    Well this might not be the right topic

    for me because I was anorexic and bulimic for years. But I remember when I first started out I wanted to be anorexic. Like it was some prize. But then I found out it wasn't. I don't regret it at all. In fact I miss it! I'm recovered now. Almost two years. I still struggle. But I...

    I miss it when I used to be.

    .. I still skip meals, but not at all like I used to. I think about going back to doing it everyday. Lately I have been thinking more than ever... And in the past week I have averaged like a meal or less... I really want to go back to skipping days worth of food, I felt better...

    Okay so here's the deal.

    I don't want a buddy really... More like a coach or mentor or instructor. I'm not asking for someone to give me a disease, considering I already fast and purge and all of that horrible stuff. I just need someone to guide me and tell me what to do and be strict with me. I NEED to...

    An eating disorder should not be something you

    want. When I had anorexia, I did things that brought me closer to dying every day for two years. Recovery made me appreciate my life and you all should flaunt your individuality too.

    you want to be thin,

    but not anorexic. anorexic people have mental illness, no matter how thin they are they will always think that they are fat. thus no happiness and satisfaction for their body image. thats depressing

    I didn't eat for a few days

    because I'm too poor to afford groceries, so I lost four pounds. I was so happy. But then, I had a can of soup and gained it all back. I felt awful...I'm 170 pounds and with my illness I'm not supposed to be this heavy...I'm disgusted...
