I'm a college student that has battled short but obvious periods of both depression and anorexia/bulimia...the program that i'm in focuses a lot on body image...everyone except one or two people in my program are stick thin and obssesed with exercise...going to class everyday and seeing these people and hearing others being judged based on their weight just reminds me of how easily i could go back to having obssessive thoughts...my so called friends stopped hanging out with me because i told them i was depressed...then i started gaining weight and a lot of them are now ignoring me. I feel like i'm in this bubble...i'm lonely, depressed even more and feel like everyone is my enemy...why do we all assume that being thin makes us happy? when i was skinny i was depressed too. my friends only commented on hoe fantastic i look...now they say nothing, i barely talk to them. now i feel like everyone is only seeing my weight and not me. does anyone else experience this or is it just me?
