    Anorexia Or Just Stress?

    Life has been extremely stressful the past week or so, and I haven't really been able to eat properly- at least that's what I think. I'm also facing low self-esteem issues right now... And I recently "recovered" from a self-declared anorexia just a few months ago. I honestly can...

    Food scares me. Food makes me want to cry half the time. I hate food, it makes me hate myself so much more. Food is my own worst enemy next to myself. I hate food, I hate when people make me eat. I just want to be skinny. I don't want to be fat and ugly no more :((
