Unhappy im terrified. - August 3rd 2010, 04:11 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

so i had this dream a couple night ago that i was in a corner of a dark room just holding a knife in my hand. and you know that feeling when you know you're thinking even though you're dreaming? well i thought i was going to use it to cut myself on my leg or arm or something.
but instead i took it to my stomach and cut off all my fat, and then i took it to my arms and legs and cut off all my fat. i'm overweight, yes, but not by much. but i just started cutting it all off my body, and then soon i was crying, and i thought i was sad or upset, but once all the fat was gone from my body, i started laughing and smiling, and i was happy.

i can't get that dream out of my mind...
i'm scared to sleep now.
but even more, i'm scared to eat.
i'm scared to take food in because of this dream.

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

I know how you feel and want you to know that you are not alone. You are a beautiful person and it is so hard to struggle with your body image. I still struggle with it to this day, but have gotten progressively better with my eating disorder. If you ever need someone to talk to please don't hesitate. If you can't sleep at night send me a message and I can try my best to put your mind at ease. Just make it a point to look at yourself once a day and tell yourself that you ARE beautiful, because you are and you deserve that. Are you seeing a therapist or somebody that you can confide in with your fears? Sometimes letting it out to them can help, because they understand things much more deeply. Please be strong dear!
