I went to a party, and I came a little bit later then anyone else. When I sat down some guy some over at tried to tie his hand around my ankles. I’m kinda in shock as he says “damn, you really are very skinny! We’re have talking about if a hand would fit around your ankles”.
Well then it’s okay. I see.

This one is probably true (which is why it hurt a lot) and my friend said it, not knowing that I was/am struggling.

"Anorexia is for people that are self-sabotaging."

This comment definitely made me feel like my eating disorder was my fault, and I'm an attention-whore that deserves to suffer.


oh god ive gotten comments like this too. and i feel the exact same way when i hear them. even if we do use our ED as a form of self-harm or something, it is still something that’s out of our control and severe.

“You aren’t anorexic”-my father, who knows that I was told I was anorexic by the freaking iop dieticians

“Next time you pass out I’m going to leave you there”-my mom

“You look healthy”-my former therapist, to me, at a BMI in the 16’s

“At least you weigh enough to menstruate”-minute clinic doctor when I was trying to get my sports physical done

“You look like you wouldn’t be able to lift a baby out of the pool, you’re so tiny!! Are you certified?”-lady at the pool when I was working as a lifeguard

Jesus. Fuck all these people saying this shit. I think the rudest/weirdest shit that happened to me was when I was at my lowest point and this girl who I hadn't talked to in a long time but knew about me having AN started texting me asking for fucking weight loss tips and "how I did it". Didn't know how to react to that shit lol


Lol just say straight up. How do you lose weight? “Eat less”.

At my lowest, literally every family member wouldn't be quiet about how "gaunt" my face looked

I think they were full of shit to be honest, considering most of my family is overweight

I'll never forget my first night inpatient for anorexia. (forced)

The staff member who searched me/my luggage told me she was surprised when she saw me, because I didn't look extremely thin, like someone with an eating disorder.

This was at an eating disorder facility treating ALL eating disorders, not just restrictive ones, it was an emergency check in at like midnight after a very chaotic and emotional night, while I was also going through intense drug withdrawal since I was getting clean. I had had acute renal failure a few months prior, and was roughly 85 lb at 5'6.

I'll never fucking forget that.

After losing a lot of weight …

 

FEMALE BOSS “You look scrawny”

MALE COLLEAGUE “ You look like (famous person) … She’s hot”

MOTHER “You don’t want to gain weight and lose that cute body/ nice but/ sexy look etc.”

 

OK, neither my boss, colleague nor mother knew I had an ED. They didn’t know I was starving myself. Also, most people would not find it offensive to be called sexy but I hate the word.

 

BUT

 

ED DIETICIAN: “Other people who see me do what I say. I tell them what to eat and they do it. There’s no point you coming here if you won’t listen.

 

ED PSYCHOLOGIST: would admit that she wanted to lose weight and congratulate me on my weight loss. But the worst thing was comparing me to her other ED clients, telling me their BMI’s and saying how much they ate. She described one of them well enough that I could recognize her.


“He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.”
― Lao Tzu


HW ever: Too ashamed to say! 😢
HW this year: 75kg (after relapsing and regaining weight)
Current weight unknown because I’m too scared to weigh myself. Afraid I’m bigger than my HW. Feel so miserable.
GW1: 70kg ❎
GW2: 65kg ❎
GW3: 60kg ❎
UGW: 55kg ❎ I will be happy 😃. All of my mental health issues will magically disappear.

When I came back home for Christmas (keep in mind I went to a performing arts school), my family was really concerned and I guess talked to my mom about getting me help. I'm guessing she thought I told them I had an ed and not her which makes no sense cause why would I tell them that if I wasn't ready for treatment, ya know? Anyways she started screaming at me about it and I finally broke down crying explaining how depressed I've been, etc. and when I was done she started CLAPPING and said "wow, your school really taught you how to act" I still get so upset whenever I think about this night.

 

My moms boyfriend when I got up for more food at Thanksgiving: "Wow you have a pit for a stomach tonight" 

 

My cousin when we were talking about how her sister lost some weight: "I mean she's def not starving herself or throwing up like you do"

Some random woman said to her friend behind me at the store loudly so I could hear "She looks so haggard! Look how thin she is and she looks young!"  It was really rude and hurtful.

Highschool classmate asked me for weight-loss tips after I came back from the inpatient clinic stay & after just having told her I've been struggling and how shit it all was.

Also when I was at my lowest these random neighborhood teens my age at the time called me ugly cause of my low weight and made fun of me on my way home from school.

"It's your fault that your stitches didn't heal right, since you're malnourishing yourself."

From an urgent care doc when I went to get some stitches removed from my hand, totally unrelated to my ED.

when i was abt 5 lbs heavier than i am now, slightly underweight bmi i was hanging out w my guy friend (who i hadn’t seen in a bit) and he’s like “wtf have u been eating?” and i was like it’s my meds they make me lose weight. then later (keep in mind we were w 2 other friends of ours) he’s like “you used to b hot not gonna lie like ur body was good now u just… ur way too skinny” and i’m like ok 👌 and he was like grabbing ky wrist and like “how is ur wrist so tiny” and like comparing them it was just hella uncomfy


That’s terrible! Reminds me of my ex who said he preferred chubby girls and complained about how skinny I was when I was a normal weight the whole time I was with him.
