Yea.......thats Life

How many guys do u know who have an eating disorder. Let me rephrase that, how many straight guys do u know who have an eating disorder? I am one. Life is really hard! I'm always in this constant hole and I can't get out! And I'm madly in love with a girl who doesn't feel the same way about me. Then u add the stress to my life and it turns my entire life upside down! Hope u all can talk with me about it. I cant talk to my friennds about it. I'm not letting it define who I am as a person!

Oh my god we have the exact same situation

Feeling like you're all alone in something is just the worst feeling in the world! I know it helped me loads to read other people's stories about how they were dealing with the same things as I am. But you shouldn't worry, like some of the others who have commented says, there are other straight guys with eating disorders! I know at least two in my social circle! So you're definitely not alone! If you ever want to talk, feel free to drop me a message =)

Hi. I know straight guys with eating disorders. you are not alone. :) Maybe you can find a support group for people with ED's- I go to a couple, one is run by a therapist every other saturday & it is free, it really helps to get with others who have the same issues.

i think it's harder for men to say they have an eating disorder, because our society throws it in our face that this is a female issue. Even admitting it hear you should be proud of, i hope you get the help you need. I'm not a guy but if you ever want to dicuss it feel free to contact me, i have dealt with both anorexia and bulimia, and at 45 sadly the anorexia is slowly rearing its ugly face again. Hang in there!!

i'd like to take the time to respond to this story and talk with you about it all you would like. i'm not the kind of person that is going to deny a "friend", and i hope you will feel comfort in our conversing. :)<br />
