Just like we are afraid for you to know how deep our insecurities are, we are also afraid for you to know the real us. We know that starving, binging, and purging are wrong, but we need you to understand our hurts so you can encourage us.
As much as we try to hold in our feelings and the negative inner thoughts sometimes they get the best of us. We are struggling to discover who we are inside. The more you understand about the way our mind works the better equipped you will be to help us.
Just like an alcoholic struggles to stop drinking we struggle to stop self-destructive patterns. Sometimes or often we need extra help. Maybe from a counselor or treatment facility. Sometimes eating in public or in front of a new person is scary so please get to know us when food is not present first.
Eating disorders have taught us to isolate ourselves. Sometimes jumping into a relationship for the long haul can be hard because we still need some alone time.

Anorexia kills your sex drive. In order to do so, you have to have a tight set of rules. You want to hang out during her workout time. When I was sick, I worked out an hour and a half a day, seven days a week. When I was in college, it all went to hell.

I was already scheduling him around classes, studying and my sorority activities oh, hi, stereotype number 86 for white girls with ED! He wanted to hang out and watch TV for hours at a time or hang out and drink for hours at a time, and neither watching TV nor drinking burned any calories at all. She hates herself, and you love her. This is the kicker.
When I hated myself, it was really hard for me to understand why anybody could love me, think I was beautiful, want to be around me.

He had to have loved me to put up with my bizarre behavior and mood swings and increasingly sickly appearance.
Does that sound fun?
