Back to my old habits :/ - December 19th 2015, 05:14 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Soo, I haven't gone long at all with eating right. Like how I should. But I haven't been fully starving myself! Except today... I starved myself and purged several times and I just want to get up and exercise until I pass out. I am tired of looking at my ugly self. I need to lose weight. I need too. I am too ugly, I can't stand myself. So these thoughts are coming back and I just feel like I HAVE too. I'll just get severely dehydrated again and end up in the hospital costing my parents a bunch of money that they don't have. Ugh, I'm so selfish. I wish I could leave my family and disappear and they wouldn't notice. Make all of their lives better! Ughhhh, I feel like I need to be purging again! I hate that word

Kaliope., I am sorry that you feel this way, I really am. Don't disappear, you can get through this. I think I already posted to your other post, so maybe you can read that. But I'd just like to remind you that you are beautiful, valued and a wonderful person. I know that there are ways that you can become healthy and happy. I really hope you'll considering finding a counsellor/therapist who can help you work through your struggles. Don't forget that we're all here to support you too

Hi there my love.

I'm sorry you are going through this right now, it sounds really tough but I. So happy that you're reaching out for some support and advice.

Firstly, beauty isn't about weight. It's about a persons soul and what's inside. I don't know whether you're overweight or not but even if you were, starving, restricting and purging isn't the best or right way to go around losing weight and you don't deserve to put your beautiful body through that. Have you thought about seeing a dietitian or an eating disorder specialist? They may be really able to help you with all this and help you with returning to a healthy balanced diet and eating routines. Scary thought I know but if it might help then it may well be worth it you know?

Someone once said in an ed support group I went too, that food is a right, not a privilege.mand it's true. Having and eating food is a human right. You deserve food and you need it to hel with your energy, things like getting the right vitamins and minerals and food groups and you need it because if you don't eat then it will have a negative impact on your mental health. Just remember that, that it's a right. A human need.

I know this is all really hard for you but you can beat it and get through to the other side. It's gunna be scary at times and there will be points where you want to give in but that's when you need to remind yourself why you were fighting the n the first place.

Please message me if you need anything and look after yourself.
Hopes and wishes,

"Only in the dark, can you see the stars..."
