2. How do you deal with people (e.g. friends) judging people who suffer from an ed. Last week I heard somebody say: "this ugly anorexic girl" and I was quietly shocked.
3. What do you think about the saying "time heals"?
4. Have you talked with A about your past after it became clear that he knew about it? Has it changed something between you (since that was a fear of yours if I remember correctly)?
The only change that happened is positive. Now I am completely honest and I can tell him that now I'm going to blog or now I'm going to spend an hour answering emails and he understands that. But also being honest about my past. ... Granted he doesn't know everything and that's ok, he doesn't needs to know everything. But he knows what I've been through and has better understanding for me and times when I'm feeling low. He is very understanding and sees me for who I am now even if he knows my past :) I am so glad that he is understanding of my past and also how I blog. If it's a good thing that he knows, because now when I take pictures of food or take selfies he doesn't question it, or when I wit and write on the computer :) I definitely think you should be honest about your illnesses if you are wuth someone and you know it's more than just a fling. If your partner can't deal with it, then you know it's not right and it's for the best that the relationship doesn't continue. Because in all honesty if my boyfriend couldn't accept that I blog, spend time on social media as well as love taking photos of everything then I don't think the relationship would have a future. Hey Izzy,
I've been recovering from orthorexia/anorexia for about 5 months now. I find that I get really bad stomach pains if I eat anything with margarine/butter/oil etc. For example, I had some of my brother's leftover popcorn and I didn't realize he had but margarine on it. I ate it, but had a horrible stomach ache for about an hour. Will these feelings go away the more I try and incorporate these foods into my diet?
