Talking Update - December 21st 2010, 02:56 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, 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.

(It does talk about SH scars at one point, which is why I labeled it.. Just in case.)

Alright, so my mom caught me purging on Sunday. I was really resentful for a while, but now I'm thinking it might not be such a bad thing that she knows. After all, I haven't done it since. (She made me promise I'd quit, and I really hate breaking promises.)

The problem is, I have constant reminders of why I've been doing this. Not only do I have stretch marks on my thighs from where I was overweight as a child, I have scars from self-harming that I had carved to say "FAT" on my thigh as well. It's become very difficult to keep myself going in recovery because of this. So what I've thought about doing is taking a pen and turning "FAT" into "F.A.T." to stand for "Forget About Thin." What do you guys think?

That's a wonderful idea, and I'm so glad you've managed to not purge in a while ,simply by keeping a promise to your mother. That's amazing, well done <3


PM me anytime, I love helping people and will do my best to help you <3
