My battle

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 25, 2013, 1:00 PM


THIS IS NOT A BEFORE AFTER PICTURE, ITS MY BATTLE WITH ANOREXIA
If you go around and start accusing people of being anorexic as a joke, you don't know who you can hurt. Not only skinny people are anorexic...over-weight people can be too. Being skinny doesn't mean being anorexic either, you can be naturally skinny and eat a lot. You can be skinny without having a mental disorder.....because this is what anorexia is: a mental disorder, and a pretty painful one. In 2013, I'm now at a normal weight. For some people I'm not skinny enough, and for some others, it's too skinny. People are never happy with the way you look. So this is why YOU have to be happy with what you are. I'm still fighting, bu I'm never gonna abandon that battle. My dreams are too important, I've been working all my life for this. So before telling someone ''someone give her a burger'' or ''you're fat blob''.....think about it twice, you don't know all the damage you can cause. Stay strong, stay happy and fight!
here are the pictures of the changes:

I think you are very brave to come out and speak of your fight with anorexia.
It's just so pathetic there are people so unwilling to be sympathetic to your pain.

We have two ugly sides of the same coin. We treat those with eating disorders poorly, while on the other side we have mixed messages from the media. Worse still we have all these quick fix diet schemes that just torment those with a real affliction to obesity. No wonder why people develop an unhealthy view towards their weight and appearance. To tell someone they are beautiful is never enough, they need to feel it within and gain the moral support of those around them. I feel that's hard to do when a society like our own is a real bastard about it. It's so easy for us all to point the finger and attack others suffering from this affliction in one form or another. Most of us (a 3rd of the North American population is obese) are victims of our own appetites.

Seriously, how can anybody say you're skinny or fat? o_O You are in an adorable shape (and your boy definitely is a lucky bastard ;-) ) and you should just keep your head up and shrug off those silly and ignorant comments the way you do. Those people actually just show one thing: That they are so much unhappy with themselves in some way that they have to find something about other people they can hate to make them feel better, even if it's completely made up. Don't listen to them but to the folks who do care about you, your work and the things you do and say (or write :) ). In other words: Just keep doing your thing, going your way. And don't stop showing us more of your beautiful face :-)

No matter what the ignorants and idiots say;
You're adorable - in every shape. And much more adorable in the shape you like the most. But no only you.
Everybody. In every shape, in every colour, in every size - no matter your sex.
Love yourself. Love all the others.
Hate, aversion, envy and all that other shit - it will destroy us and the world.

That's all I can say.
