Where are you from?
I live in Europe, not going to elaborate.
I don't eat Breakfast and For lunch I only have a few bites of my sandwich and that's only because my friends and I only eat dinner because of my dad, i'm I anorexic? please respond -Ellie
Hi Ellie, I cannot diagnose you.
Please see a doctor.
WHI = weheartit :) Thanks for your answer - I hope, as well, that this blog isn't taken advantage of although that is inevitable. Also, consider that those who DO exploit your blog will not be admitting it the way those who benefit from it approach you. Above all, I believe good intentions are most important, and that is evident in your view of all this. ...I wish you the best of health.
OH well that is something very different! Sorry for being such an old woman. There devastatingly sick people who are being looked at for “thinspo” of course we are being taken advantage of, but they’re sick as well and need all the help they can get. And maybe they’ll see a post that will change their mind about recovery?
This world has been corrupted long ago, and all we can do is our best, with said good intentions. Thank you for your concern, I’ll try to be even more careful in the future. And thank you, I wish you the best of health as well.
This is anonymous because I don't use tumblr... found your page through WHI. As much as you may sincerely claim you are helping those in recovery, I'm confused as to how one may recover when your posts act as a reminder of what an eating disorder looks like. Does it not give access to those who don't have an ED into an emerging culture of young women crazed with 'skinny'? Wish I could write more but word count is restricted. Please don't be offended and consider this. I speak from experience.
Not a problem. WHI? Women’s Health Initiative? That’s the first thing that popped up when I googled it.
I’m not claiming anything, but we get far more positive feedback than negative. And people find help and solace in not being alone in this. It’s a place to come and vent, to be understood, and find comfort. We are recovery positive, and this is only meant to help. We do our best to not give any tips etc.
And the thing is eating disorders are not only about skinny or body image, there are various reasons, and as many different types as there are sufferers.
This is far from glamorising eating disorders, this might even give a better perspective for outsiders. Eating disorders are living hell and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. I sincerely hope each and every follower will seek recovery, and we’re here to help as much as possible.
Yes, some people will take this the wrong way. Find encouragement maybe, in a very sick way. But I get SO many messages from people telling me they are seeking recovery because of this website, and that is what matters. From what I can see this does more good than harm.
I have to run one errand, and then I’ll be back to answer questions and make submissions. Thank you all for your patience. I’ve been in a bad place, and with uni it all became too much. I am sorry, and please forgive me! xx Milo
(So any questions you may have you can send in now).
I have had bulimia for 2 years now.. In September I started having sex, we don't use protection and I let him come inside of me.. Anyway I didn't get pregnant, I know I should be happy about this and I am but I'm worried too, I'm so afraid that my ed ruined my fertility too and it's scaring me so much :( Do you think is it possible or am I just really lucky?
It’s not necessarily your eating disorder. Do you still get your period every month? How often did you have sex, always unprotected? It really depends on a lot, it can be him, you etc. but you need to make an appointment with your gynaecologist. Really it can be anything from tilted uterus to him having low sperm count. But if you find out early (go now!) you might be able to reverse it! For your sake I hope you’re very lucky.
whats the difference between disordered eating and an eating disorder?
I already somewhat answered this.
Hey, you guys ever coming back? You're one of my favorite accounts :3
Yes, should be back up and running very soon. I’ve been quite sick, and on the verge of hospitalisation and haven’t been able to. Plus exams and papers to write, I’m terribly sorry. Please forgive me, I miss you all. Soon! xx Milo
Please come off anonymous, and I can answer your question.
If I come off anon can I talk to you and you will help me? I just took a pill that I wasn't supposed to take until later before dinner. I wasn't thinking. My body feels like it's in OCD mode. I'm sorry.
Yes, I’ll do my best.
