    The past few days I have been restricting in a

    big time way. Like barely eating anything. After 6 years of struggling with this sh*t, it has become such a difficult habit to break. Yesterday was my birthday, and instead of treating myself good (like I had planned), I treated myself terribly and didn't eat all day. Finally...

    I've been eating a lot lately,

    and went from 124 to probably 130 now. And wow, that is taking a huge toll on me. I'm beginning to miss it, miss the feeling of being hungry, missing feeling strong, missing losing a pound every day/other day. I'm honestly a healthy girl. I don't eat a lot of junk, nor do I...

    when you're told you're going to die, unless you eat, one would think the dying girl would eat. but instead, tell the doctors you just head lunch, you can't possible drink that stuff, if i wasn't so full from lunch, sure i'd drink it. you are given the benefit of the doubt...

    Every single day is a struggle.

    I can't look in the mirror without finding so many different flaws and imperfections. I hate myself. I starve myself. I binge and purge. I can't live a day without hating myself and trying to change myself.

    All it took was for one person to say something

    to me years ago, and now I'm stuck with this awful disease. If I could take it all back I would but I can't. I'm always relapsing and it kills me when I see really pretty girls and wish that I looked like them. I have a horrible body image for myself and I'm extremely insecure.
