for not giving into ed
gonna feel guilty either way
so might as well choose what’s going to benefit recovery
RECOVERY ALWAYS (seriously though)
Gain weight triggered
Loose weight triggered
Stay the same weight triggered
triggered but keep fighting
don’t let tumblr make you believe that
-smoking is cool
-being a narcissistic bitch is acceptable
-trusting nobody is healthy
-starving yourself will make you beautiful
-hating everybody is okay
- being mentally sick makes you more interesting
- hating yourself is cool
- belonging to a majority makes you a bad person
- you are not allowed to feel bad about your body
- you have to accept everyone despite their toxic views
just because you dont break skin or use a razor doesnt mean it cant be self harm
just because they never hit you doesnt mean it cant be an abusive relationship
just because you can communicate in some circles doesnt mean you cant have anxiety or socializing issues
just because you have a good day doesnt mean you cant have depression
Do not let your perception of how your struggle should be silence you. Your problems are real and they deserve attention.
