I don't know if it's ok to post pics here or not. But I was looking through some old pics today and came across this pic. This is me about 10 lbs above my lowest. I was in 9th grade.
I'm pissed off about this because nobody noticed! If my daughter ever looks like this I'm going to ask questions. I never ate I lived with my mom and sometimes my dad they didn't feed me before school, I never needed lunch money and ate a few bites of dinner and nobody noticed! How could you be so self absorbed where you don't notice your child dying in front of you?! I remember wearing a 10slim (kids) about this time.
I don't remember why I stopped eating, I use to eat all the time, never gained a pound. all I remember is that I went from being happy to trying to kill myself at 13 I took 14 sleeping pills slept for 2 days nobody noticed then either. My mom slept all day and all night. She was on meth really bad, I use to look forward to the days she would be high because that meant she would be awake when we went to school and when we came home, my dad worked out of town a lot. I still ate normal, I wish I knew what made me hate food. I have a lot to vent about and a lot to say but I'll stop here. If you read it thanks for letting me vent.
i can understand how you feel!! Im so sorry no one noticed or at least didnt say anything - im sure they noticed just didnt say anything! It painful in a lot of ways. vent away!!! that's why we're here!!!
People are so wrapped up and involved in their own selves that they don't notice those around them suffering. Whats more, if you tell them you are fine they will believe you with out question because then they can devote more of their time to their own selves.
The trick is to not be like that yourself.
I can name you thirty reasons why I don't eat. All of them valid as a whole and none of them valid as a single. Take a step back and you will see the big picture too. The thing I am having issue with is overcoming these obstecles to get back to a normal.
