I still need your support
Mom, Dad, Friends, Boyfriend,
Most of you know the bare basics of this disease that haunted me for over 7 years. I've been able to control my episodes to where I am today - 3 months purge free. Some of you are happy for me, but some barely care. I don't want to seem like I'm demanding attention, but I need you all to know I still need your support.
Every day is just like the first - a constant struggle over what to eat, how much, how often, how to act in social situations with food, how to talk about food, and how to not dive for the toilet every time I finish a meal. Bulimia still runs through my mind constantly and even though I look like I've got my act together and have made some pretty amazing progress, I still need help.
It's difficult for me to reach out to all of you every time I feel like I'm in danger of myself, so I'd appreciate it if you could keep me in your thoughts and check in occasionally to see how I am doing. I love each of you and am so grateful to have you in my life, but you need to know that as time goes on, healing only becomes more difficult.
