    Hello Anorexia

    At one point in my life, I thought I had Anorexia. I was obsessed with losing weight and couldn't eat for a month because anything I ate, even an apple, later made me feel really guilty. Thinking of food just made me want to vomit. I was, and still am, very much overweight and I...

    My Message To Anorexia (i'm Rather A Gourmet)

    Hi, anorexia!   I'd like to tell you just two things: -Better obese than obsess  -And now, a traditional Polish compliment I was once flattered with: "There is never too much of a body you love"   -The fact, dear anorexia, is that I'm BIG, outside as...

    What Would You Say to Anorexia?

    What would you say to anorexia if it were sitting next to you?  Would you scream, cry, whisper, yell?  If anorexia has touched the life of you, your sister, mother, daughter....what would you say?

    'Thankyou'

    I would thank her, because I am convinced that anorexia helped me to get through some very difficult times. She gave me something to concentrate and fixate on, gave me an element of control when everything else was chaotic.  I can't know for sure now, but I think without her...

    I Never Thought I Could Hate Something So Much...

     If Anorexia was sitting next to me I would first slap it across the face, and then proceed with this: I hate you, more than I ever thought I could hate something. You took over my life for years, you almost killed my loved ones. You set a standard over me that I was never...

    Dear Ana

    You entered my life at a time in which I had no control and you took advantage.  You inhabited my life and left me rendered silent, tied up and gagged in the back seat, helplessly watching as I developed a personality and way of acting that was alien to me and those around...

    Please Eat

    You are beautiful even you have a litte but of fat. Not worth it to starve yourself. Food is wonderful to eat. Just eat in moderate. Work out to burn fat. We are human. We can't survive without food or water.
