:D I suffered from Anorexia for many years...not sure where...or when...or why...it all started...but I think it is because I have always felt so small and insignificant...and it was the only way I could control my world and the life around me!!!!!...1994 was my worst time...I was down to about 95lbs...Someone in my family had taken a picture of me...And when I saw it...I could not believe my eyes...I looked awful...just like skin and bone...And that was when I started to change my way of looking and feeling and thinking about myself...it has only been in the last five years that I have somehow come out of this awful thing...I am about 125lbs now...but there are days when my mind keeps telling me I am too fat!!!!!...but I know that I am not fat!!!!...And I have to fight with my mind and tell myself that I must eat to stay alive...And for those who have not been as fortunate as me in the road to recovery...All I can say is that I have come to be at peace with who I am and Who God made me!...and if no one else likes me...Well...God loves me...and that is all that counts in my book!!!!!!...We are very special...Believe it!

Sweets, congratulations on overcoming Anorexia to the point of gaining some weight. That is quite an accomplishment. I know that this is a challenge. I did a lot of research on eating disorders when i was in college. I know it is very difficult to overcome. You are among the lucky ones, and i know you know that because you are aware of those who weren't. And, you have some good things to say. I know because I've read your posts. You are a likeable person. Never fear, because people do like you for you.

hey cute_sway,

i understand what you are saying but maybe you should tell ur parents. they always react differently when they know. i told my mom and we got help together and now since i threw up so much i gain weight so easily and sometimes i do wanna go in the bathroom after i eat but knowing that my mom helped me get through that i call her and she talks me out of it!!! you should try it.

Default Me too!!

I've had an eating disorder for over 4 years. It comes and goes. Sometimes it's worse then others. But I'm not sure there is a way to cure it .

strippergurl18, I think there is hope to heal from this. Talk to someone and get their support and help. That is what I'm reading in these forums. When they told this person or that, is when they started to get help.

Hello Again...:-) Haven't been here in awhile...my heart goes out to you girls...it took me many many years to overcome in this area...eating...not eating...the feeling of always looking and feeling so fat...and with all the music and movie stars and the feelings that all of this gives off...the look...the feel...every thing...my story started many years ago...with a young model named "Twiggy" of all things...but over this last five years I have come to believe that I am the only me that there will ever be on planet earth...there is no one else like me...I still have to fight with those awful thoughts in my head that I am fat...but at least now they don't control me...but it has been a long hard road to get where I am today...and constantly telling myself...I am beautiful...I am not fat...I am not ugly!...'cause I was abused and all that crap too!...and it is awful what people can imagine to do to another person in their human heart...And if you can somehow find it within yourself to forgive...that is a most wonderful starting place...Believe me it is!...And know that you are who you are...And you are worth being loved and respected...and cherished...and if any of you ladies or girls ever want to talk to me...just send me an email...and I will talk!...Never quit or give up!!!!... :o Donna
