    I just signed up with Experience today

    and as I was going through the story section I stumbled across this. I'm a little confused about a couple of things and would like clarification, please. 1: is this about BECOMING anorexic and a support system on how to do so? (No judgment, just honest question) 2: what's an...

    I am 15 years old. Throughout my childhood up

    until I was about 9, I was perfectly happy and content with myself. I had no issues whatsoever. But when I was about 9, I started seeing myself in a different way. I had become aware that I wasn't naturally skinny. My best friend at the time was very petite (and still is) and I...

    I've always had an amazing metabolism

    and it's always been easier for me to lose weight than to gain weight. I'm not sure if anorexia by definition is seeing yourself as overweight even though you aren't. I don't see myself as overweight but I always have to struggle to get food down and maintain an appetite.

    With reluctance, today I threw out my chocolate.

    I realized just knowing it was there in the 3rd drawer down of my dresser was holding me back. I feel so relieved. Why didn't I do this earlier?

    I am brokenhearted even more from my ex

    and I just started to stop eating today. I really love him so much and I am very depressed. I'm in the 140's but I hope or sooner I'll be in the 100's - 110's this summer.

    and eat a small portion of dinner (because of my parents). I drink a liter and a half of water daily. Sometime I'll drink fruit water and give my friends the fruit. Lately when I eat dinner I have the urge to purge... I am in need of an Ana friend. I'm going running tomorrow...

    Does anyone hate the weekends?

    its like all the food is screaming at you when you're sitting on the couch. you can't go in the kitchen to get water without all the sodas staring at you or open the pantry to get a protein bar without the junk food catching your sleeve and pulling you in.

    I've always had a problem with eating since I was about 4, I can't swallow large amounts of food so it takes me longer to eat so i get full very quickly, this is making me slowly anorexic but I don't want to be but I physically cannot. Is anyone the same? 😕
