"The numbers start
getting smaller on
the scale but so does
the number of friends
you have and the number
of years you are going to
live and the number of smiles
you will have and the number
of dogs you are going to pet
and the number of songs
you are going to listen to
and the number of books
you are going to read and
the number of people you
are going to meet and the
number of times you are going
to be able to draw and the
number of times you are actually
going to feel like you are alive."

Recovery is most important. (via dollpoetry)


The thing about being young and having an eating disorder is you experience the honeymoon period. You don’t yet know what it’s like to have one while simultaneously dealing with a mortgage or a spouse. And it almost seems like a harmless thing, because at 15, you picture your life at 18 or 21 or 25 or 30 without the obsession with food or weight. You do it because why would you imagine your future with an eating disorder? It doesn’t make sense.

So you go on assuming the eating disorder will be gone by the time you get to those places in your life, but what you don’t realize is that unless you treat it, it will follow you as long as you let it.

You don’t see Lifetime movies about the adult anorexics and bulimics because nobody wants to admit these things stick with you — not the teens who have dreams of going to college and becoming something important, not the adults who still struggle and have to hide it because of the shame.

So listen up all you young people with eating disorders — don’t kid yourselves into thinking your eating disorder will just end. Get help sooner rather than later, because later may never afford you the same opportunities.
