im gonna cry i dont know what happened to my hunger signals, i’ve never lost them 100% for this long post-recovery :( i was smoking so much before my tolerance break that i didn’t realize that was the only thing giving me an appetite. posting this to commit to continuing upping my food intake back to normal. im grateful i have no ed thoughts, it’s just difícil as always eating when i’m not hungry but it’s the only choice that leads to a healthy & happy life.

y’all i’m tired of seeing men with ed’s and people being like “u can’t have ed ur a man" or like "be a man” like men can have ed’s too and they’re 100% valid and also deserve a recovery, just because they’re men doesn’t make them any less valid.

First three days of Ramadan have been terrible. The way I've been eating after breaking my fast was just disgusting.
I feel terrible after eating, so bloated. I need to change that although I've been fasting for 15h-19h.

Okay, so I am relapsing. But at the moment I am feeling a little better so I decided it is a great chance for making a list of reasons to go see a therapist and debunking some false thoughts that can occur in your head while thinking about it.
💜💙💜
1. I am not bad enough-- maybe you are thinking 'I am coping *somehow*. I am going to school or work so it is not that bad, right ?
Even though at the same time I am not enjoying my life, not sleeping because of all those thoughts running through my head, having plans on suicide or calling myself an idiot ruining everything (usually worse) every 5 seconds. Not true! If you want to talk to the specialist, it is always the right time and your problem is never too small. It may be a way of lying to yourself and not wanting to admit your issues. It is hard, especially when you lie like that to your closest ones (trust me, I know) but it is really important to do so and get help you deserve. Seriously.
💙💜💙
2. I am too bad/ a lost cause/ it will not make any difference/ no one can help me.
If so, what can you lose by trying? I went to the therapy for the first time when I was one step from killing myself. What more could I lose than my life? So I decided to try and you know what? The only thing I regret was how long I have waited to do that! Therapy is much more than talking. It gives you a chance to be strictly focused on yourself and what you need while being actively listened and guided by a specialist. You unlearn unhealthy thinking patterns and learn new healthier ones (researches show that this process is in fact changing your brain, reprogramming it). So ending therapy and then coping on your own is a real life scenario. Also, probably you are very good at catastrophising but I can promise you, there are many people with same or similar problems who seeked help, it worked out and you can do just as well. If you don't believe in yourself, for this moment let me believe for you until you can do it on your own. And what is an amazing opportunity to learn and practice it? Yes, you know.
💜💙💜
3. Others have it worse and deserve the place in therapy more.
Noooot true. You deserve it. Just like I do. Just like everyone does. Therapy is for all and all inclues you. Almost every single mental health issue involves low self-worth so if you feel this way, maybe it is a sign you should get that help. Not the other way around. You will not waste a place or anyone's time, believe me.
💙💜💙
That is all for now. Got tired 😅. I plan on making it a 'series' in here. Let me know what you think, what can I add, maybe sth you were thinking before therapy or what is stoping you from starting. Ofc, feel free to reblog.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you all guys. For us all. We deserve to get better 💜

At what point did my extremely unhealthy coping mechanisms from back when I had an eating disorder become normalised and cool and fucking marketable?

10:30 am - a pistachio mousse. There is no right time for dessert items. I have been eying the dessert case at this place for a few weeks now and I finally took the plunge and ordered myself a latte and a dessert. It’s still a big deal for me to manage both of those things. It doesn’t have to be one of the other. It was worth it 😋

I hate pictures of thin women eating junk food. It's this perverse message that we should be able to eat these things and stay thin. It also sends the message that if we eat these foods and aren't thin we have failed.
But there is this thing called genetics. Some of us ate generically blessed according to social standards and some of us are cursed.
I wish I could see myself as I really am, but I have developed body dysmorphia after a lifetime of brainwashing.
We are not supposed to live like this.

The people telling you to “love your body; love the skin you’re in” are the same people who have never had to shop in the plus size section and who never had to eat lunch in the bathroom because they were afraid of being made fun of in the cafeteria. They’re the same people who whispered to their friends while looking at you and then they would laugh. They’re the same people who have never been afraid to wear something with a whale or an elephant on it because they were afraid of being compared to it. Those people telling me to “love your body” have never had to live in mine.

*THOUGHTS DUMP*
**TW, STARVING, BINGING, SELF HARM**
For the past few years I've had the word 'FAT' carved into my tigh as a little reminder to not eat, that was 2018 and I truly haven't really realised how long I've had these disordered eating habits. It's shifted between starving myself for days at a time and gaging at the thought of food to binging for months telling myself that I'm recovering. I'm falling back into the starving side again and honestly it's comforting. I have my control back, I've been self harm free for almost 6 months but the thought is getting so insaley tempting. "Should I fill in that scribble? The one reading 'FAT', it's been fading for a while after all"

Расстройства приёма пищи. Eating disorders.
Расстройства приёма пищи. Eating disorders.
Очень часто делаю обзоры диет. Не просто так. Потому что просят, а значит спрос на эту тему есть. И задала я себе такой вопрос: что за люди “сидят” на диетах? Со знаменитыми людьми все понятно: они постоянно в кадре, их внешность – это их работа. Я про обычных людей, среди которых мы живём, с которыми постоянно общаемся. И сейчас я не говорю про всех, но у большинства людей, имеющих проблемы с…

My boyfriend: *sees an old photo of me* Holy shit you look so different now
Me: *hangs head in shame* I know I just got fat so I lost literally everything
My boyfriend: Yeah, you were skinnier, but you don't look happy though
Me: *internally* How the hell did he get that from one photo - I mean he's not wrong, which is the worst part
