I What Would I Say to Anorexia If It Were Sitting Next to Me

    What Would I Say? . . .

    Love yourself from the inside out.  Stop staring at the mirror and believing something that just isn't true.  You have bought into an painful obsession that wasn't yours to purchase. You are holding yourself back from the freedom of being a well, strong person.  Love yourself...

    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?

    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...

    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.

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

    '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...

    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...

    When I was a kid of 7,

    I was a chubby kid. Whatever the reason, I weighed more than I should. I'd never been called fat by my peers (yet), but I went to the doctor for some illness or another and he pointed out that I was overweight. He told me it wasn't my fault, that my parents were to blame for...
