Default Eating Disorders and Self-Image

This thread is a place where people who have eating disorers, have had eating disorders, are worried about their weight, or wish that they were skinnier can rant, get angry, give others advice, share ideas and coping strategies to overcome eating disorders and bad self-image, tell their stories, ask questions about eating disorders... anything, really. Mostly, this thread is just to help any KPers who are dealing with anxiety and insecurity about their weight cope, vent and talk about it with people who have dealt with the same.

I hope this thread helps!

I want to be able to choose what to eat and when to eat it without being pinned down and force fed and vomiting. Yet my grandmother says that's an easing disorder

I'm really sorry you had to deal with this. I sometimes feel a little bit bad about my weight and make a big deal of it, when in reality so many people are dealing with much, much worse. I very much hope that things get better and it is not so hard over time. Feel free to come here any time and rant.

Ikr. I have several friends who are very slim and skinny, and sometimes it's hard not to compare myself with them... because although I'm definitely not fat, I'm not exactly skinny either.

Exactly!!!
And oh my gosh the worst is when they compare themselves to you e.o
One time my friend said " I think my legs are smaller then yours'
No duh, Sherlock. Pointing out the obvious. It was hurtful though XD
