Yesterday, I got a comment from my hospital roommate (she's much older than me), which was, "I don't think you're skinny. Anorexic people should be stick thin. Why do you have to be here??" I was like..., 🙄🙄🙄🤔🤔🤔🤐🤐🤐🙅 I felt I was told that I was not sick enough, and not be deserved to get a treatment and support. Yes, I'm not the thinnest anymore(and it is what I can actually be proud of myself for😉). I'm still underweight and not healthy enough, which is not what I should be proud of. I've been trying to recover. I'm not in the depth of ED world, so I don't show my poor, thin body which I thought was good. I hide it to be stared by the others, wearing long sleeves... Recovery journey takes a long time. my weight restoration is a little bit slow this time😅 but I feel my body changes everyday. I'm worried about it a little bit, honestly. But I'm trying to accept it. It's the proof of that I'm recovering and becoming healthier😌🌟 I got a little sad by her comment, but I'm proud of myself for keeping myself in a sad mood, being depressed for so long.
Many people out there still recognize the people with ED as being certain shape/size no matter where the patients are in the recovery phases. And I wanna claim that Eating Disorders are not only about anorexia. There are the other types too. And when it comes to anorexia in recovery, you can't say like "you're not skinny. Are you really anorexia?" to those who are anorexic. They are recovering, they are trying to let go of thinness and become healthy. They are still struggling. It's not only about anorexia and all the mental and physical disorders.Take care what you say to the others in general. Almost all the people you meet is fighting a battle you never know. Show your respect to the others. And be kind to them too😌😌🌟🍀 #edrecovery #edwarrior #eatingdesorder
