Letters

So my nutritionist recommended that I get 8 keys to recovery.
I began reading it and did one of the activities. Different than what I expected.
This assignment was to write a THANK YOU letter to my eating disorder. Excuse me WHAT?
Basically it was to distinguish your eating disorder from your healthy self.
After writing the thank you letter the assignment was to re-read and think about what you could have done differently instead of engaging in the eating disorder.
Here’s my letter.

Dear Rex,
Thank you for helping me get through high school. You made it easier to ignore the hurt and torment I was receiving. Losing friends, and other relationships, struggling with classes, and teasing about my weight was very hard for me. You have me some hope of control, if not with everything at least my food and weight. And it worked. You also took away my ability to not feel my emotions. This made it easier to go through the motions of the day.
If I didn’t have you throughout those years I don’t think I would have survived. So many times I wanted to die, to just end it. But you took my emotions and made me numb. This allowed me to go on. You helped me lose weight, get through school without pain or memories.

Dear Healthy Me,
I know high school was hard. Rex saved you. But you could’ve sought help from you mom. From school councillors, any outside source. I know you don’t like to speak up for yourself, but look at what happened. You didn’t gain control, you lost yourself. You’re stronger than you believe, you will recover from you disordered self.


"Being strong isn’t being able to starve yourself for three weeks. Being strong is being able to get out of your eating disorder and becoming healthy, even when the voice in your head won’t let you. Ignoring this voice, ana or mia or both, IS being the strongest, so don’t ever give up"


Importance of body fat

Here are a few major functions of body fats:

•Body fats help to maintain healthy skin and hair.
•To maintain the right body temperature, it is essential to have adequate body fat. • Body fats are the storehouses of energy in the body.
•Body fats are necessary to ensure the smooth functioning of cells.
•Body fats have a cushioning effect on organs and tissues.
•Body fats act as a shock absorber for bones.
•The body will not be able to absorb many vital vitamins like A, E, D and K unless they are able to combine with fats.
•Body fats are also believed to act as immunity boosters to protect the body from ailments.



Reality Check

thin-is-not-perfect:

You can not concentrate whilst your brain is starving.

You can not do your best in school whilst your brain is starving.

You can not play/perform your best in sports or artistic/musical activities whilst your brain is starving.

You can not participate actively in relationships if your brain is starving.


You can not live life to the fullest if your brain is starving.

I don’t like when people just evade the truth and confrontation like serious grow some balls and say it to my face.


Earlier in the winter my life began to crumble. I lost my job, wasn’t in school, and now I’ve got more medical shit on my plate. Throughout this journey there as been one constant good thing in my lie. My boyfriend. He was stood by me through my relapse and is always there to offer support and love. 

However, recently…that seems to be slowly fading. He is busy with working and directing a play for our school. Little by little he is pulling out of my life. I know hes busy and I get that. I completely understand. 

I just need my rock back. Panic has been coming almost every night. We barely talk and when we hangout hes tired from work. 

I’m starting to feel less and less important in his life. Its tearing me apart. 

If I lose him, I dunno what Ill do.
