#TellUsAnything: I am better

#TellUsAnything: I am better

 
 
Another day of no food. Another day of sadness. I don’t eat. I barely sleep. I just sit in my room and think about how fat I am.
 
I weigh about 80 pounds and still think I’m fat. When I look in the mirror I see fat, only fat. I feel my bones poking at my skin. I know I’m fat.
 
My pant size is a one. I know it’s because of my thighs (my thighs have always been little though the rest of me is not). I can’t even wear a bra. I have nothing there.
 
At times I wonder what’s wrong with me? I love going to parties, though I NEVER eat, I just dance all through the party. Only resting when I can’t feel my body.
 
Many times my dad says to eat, but I only pick at my plate and when he leaves I throw it away. No one noticed my weight until I had my first sleep over. My friend invited me to her house. We watched movies, played games and told stories. Yet, when we changed for bed she saw everything. She asked me what was wrong and if I was eating. I broke down and told her everything.
 
Instead of going to bed she took me to the doctor. It was then that I found out that I had anorexia nervosa. Ever since then she has helped me get better……and you know what I AM BETTER!
