    This is my goal. Having been recovering from

    anorexia binge-purge subtype I've really just wanted to have my life fall into place. While in treatment you really work hard to erase your mind from putting food into categories such as good or bad. Because then when you eat a good food you reinforce that you're good and the...

    This feeling is starting to trouble me

    and I wonder if I am the only one. This feeling comes out of no where that's why I am beginning to question it more than I ever did before. I could be sitting eating or doing anything else and my mood changes completely. I feel a great deal of pain, physical and emotional...

    I'm always trying new things, my most recent was intermittant fasting, fasting for 24 hours. I just want to feel normal and healthy, to not think about how, when and what to eat all the time. Over the years it has taken over my life, I want to be healthy and not have this bad...

    Health, to me, is more

    than the absence of sickness. Sicknesses or injury can happen, but even with them, we can be generally healthy, and without them, we still could still be unhealthy. To put it another way, I think that our physical and emotional health are inter-related. Not exactly codependent...

    But it wont happen. Society lost compassion.

    They choose profit over unity. That kills us. We care too much. And get broken. But they say too bad. And refuse to fix anything. Rankings. http://youtu.be/T8UqdPKbpWM http://youtu.be/ZPHSXUS0_1c
