Well, I haven't finished it. But I have written over 200 pages. It's semi autobiographical and about a girl with BED/BN and another girl with AN/EDNOS/BN. It explores the "Do I have a crush on this girl or do I just want her body?" theme, as well as themes of PTSD, sexual/familial abuse, and some commentary on how men's porn addiction objectifies women and feeds their eating disorders. There's also rampant substance use (mainly benzos and alcohol) and EDs are portrayed as addictions. There's numbers, which I plan to redact if I ever were to publish it. Is it worth finishing? Idk it's been so fun but also sooooooooooo triggering to write. I'll share it if you really want to see. I know some people (like me) really like reading ED stories and have read all the good ones already.

Wow sounds incredible. If its really triggering and hard to write you can take a break. And think about your end goal. would it help or hurt to finish? what do you want the readers to feel? will they be triggered, validated, informed, etc? think about the audience as well as yourself.

i love writing and im also writing a story where the main character has an ED and a young son.

When you get published, I totally want and advanced reader copy (I'll write a review).

Or put in a google doc; I would proof read.

I would like to proofread it before you send it out


The most important VIPs are those that are the weakest. Those that care about increasing their profile more than taking care of themselves. Those that rise closer and closer to the absolute top while moving closer and closer to the blackness of unconsciousness.

I would love this and I'm sure many of us if not all could definitely relate!! 😍 As sad as it is when people suffer with something it is great raw material for a book that gives it substance. I can't wait and all masterpieces take time so if it's doing you harm and will turn into something you hate you should defo take a break!
