    And it was terrible. It developed over a

    period of years, years that I remember only perfectionism, anxiety, and self consciousness. I wanted to change myself. At age 10, I went through puberty and became borderline overweight. I was so miserable that I took measures that became drastic by age 11. Until age 14...

    The thought of what I used to look like

    and be like bother me everyday. I am in therapy for it and I don't think anything will help. I look normal again but it's weird remembering how things used to fit me and how I used to look back then

    I can now honestly say I'm fully recovered from

    anorexia, bulimia and selfharm. I have had these problems since I was in P6 at school so around 10 years old. I'm now 17, the last 7 years have been tough. In and out of hospitals, suicide attempts, scars that will be there forever. I set up my Instagram and twitter last summer...

    I'm 19, 4'11 ft tall

    and 104.5 pounds it ranges from 108.7-103.4 at times. I don't know how to keep dropping weight. I don't even know what to do anymore at this point. I restrict what I eat and try to make sure that I eat. On a good day I'll have two meals. I try my hardest to even keep my food...

    It was in 6th grade. At first,

    it started because I was too stubborn to eat what my aunt and uncle would feed me. After a while, it was a way of punishing myself. I didn't have any friends at school, and my family hated me. I remember being taken to the doctor and told to "eat anything, healthy or not". They...
