I'm now a recovered anorexic...I've finished recovering. [Mar. 26th, 2006|08:44 am]

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.

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.

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! :)
