Because people will reblog with “at least I’ll be thin”. I’ll make this part short and sweet. This is true, and it’s not fun. And it’s not worth it when you no longer feel like you have a choice whether to act one way or another.
I’ve been in and out of recovery for 7 years, here is my version from the list above.
Cavities, dying nerves, translucent teeth, near heart failure, palpitations (left work yesterday to go to emerg, and I’m at a nearly healthy weight now), memory loss, poor memory, insomnia, blurred vision, constipation and cramps, severe bloating, IBS, nausea, ulcer(s), multitude of gastrointestinal issues, dry skin, cracked skin, thin hair and nails, near kidney failure, severe dehydration, passing out, swollen glands, amenorrhea, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hormone imbalances, on watch for osteoporosis, weakness, fatigue, and the simplest of all - always feeling cold.
this is just what I am currently dealing with, from this list, with the primary cause being my past and current diagnosis and treatment for anorexia nervosa.
“at least I’ll be thin”
think twice if you actually are aiming for this
because waking up each day to feel like you aren’t alive, isn’t all that great.
