Default Is anybody else attracted to the self mutilation in becoming skeletal

Even before my depression started, I was always attracted to self mutilation.
When I got my ED, I became obsessed with not becoming thin but being skeletal. I want to weigh nothing because I feel like I am nothing.
Does anybody else feel like this? Is anybody else obsessively attracted to the wonder that is the skeleton showing?

I can't deny that I have felt like this. It was not long after becoming sick in my ED that I wanted to become skeletal. But on the other hand it also became a suicidal dream for me.
But I know the joy when bones start to show through skin, the obsession of beeing just bones - so pure and delicate.
So yeah, I can relate.
But it's a dangerous path to go down, and I really wish you'd stop yourself from starving like that.

I know exactly what you mean. I have an eating disorder due to reactive depression and all I want is to see my bones showing through my skin.

I'm trying so hard to start eating again but every time I eat anything i just take a hold of my wrists feeling the bones poking through or brush my hands over my hips or ribs to feel the bones protruding. It feels amazing to see my bones under my skin. You really aren't alone. My doctors keep telling me that eating disorders are very common and that I need to start eating regularly without thinking about putting weight on but I really can't stop picturing the perfect image of just looking so skeletal. Being thin would be perfect.

If you ever need to speak about this feeling, it would be nice to know that I'm not the only person feeling this so please talk to me, I think it could help both of us.

Love Ella x
