and i said to my body. softly. ‘i want to be your friend.’ it took a long breath. and replied, ‘i have been waiting my whole life for this.’

Let’s get something straight:

Nobody admires you for being anorexic,
That’s just the voice in your head.
They will not applaud you,
Or think of you as ‘controlled’, or
‘tragically beautiful’.
They will not envy you,
They do not see your slow suicide
As admirable.

Anorexia does not make you special,
Different or unique.
Your laughter, your passions,
Your smile, are why people love you.
They do not love anorexia,
They love you, and though the voice says
Without it you are nothing.
I promise, without anorexia
You are everything.

Recovery is a choice,
And it means you have to fight.
Eat, even when anorexia is screaming
At you to stop.
Recovery is learning,
That you are admirable without being thin,
That you are interesting without anorexia,
That you are worth more than a life
With a demon in your head, who
Wants to kill you.
You are perfect, and you do not
Need this disease, to make you
Feel worthy of life.

Please, do not
Put your trust in Anorexia Nervosa,
You are worth
So much more.

A reminder to all sufferers. (via rediscoveryandrecovery)

Anonymous: How are you :)? X

I’m very well, thank you. How are you?

Yes, you should eat. You should always eat. No more of this sitting around for an hour with your cup of coffee trying to decide. You should always eat. There is never a time when skipping a meal is the right answer. Go eat, because you need to. Go eat, because you have a life to live.

Anonymous: What's foods do you try and steer clear from? Also, do you eat dairy?

I’d avoid things with added sugar in them. Or just sugar in general - unless it’s natural. Junk food, white carbs, meat (still being made eat fish, but I’m still pushing for vegetarian) etc. 

And I eat very, very little dairy. I might have a Fage Greek yoghurt every now and again, but that’s it. It makes me feel very sick, so I do everything I can to avoid it.
