Hey Cassidy,

I'm really glad you've seeked out help from us, Cassidy. No matter how awkward a question feels, we're here to help.

Constipation is a common side effect of anorexia. It's just one of the few gastrointestinal problems that can arise with anorexia. The constipation is caused by the slowing down of things going through your body, causing your body to take longer to digest because of not having as much to do so with. It's complicated, and very annoying. Have you been talking to somebody in your life about getting better? You won't have to worry about this, along with all of the psychological and emotional effects of anorexia.

Good luck, we're here for you!

Haha ... Well yeah. If you don't eat right, you get constipated. It's a common side effect. It's kinda an awkward one... When I started eating right again I was like " WOAH? Where is all this crap coming from!?" haha yeah...

I wanna fly. So I do gymnastics instead.

I'll just keep holding on to what i believe and oh I believe in you. Give me the strength for the fight and the heart to believe cause I've got to believe in you. I feel so alive.
