In Reply to: Why don't we all sit down and think about the real problems before mentioning food/weight AGAIN! (This is for ALL of you out there & contains my story... read through the rant to get to the story!) posted by Dingo on February 11, 2000 at 10:06:26:
Personally, I don't know how you did it. You said you 'discovered' yourself. I have discovered myself and I am not any better. Maybe you can't relate because you started when you were seventeen and I am eighteen and have been doing it for seven and a half years.
I don't know if it was age, but my problems were only a food thing to begin with. I am anorexia and bulimic and altough I can easily fight the physical aspects, the other things that come with my EDs are so much harder. I grew up with this so its more to me thatn a problem. I was my best friend and it still is even though I miss it. IT really is like a friend even when its gone you still miss it and long for it. And that's what I am having trouble with, I want it back. It almost harder facing myself and the world without it than doing it cold chicken as I am doing now.
I didn't come to this web site to help girls know how to do it, I can to hear advice and maybe find someone who relates and that can appreciate what I am going through.
