I don't spend a lot of time in the eating disorders support group as I am not in the same place as most of those who are suffering. A 27-year-old woman died and there is a lot of anger and grief and confusion over there. I do have to say that many of these young women are angry at other people for this poor woman's death. I am not being callous when I say that no one ever got in the way of my wanting to get help. If I thought I was in big trouble I called 911 and didn't care who thought it wasn't necessary. I wish that many of those young women could actually think 'hey, this might be me one day and I need to DO something right now'.... so many deaths in that community. I'm venting a bit here but at some point we have to rise up and take responsibility. Stop blaming and start doing. Our lives are not statistics, we are not casualties as we still live and breathe, we only have RIGHT NOW! So many young women dying and for what? Self hatred running so rampant that we can't see straight? It doesn't make any sense. God help us all. Help us SEE what is right in front of us. Not another bottle, another shot, another day of not eating, another day of bingeing and purging. Help us SEE the hand that is in front of us always. Thanks for reading this. Namaste, shanti, om..... amen
