Eating disorders are more complex than a number on a scale or a doctors chart. They are the living parasite of your mind; eating away at your soul until you are consumed by numbers and idealistic yet unattainable and distorted “beauty” of bones and skeletal frames. Eating disorders are much more than an ‘out of hand’ diet that leads you to a dangerously low weight. You may be “healthy” on a chart yet your mind is foul with the disease of anorexia or bulimia, or even another eating disorder that doctors seem to brush away from the severity lying beneath. Eating disorders do not make you happy or beautiful. They destroy your body; first your mind and then slowly, it feeds on your limbs until death grasps you away from the beauty of life. Do not fear life. Take it in your hand and hold it until you’re old in a rocking chair, with memories of happiness floating around you; glowing. Set yourself free from your disease. Recovery is possible.
