The thing about being young and having an eating disorder is you experience the honeymoon period. You don’t yet know what it’s like to have one while simultaneously dealing with a mortgage or a spouse. And it almost seems like a harmless thing, because at 15, you picture your life at 18 or 21 or 25 or 30 without the obsession with food or weight. You do it because why would you imagine your future with an eating disorder? It doesn’t make sense.

So you go on assuming the eating disorder will be gone by the time you get to those places in your life, but what you don’t realize is that unless you treat it, it will follow you as long as you let it.

You don’t see Lifetime movies about the adult anorexics and bulimics because nobody wants to admit these things stick with you — not the teens who have dreams of going to college and becoming something important, not the adults who still struggle and have to hide it because of the shame.

So listen up all you young people with eating disorders — don’t kid yourselves into thinking your eating disorder will just end. Get help sooner rather than later, because later may never afford you the same opportunities.

you do not have to be strong 100% of the time and that is really freaking important to remember

words come easily to me at 3 in the morning
and yet I have no idea what to say or what to think or what to feel
copious amounts of liquor coursing through my veins
I miss him
this is not a poem

it’s a fucking calculator this is stupid why are you writing your sad weird shit on a calculator see look there’s an error calculator doesnt put up with your sad weird obscure shit


sitting in silence with your best friend is actually really nice because youre together and youre just happy to be together even if the both of you are just scrolling through tumblr and twitter because you occasionally point something else to the other person and laugh and maybe talk but youre just comfortable and together and thats enough
