one day, you will stop wishing you’d been the sickest. you will stop hearing sad stories of failing health and hospitalizations and treatments and feeling jealousy. you will stop pining for the illness you could have had.
one day, you will hear these stories, and you will think, ‘thank god that didn’t happen to me. thank god i am alive and well and my body is functioning again.’
hold out for that day.
"Anorexia isn’t a joke. Anorexia isn’t posting pictures of girls with “thigh gaps”. Anorexia isn’t making countless text posts about how you wish you hadn’t eaten. Anorexia isn’t making hundreds of suicidal threats per month on twitter. Anorexia isn’t getting attention. Anorexia isn’t not eating. It’s funny, all the people who claim to have anorexia and saying they haven’t eaten, when truly, they’re completely full; feeding off all the attention they attract with their stunts and claims. Anorexia is an illness. Anorexia isn’t a competition of whose been in the hospital the most times. It isn’t a ticket to sympathy. It isn’t a tag on tumblr. True anorexia is a toxic, life-devouring illness. You’re starving in body but also in soul. Anorexia feeds on your heart, dreams and passion until you’re a shadow. Anorexia isn’t weighing 75 lbs. you could weigh 500 lbs and be a horrifyingly self-abusive anorexic; even more so than someone who weighs 100 lbs. It isn’t a physical condition, it’s a mental one. It’s one people don’t show; on the Internet, on their face, or in their words. It’s a haunting, consuming ILLNESS. Not a phase, fad or fashion.”
This is just too perfect."

"No relationship is ever a waste of your time. If it didn’t bring you what you want, it taught you what you didn’t want."
"There is nothing beautiful, truthful, friendly or worthwhile about it. Anorexia is destroying and heartless. A disorder without logic."

EATING DISORDERS ARE MENTAL ILLNESSES.
MENTAL. AS IN, BRAIN.
EATING DISORDERS ARE IN YOUR BRAIN.
NOT IN YOUR TUMMY OR YOUR ARMS OR YOUR THIGHS.
CUT THE BULLSHIT.

Nothing will EVER be good enough for ED.
Don’t try to please something that will never be satisfied.
Most accurate post I’ve ever read.

People from all walks of life can and do suffer from eating disorders. EDs do not discriminate based on gender, age, race, class, background, or sexual orientation–they are not a “teenage girl’s disease” as some stereotypes say. About 50% of all people in the US either know someone or have been personally affected by eating disorders. This disease can affect anyone. Men make up at least 15% of all people who suffer from eating disorders.
