I guess i was just commenting on the mixed signals western society sends us. Corpulence is regarded as a repulsive condition yet underweight people are often shunned with labels such anorexic or weak. I can easily see how one who is already predisposed to one of these disorders could get easily confused!

One of my friends was anorexic. It was horrible, for her, for her family, for her friends, and especially for me, her best friend. She wouldn't fucking eat. You need to eat to live. She got so skinny so fast. It really destroyed her for months. It destroyed our friendship along with it. During lunch she'd sit there picking daintily at the lettuce, not eating anything, and I had to keep myself from leaping on the plastic cafeteria table and literally shoving food down her throat. I didn't care if she choked, just that the food touched her tongue.

Eat, eat dammit!

To me, eating had the potential to make everything better. Food was almost symbolic; if she just freaking ate, everything would go back the way it was. We could be close friends again. We never have been the same, though, because life is just unfair like that. She took tons of anti-depressents and slowly but surely recovered. We're friends again, of course, and she's back to healthy weight (took a year), but it's not the same.

Eating disorders suck. And not for the people with the disorder, they don't even care, that's how they developed the disorder in the first place. For people who care around them. Keep eating people, please.

Back in middle school, when I was 12-13, I was all skin and bones. I was a small girl too. Barely five feet and 80 pounds. There were those who would point to me and my group of friends (also my size) and giggle at us, calling us aneroxic. Honestly, it wasn't our fault, we just couldn't gain any weight. One of my friends were even prescribed weight gaining pills and I ate healthy. II was convinced that the obnoxious girls were jealous. Frankly, it irked me that people just assume some Asian girls are aneroxic just because its hard to gain weight. We all eat.

Eventually puberty kicked in and now I'm slender/normal. I love it. Being skinny was fun but being my weight is even better.


Mmm this happened to me too, so I guess it really is in my genes ^^;; I've been pretty skinny all my life, so people always assume I have some sort of eating disorder. I eat, but I don't really gain weight at all, still 5'3 and 85-90 pounds. A lot of the people I meet tell me they want to be as skinny as I am and ask me what I do, even downright accuse me of aneroxia and bulimia and of not telling them the truth because I don't want to "share" my skinniness. But being skinny isn't all that great, it makes the person look like a walking skeleton. It's much better to look and be a normal weight. Unless it's genetics, then it can't be helped. As for those with eating disorders, I understand the factors that might influence them into it, but that's still no excuse to give in it.

Bleh, society is so confusing sometimes...

.....my sister's bulimic.....she's been bulimic for about the past five years. at first she became vegetarian, and since we usually have meals that have a lot of meat, she wouldn't eat them so my parents bought her healthy foods that she could eat. then she started working out every day, but that didn't last for very long. she now eats a bunch of candy and junk food and throws everything up. it's quite disgusting because she'll throw up in bottles and cups(not cups anymore though). we've tried to take her to a psychologist to get help, but she stopped going to them because she doesn't like talking about her feelings openly like that. my parents and her have gotten into a lot of arguments because of her problem, but she still persists.

she used to cut out pictures of skinny people and paste them into notebooks and write about how fat she is and how skinny she needs to be. she's 23 years old, and she looks like she's 12 because she doesn't eat the right foods to help her grow. her room is loaded with candy and junk food and she hides her bottles everywhere. she told my mom that she thinks she's fat, but there's definitely more than just that. that's a common misconception that all people with ed's think that they're fat. they may claim that, but it's not always true. it's usually perfectionists who feel that they have no control over their lives, so the only thing they can control is what goes in and out of their bodies.

one of the worst things you can do is try to convince them to eat. it DOESN'T work, trust me, we've tried it with my sister and i've also read about it. also you shouldn't get mad at them for what they do, you can't just say stuff like, "why don't you eat anything?! EAT goddamnit!!" *stuff food in face* when you don't eat and throw up(also when you exercise) your brain gives off endorphines which makes your body feel good. people with ed's like this feeling so they keep it up. eventually, your brain won't produces the endorphines... so please people, don't just think an eating disorder can be cured automatically by telling them to stop, giving them food, and/or sending them to a shrink, it takes time, and the will of the person to want to end it. and they're NOT crazy, they just need help...

purging is the same thing as throwing up. binging is eating so much food that you feel like you can throw up, then you purge

you probably have a high metabolism.to put it simply, when people with a low metabolism eat, they gain more weight in comparison to someone with a high metabolism.

I've been called bulimic before. But I'm not. Really.
I just eat a lot. I don't throw it back up.
