Dear ED Community,
I'd really love to find more people here in the community that I can relate to and actually talk to and interact with.
It's just so gosh damn lonely going through this stuff all over again on my own...😵
These are just a few vauge things about me dot pointed below....
So please leave a comment or message me and say hi if you find any of these things relavent to you as well and get my feels 🙏
(p.s you absolutely do not need to be all or even most of these things)
Been hospitalised not for only ED reasons, but also for mental health reasons too.
Didn't develop your ED or it hadn't impacted you life hard enough for you to notice until around 18yrs old
Are in your early to late 20's
Are in a situation where you're living with family or a loved one and it makes your ED and/or weightloss choices very difficult and very stressful
Health has been an absolute ship wreck because of your ED
Have been both in recovery before, or are weight restored, or experiencing relapse, and or gone between all of the 3
Have some form of permanent or long term physical health problems/damage, caused by ED behaviours
Have at some point had a bad episode or history with your ED where you've been dangerously underweight, or doing other ED related things like excessively purging etc, that put your life and health in danger
Your ED affected so many family members and loved ones so much that you're now often terrified and stressed out about potentially putting them through it again despite your own struggle
Often use your ED behaviours to cope with things, sometimes without even noticing
In your life you've both been at a weight too high for your health, and also been an unhealthy underweight
You'd only just intended on losing a bit of weight then stopping but now you've gone too far and cant turn back
* PLEASE NOTE *
I am not in recovery currently, so much of what I post that is ED related might likely be what you'd like to avoid in early stage recovery.
You're recovery is very important, and I'll always support and help others push for it because it is achievable. But as someone that also has an ED, I cannot promise to never be triggering.
Let's all just try to help each other stay as safe as possible during this struggle...especially in times when being self destructive almost cannot be helped ❤
