    I Feel Really Guilty When I Eat Supper.

    I ate supper, and I just feel ugly and fat and I want to go throw it up, but I can't because that is bad for me and I already deal with self harm, I do not want to have to deal with a eating disorder as well. So I will sit here. Try to be as content with life as I possibly can be...

    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...

    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...

    What The Heck Is Wrong With Me...

    I've been starving myself for two weeks now. This problem began back in 8th grade, and I dropped from a 12 year old at 5'2" and 130 pounds to a 13-14 year old at 5'4" and 95 pounds, very quickly. I lost my period for 3 months, and I'm quite certain this was an eating disorder...

    I don't like to think

    where this could possibly lead but I find it hard to eat in general unless it's that time when I must eat. I have to eat in small portions or I can't finish my food. Sometimes I can't even look at it...but I really like it sometimes. I just can't eat like I used to
