    The Fear And The Dread

    I hate food. I love food. The constant struggle of my life. Many lives, perhaps, and not just those of the eating disordered.  I hate food because I love it and I want to eat it, but I can't. If I do, I purge to assuage the inevitable guilt and possible weight gain.  So...

    Who Needs Food?

    I used to love food; I relish the days when my friends and I would plan days in which we would just go out for dinner and just pig out on everything that we ordered. But the past is in the past, and food is just not that important to me anymore. The smell of it makes my stomach...

    I Hate Eating.

    Just the thought of food is gross. You put a solid in your mouth and chew till its mush and swallow. It's nasty. And the fact the it makes you fat is worth. I don't want to eat. I want to be skinny. I want to be accepted. I want to see my ribs for once and I want to have a space...

    It'S Not Because I'M Fat.

    It's because I don't want to be. I don't eat lunch at school and I eat little dinner, no breakfast. I'm 108 pounds. I now I'm not fat. But people always tell me I'm going to be. I need to prove them completely wrong. I don't want to eat. I can't help it. I just don't want to.
