I’ve been struggling with them for about 6 years now.
When I was 10 I stopped eating altogether and got really sick I went from being 100lbs to 85lbs in about 2 weeks and was hospitalized because of it. The drastic weight loss confused my mom and she didn’t know what was going on, I then was diagnosed with anorexia.

I got diagnosed with bulimia in grade 7 when I started throwing up after meals I was forced to eat. Grade 7 was a hard year I starting cutting and had my first thoughts about suicide, my depression started and I realized that my biological father didn’t want me.
I was constantly being picked on by other girls at school for being “fat” when in reality I was only 90lbs at the time. I was slowly gaining back weight and I wasn’t okay with it. I would and still do go for days without eating then I binge and feel like shit so I throw it all backup.

It’s a vicious cycle and someday I hope to break it. I’m currently eating at least 2 meals a day, I’m 34 days clean from cutting and I know better now to ignore what people say.

If I can get better anyone else suffering from these mental illnesses can.”
