The Look.

There's something that has really been bothering me lately...it's been brought to my attention that many people, well, the WORLD actually, think that you have to have the LOOK of an eating disorder to actually have one.
Ed's have no special look that they go for. They come in all kind of shapes and sizes. The body is only an outward sign of an eating disorder...and many people know how to cover that up while they struggle.
On another note, I don't LOOK like i have an eating disorder anymore. But I do. Most of you thought i was recovered. I'm not. Never will be. My eating disorder will always be with me. But it will not always be a part of my life. I say this to say that people can be in recovery, but still have an eating disorder...even though they don't look like it.

Ed's don't discriminate against sex, size, shape, hair color, skin color...NOTHiNG.

So we must stop labeling eating disorders to a certain look. Anyone can fall victim.

My mom shared this article with me about a boy who struggled with anorexia and i thought it was interesting. Read it if you have time.
