Take it off your chest...
Read Rules

It's been 5 years since I physically recovered from anorexia, but I never actually recovered mentally. I'm still terrified of gaining weight, I avoid looking from the neck down in mirrors or photos and whenever I feel full, I feel awash with shame and have to bite back the urge to throw up in the bathroom, especially around my food-loving boyfriend who is a cook. I love him to death and I know how much food means to him, but he keeps trying to guilt-trip me into eating more than I want and he's been the biggest trigger for the anorexic thoughts. I still feel mortified whenever somebody says I gained weight and it immediately makes me want to stop eating again. I'm just terrified of becoming fat despite people telling me that I'd never get fat with all the sports I do. I've actually started gaining a lot of weight because I drink it all, my alcohol consumption has been spiraling out of control for the past 2 months. Do you guys see how much I end up contradicting myself? I love alcohol, but I'm terrified of gaining weight. I want to diet, but I keep drinking. Why am I so fuc*ed up?

  • Talk to your boyfriend. You do not have to do this alone. I wish you the best OP

  • The thing is that you have to recognise how you look, love it and shape it how you want it. The numbers in the scale don't mean shit. You can eat shit tons, workout ans still look thin as a strip. But it will never work until you learn that no matter what you do, you will always be you, nothing can change who you are and so you should love yourself. It is freaking hard but it's worth it.
