Hi - December 22nd 2018, 11:48 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.

My name is Aurora and yes my mom named me after Sleeping Beauty. Everyone calls me Rory or Tutu though. I have been doing Ballet since the age of 4 and I will be turning 15 on Christmas day. I am from Ontario, Canada but attend school at one of the best Ballet schools in the country in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States so the majority of the year I am away from my mom and that is hard. Other than Ballet I also like music which is mostly Pop music. At the age of 11 I started to struggle really hard with my body image and started not eating to stay really thin. It got out of control to the point I had to go into the ED Unit for adolescents at the hospital. From the age of 11 to the age of 13 I was in that unit 3 times. I have been dealing with my ED better since my last trip to the hospital when I was 13 but it is still very difficult and I check my weight everyday and count calories but I do not starve myself anymore. I am back for holidays with my mom which makes things easier but it gets harder when I have to go back to school. I do have dorm advisers that watch us but it is not the same. I spend most of my time when I am at school in the dance studio practicing which is great for me because it is burning calories. The rest of the time I am studying my other 4 regular subjects. So I guess I checked out this place as a check in point if I am ever struggling and need someone to chat with that may be going through an ED difficulty like myself or if anyone is going through a rough time I have been there as well and am willing to listen. So that is about it in a nutshell about me.

Hey Rory,

Your Friend,

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.
