    I also battle anorexia and bulimia. I am on treatment, but sometimes I really feel like I will never make it. Like it is too hard, and mostly of all, I don't want to get fat..........I would die. I don't want to be a fat girl. I wanna be skinny and beautiful. Why is it so...

    About 4 months ago I weighed 132lbs. It's been harder ever since school started, typically around August to the end of January is when my depression is at it's worst and my borderline personality disorder is at it's most dramatic. I'm afraid or what's going to happen next.
