Insensetive grandpa - March 5th 2016, 09:48 PM

My grandpa is so insesitive. you can see my dogs every bone. And I'm worried about her. Then he calls her anorexic and then says I know your not anorexic because I feed you and you eat. Are you purging your food?.

I know it's a joke but I'm right here and I do purge and starve. And it's not funny. He is insensitive too because I know I am fat and he says shit like oh your so fat are you really going to eat all that?

I just hate it so much and today I am on a strict diet and then he offers me his toast and i took it. But he doesn't understand I'm trying to loose weight and he just comments on if I don't eat or if I eat.

I just am fed up with it.


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Hey Frankie,

I'm sorry you're having to deal with this right now. Thanks for coming to us for some support.

I'm going to advise that you talk to your grandpa about all of this. I know that might be a hard conversation for you to have but I think it's one that needs to be done. I'm sure he doesn't mean to make you feel so bad about yourself and so uncomfortable but he is doing, and he won't know unless you tell him. Maybe he just doesn't realise how this is upsetting you so it would be good to tell him. I'm guessing from what you e said that he doesn't know about your eating disorder but maybe telling him would be an extra source of support for you too. Which is always good. I think having a good support network is vital.

I know this is hard but I know you're a strong person and I k ow you can do this so keep fighting okay? And you know you're always welcome to message me any time.

Love, Jessie

Re: Insensetive grandpa - March 9th 2016, 09:51 PM

Oh he knows. He comments on it all the time. I have told him not to make comments about my weight or food, or anything like that surrounding me and he doesn't anyway. He does what he wants doesn't care who he hurts or upsets. He is set in his ways and won't try to change.

I guess I just need to know how not to let this affect me because he's going to do it.
