    Skipping Meals

    2
    I've done it again. I just can't sit for a meal. I napped instead. I wouldn't eat. I couldn't eat. I saw no reason. I made excuses like there's nothing to eat. Or that you want to eat. The problem is I'm not even upset that I didn't eat. Like I'm perfectly okay with not eating. But I can't get better thinking like that.

    Getting Through a Meal

    2
    I can hardly ever eat a full meal anymore. Anything as much as a Turkey Burger can make me sick. Even when I do eat it doesn't sit well. I always look at myself after and think about how fat I look. And because of that I try restricting my food but then I just end up binge eating because of how fatigued I am. It's like a vicious cycle.

    Why is it that there is bias and a lack of support, depending on how long you have had your ed, what ed you have, and how you look? If we all feel pain and feel helpless, we should give a hand to anyone, because we know how it feels. I feel that problems are overshadowed by other problems and so many people never felt heard because of this. As if there is a popularity and norm for how fucked up...

    I'm scared...

    4
    I'm really scared.  I've hated my body since middle school, but I've usually been able to maintain healthy behaviors through that.  But this year, things all the sudden are getting really, really bad.  Two days ago and yesterday, I ate a lot less that I needed to feel full, and I'm scared of how much I enjoyed feeling hungry.  Today, all I had until dinner was a protein bar, frackers, and a...

    I Just Swallowed Half a Bottle of Diet Pills

    Yeah. I'm sick of it. Sick of everything. I'll never love myself. I'll never be free. No one where I live understands. I can't call a crisis center, they'll lock me up if I tell them what I've done. I've got bills. I've got rent. I can't be locked up. This is all I have. I'm ugly and fat and stupid and if I were someone else I'd shove me down the stairs already. And punch me in the face for good...

    Eating through Hurricane Irma

    Irma came to the west coast of Florida where I live. People came and went from staying with me before the storm, during and after. I have some roof damage, but other than that everyone around here is ok. Some people have no electricity. I have been blessed to have that luxury.Here is the point. In times like this we collect food items that do not need to be refigerated. Unfortunately, a lot of...
