    Dear My Worst Enemy

    I want to hate you so badly, but I know you came into my life to show me I need to shift my thoughts and energy or I would lose my life. I believe you came into my life so that when I did recover, I came out more confidence than I've ever had in my life. I let you consume two...

    Dear Mia...

    I used to think i was better than you. I used to think you were just a weak part of me that I could turn on and off at will, that I could use while I needed to get skinny and then stop using forever. But you were so clever. Your ideas were so seductive. You made me think that the...

    What Would I Say to Bulmia If It Were Sitting In the Chair Next to Me?

    If bulimia was in the chair next to you what would you say?  Would you scream, cry, whisper, or shout?  What would you say to Bulimia if it has touched the life of you, your sister, mother, daughter?  It's your chance to get it off your chest!

    I Wish Someone Had Warned Me About You.

    If i could have the chance to speak with Bulimia, I would ask why noone warned me that it would make me ugly, and take complete control over my life.

    Ask why?

    Why you won't come to me. Why you won't appear in my life. Oh, my life is miserable without meeting you. I try to see you, but you never come. :(

    You Promised You Would Save Me

    from my thoughts, from my pain, from my hatred of myself. And you did. I loved you for it, but I hate you even more for it. For taking the way the only hope I ever had of a 'normal' life, for crushing my confidence, my dreams and taking over my world for the past nine years, I...

    Is This Really Still Happening?

    I grew up with a mother who insisted that she was fat and ugly, and no matter how hard she tried, she could not lose weight. And she was terribly depressed for much of my childhood. Because of this I am terrified of gaining weight. I know it's irrational. I know that people CAN...

    I Would Say This to Bulimia

    I hate you for making me feel like I need you. I hate you for stealing my money. I try not to care what you have to say to me but it is hard. I wish I never met you. I wish I never flirted with your ways. I don't actually focus on my weight, I focus on the habits you...

    **** you. You started to creep up in my life

    ever so slowly. Pretty soon you became the most important part(s) of my day. I ******* HATE how you take away my presence when I'm around my friends and family. You take up all the space in my mind. You ruined so many relationships because you needed to be at the forefront...

    I'm not going to dignify you with a *******

    nickname. You are not cute, beautiful, or romantic. You are destroying my life. My relationships. But I can't get rid of you. Even though I know you're slowly killing me.... I just... Can't. *******. Stop.

    My Worst Enemy

    not only have you conquered my life, but you have ill-fated me for the rest of time. I carry a big secret and burden with me every day and even subconciously am haunted by your disgusting spell over me when my nightmares consist of eating too much and not being able to purge it...

    Dear Bulimia,

    It's been a while. Remember that time I wrote about you? In my journal? I remember the beginning of the passage perfectly because that first sentence haunted me for so long afterwards: **I have been throwing up for 90 consecutive days.** And then my mom found it. "MOM! What...
