If you do have an eating disorder and you need help with it, please get help. I don't want to punish anybody for having an eating disorder; I want people to get the support they need and not look for it in inappropriate places. I'm scared that this will become a pro-anorexia thread because I've seen this happen on the cutting thread where people started talking about it and encouraging each other in their harmful behaviors.
Okay, I am really sorry to have reacted so strongly. I heard that you are in therapy for anorexia, and I wish the best for you. No one deserves to go through this, and I am sure you're a wonderful person. Just in the particular comment I replied to, it seemed like you were criticizing people for having eating disorders.

I understand where you're coming from though. I haven't been on the cutting thread, but it does sound like if people are encouraging others to engage in harmful behavior, it should be shut down.

You guys are all good

The thing is that nobody deserves the emotional turmoil of having an eating disorder so it really scares the shit outta me when I see you guys dipping your toes in it. I really just want everybody to love themselves, and I know that's not a realistic expectation, but I really do love all of you and I wish you felt the same way about yourselves.

I get why you said what you said. Seeing as you've been through anorexia, you probably don't want anyone else to have to deal with it as well.
