Writing a song about ED and need your help - January 6th 2017, 08:36 PM

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.

I am writing a song about Eating disorders and need help. I have come up with words and phrases that describe me eating disorder and I would like it if you guys could give me words or sentences that describe your eating disorder. It would really help. I will of course put them to lyrics and into my own words. Then I'll post it here.


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

I will write a list that comes to mind from my experiences:

ashamed
want to open up about it but cant
scared to eat and be fat but also scared to not eat and get sick
Trapped, alone. afraid
Eating seems so natural for most people, why is it such a struggle for me?
keeping secret that's killing me but if I said it, people wont understand
A bad person that deserves punishment (although maybe that's more of a self harm thought?)
Some days spent hours looking in the mirror at how ugly I am, other days avoiding mirrors because of how ugly I am
Lying and putting on a face
saying I am not hungry when I really am
Skipping meals even though I'm hungry and emotional eating when I'm not hungry!
trapped in this body and this existence-get me out of here!
When people say I seem quiet and they think something is wrong but I laugh it off and wait for them to leave the room
telling people I am fat and my stomach looks like a mountain and them laughing at me and saying "no you're not. Quit complaining"
having a meltdown on the train because I look fatter when I sit down than when I stand up.
When it is crowded and everyone is looking at me and my body is visible. I just want to hide!
