I can recover whenever I want actually.
But I don't see a point because we're all on this earth to die anyway. And I have no 'life' like other people have.
I just wake up, enjoy anime, manga and videogames. Starve, workout, and go back to sleep. *Le shurg*

Nope girl. No one messes up with my relationship with my eating disorder.  recovering would mean feeling again all the things which I am escaping from. I cannot imagine my life happy at my ideal weight. I wanna be and stay underweight, almost there since i relapsed.

The exact same for me.
I'm sure one day, you'll make it. Believe in yourself, it's never too late and everybody deserves to feel better and to live a life that suits them. If you want it, then you can do it. I wish you the best. Take care.

You too lovely 🥺 anyone that says they don’t want to recover must be in the honeymoon phase. Years of this crap turns into years of misery

“I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”
Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

if you asked me during the 'honeymoon' phase of my ed i would have said no - but i think nowadays i'd be a bit more open to it. i'm trapped in this mindset and my health is failing when i was supposed to be 'realizing my potential' at this point in my life. i wasted so much time i could've used to practice my art and now my dream of becoming an animator feels so far away.. if i could recover and follow my dream i would choose that in a heartbeat. but i've never really had non-disordered eating so i don't know how i would do it


it wouldn't be that hard to maintain a generally low healthy weight too like i genuinely enjoy eating clean and exercising (when i have energy) but its mental illness eh

yes, if it meant true recovery and not obsessively wiring about food or weight at all anymore. I would in a heartbeat.
