    Oh my…that last point is zinger. I hope everything there turns out the way you want it to.

  3. Excuse the language, but I am so fucking proud of you! You may slip, but don’t slide. Do the next right thing, don’t let it snowball. For like three months, I find that freaking amazing. You are doing great. Your body is biologically wired to return to what you know during stressful times. I am so happy for you!

    -Trust the Process!

    Hi, I really appreciate you sharing your journey and struggles with us. I wish you the best of luck in your road to recovery.
    I am just curious as to what sort of support from friends/family or the community you would be grateful to receive during these times and in your opinion, how you think such a phenomenon could potentially be curbed?
    If you could share with me some of your thoughts, it would be deeply appreciated. All the best.

    • I could share many of my thoughts, but they are mostly ramblings. I am not looking for support really. I am looking to remain in my moderately disordered ways, trying not to sink too low whilst still functioning. I have 2 girlfriends who understand that I can be 100% honest with if I need the outlet. They don’t encourage the ED, but they suffer themselves so they know. My family live far away and I don’t want them to know. I have caused enough hurt and pain there that will haunt me as long as I live. As for my boyfriend, he knows only as much as I let on and I hide everything that I need to keep from him. I only wish I could tell him all the things that trigger me…the words he says, the things he does, the complications that he has brought to my life. He loves me. What more can I ask of him? It is enough, for the most part.
