I don’t have to skip lunch just because my friends skip lunch.
I don’t have to jump off a cliff just because my friends jump off a cliff.
~Not visit the doctor
~Not go to therapy

But ignoring your eating disorders voice and doing exactly what seems so scary is the essence of recovery. It is what separates being in active recovery and not being in recovery. It starts with forcing yourself to do what you fear.
you are painfully aware of every inch of your body.
'Less, less, less'
You say; always less.
But your body
was not made to subtract from.
I know it hurts, to be inside you,
but please, eat, eat.
And fight, you have to fight,
Just because your mind tells you to starve
it doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do.
