Do you ever feel like you just want to be alone with your eating disorder? Like you just wish people would leave you alone so you could engage in your eating disordered behaviors. *sighs* I'm not sure that I like this feeling.

YES!!!

ED loves to stay hidden...secret...private. Sometimes I feel like pushing everyone away and just be alone. I know it's just the ED, depression talking. I don't like the feeling but in a way it does seem rather appealing sometimes.

Hey,

I hear ya girl.  ED doesn't want others to know so it likes us to keep it hidden. When it is hidden people can't be the food police, they can't try to make us eat. The more hidden we keep ED, the more power her evilness has over us. We just need to rob her of as much power as we can by being open about it all,

Love

Promise

I absolutely hate eating when people are around. I feel like they are watching me, ready to pince and make comments. I feel like the food police are on my case.

Love

Promise

Exactly!! And all it takes is for one person to make any sort of comment and I'm done. I'm ready to have a complete tantrum right there and then.

I guess I'd rather be a food snob. I get so I hate everything about it...and all the food police too :/
