Reading My Anorexia Diary | How Everything Changed

  • Published on Jul 29, 2018
  • I'm reading my anorexia diary because I think it briefly describes my transition from 'wanting' recovery to taking action to recovery.
    I often think about how much time I have wasted trying to be the unicorn who figured out how to have my eating disorder and recovery at the same time. You can't. And, I don't care to try anymore.

    It’s awkward being someone who is a normal weight (slightly heavy) person who looks to be healthy, but I have 3 versions of myself: healthy eat food to make you feel good, unhealthy eat everything in sight, and unhealthy the hunger is good mindset. But no one knows unless I tell them and even then I don’t fit into a category

    I think anorexia stems from loneliness. That’s what it sounds like to me for your stories. You moved around a lot as a kid when you just needed your family and friends. I’m not trying to pass ignorant judgement, I am just telling you what I think. Good luck with everything and recovery.

    7:06 - 7:30 I have a neurological disorder. It started a year ago. Every day I’ve dealt with intense, debilitating pain. And what you said describes exactly how I feel: ashamed, worthless, and hopeless. it just made me realize that I’m not trying to recover and live because it’s *hard.* so, really, thank you. I needed that.

    I found an old poem I wrote about my sister seeming jealous of my eating disorder, I feel like I've replaced it with alcohol and I can't eat now.

    so relatable. I am a 12 year old. After losing 4 pounds I lost my periods. I do eat less than what I should eat and there's a calculator in my head which calculates the calories I eat. I try to eat more, but I feel so stuffed and comfortably full. I still don't have my periods. You can see my ribs lightly and I look sick even though I am not. I love to exercise and enjoy early morning workouts. I am so confused.
    love from India

    OMG that's exactly where I am right now and needed to hear it from someone who's committed to full recovery. 🙏🏽
    I'm sooooo exhausted from yo yoing & living with fear & pain... I want no I need to eat unrestrictively NOW but the fear of losing control & weight gain is killing me. How did you just keep eating out & not give in to fear of weight gain?? & did your body change dramatically as a result? I'd appreciate if you could pleaseeee explain a little more about the time you really delve into recovery. lots of love🙏🏽💕

  • Syrollesse
    Syrollesse 10 months ago

    I really can relate to how you feel but I am not underweight and I can't really seek any help for my ED and have no support at all and idk what to do tbh it just feels like if no one cares about me then why should I... And I just keep falling into it every time. I don't have any friends and I'm all alone pretty much and I guess it's how it will always be for me. I just feel so hopeless.

    As you read these,I skipped around my own journal and looked at what i was doing during the same months/years that you had written in your diary _ I wasn't surprised to find that my disorder was worsening at the same time you were writing about your own disorder

    a week ago, i was questioning recovering.
    and then i watched this and realised how much i felt the same.
    today, i’m going to eat at least three meals with snacks. let’s do it.
    i’ve had this relapse for four months and it’s the worse it’s ever been. i’ve never weighed this low. so it scared me and now i do want to recover.its just the ‘how’ that i struggle with

    Do you think doing the meals out with your mom is what really made you have the breakthrough to totally commit to unrestricted eating? Thank you for sharing your feelings from when you were sick, I could relate to all of it. You are extremely brave, you go girl xo

    When you were talking about staying inside your bedroom all the time i related so much ,on weekends i restrict a lot probaly only eating half an apple or 0 calorie 0 sugar drink and if i ate more than that i would take laxitives or diet pills so on weekends when freinds wanted me to come over i would say my mom dosent let me go to other peoples places or say im busy but really i just did not want to have sit at a dinner table and eat or have candy and chips all around me beacause i know my freinds are going to have that beacause thats what most teens do on weekends they eat junkfood and dont care whats going in there bodies im recovering but its hard

    After dealing with an ED for almost five years I've thought that leaving treatment about a year ago meant that I'm recovered. Watching your videos and hearing your story has made me realize that maybe I'm not after all. I need to challenge myself and thanks to you I feel motivated to take new steps in my recovery.

    How does she not gain weight with how she eats? Sorry this sentence sounds shitty but idk how else to phrase it?

  • Gina D
    Gina D Year ago +1

    I feel like I have recovered because I am allowing myself to eat so much more than I used to, and I have gained some weight. However I realized just now that I am still stuck in a restrictive mindset because I think that I need to "earn" this food. I run cross country and today I got a horrible race time so I kept thinking that since I was running so slowly I didn't burn enough calories to earn a post race snack or my evening snack. I get extremely anxious when I don't workout and to be completely honest I tell myself I do cross country because it's fun but also partly because it is an easy way for me to do high intensity exercise 5-6 days a week to "earn" the amount of food I am being told to eat. I don't know what I can do about this, any advice from anyone?

    I have never been diagnosed with an ED but I have been underweight all my life. 'I just have fast metabolism' -me every time someone asks my how come I'm so thin. Listening to your entries and watching your other videos has made me realize that I too have a bad relationship with food. I'm always tired and have low energy and I never knew why. I just wrote some excuses on why I don't eat more but I decided to delete them and make a promise to myself to no longer restrict (and maybe ask for help too). Thank you so much for your videos ❤✨

    I actually got teary eyed listening to your diary, since I had anorexia for a few years even though I denied that I still had it. I only just recovered properly and am learning to love myself. I kept a diary like yours all that time and I'm so happy you're recovering and doing better, because honestly, the road to recovery is hard but sooo worth it. so much love for you
