    I will not say "I used to be anorexic". That would be a false statement, once anorexia takes over, you will always be anorexic, the thoughts will always be in the back of your head. I am a survivor of anorexia I will say. When I became anorexic, it was just an extreme diet to...

    I have been having eating disorders

    for more then ten years, which isnt that uncommon. But I'm a guy. Beeing male and having eating disorders makes everyday life complicated in a different way, as a guy people expect you to want to eat lots and be "manly". I just want to be thin. I hate it.

    pounds. I've found anorexia so hard but recently I've been a lot better. I've got my weight upto where I am and I'm feeling a lot healthier. Obviously I have my bad days, but it's too be expected. Ultimately I think I'm finally beginning to win my battle.
