|I'm now a recovered anorexic...I've finished recovering.

I've been thinking about this a lot...trying to word it right.
It finally fits:
Food is life, but my life is no longer food.
I'm terrified of going back there, yet because of this I know I never will.
My life is in my hands yet I no longer fear for my safety. I love how it's turned out. I've done it--I've done it all right. I finally love myself. I finally trust myself with the precious thing that is my life. I've conquered the numbers, and I've tamed the voice.
I'm very proud of you, I've been there before
Thank you my dear! *hug* Hopefully your using it in a past tense means you're over it, too.
Yaaaay!!! Good job man, I knew you could do it :)
Thank you! Strangely, I knew I could. I just didn't know when it would be...but, now feels like the right time :)
Much kudos. Seriously, I mean that, not many people can get through it.
It deeply, deeply worries me that there are online sites and communities that promote anorexia, and even personify it as a 'goddess' of sorts, congratulating people on reaching their 'ideal weight' of slightly more than a small kitten. Grah.
Thank you my dear, I really appreciate it.
And yeah--those bitches deserve to be punched to the nether regions, though I'm not really sure if they're worth the effort. I doubt that most of them are truly sick--they're just ignorant emo wannabes in need of a destructive hobby. They don't understand that anorexia is a DISEASE, not a hobby...and IT DOES NOT MAKE YOU LOOK OR FEEL GOOD! lol.
That is well written and rings pure with truth and wisdom. Thank you.
Thanks, I'm so glad you considered it as such! I did as well--I could have said it sooner, but that was the first time that I meant every inch of it, and I still do! :)
