This made me tear up. I am so proud of you for beating this.

I got to know a girl who had this. She was in and out of the hospital for years. She died a few years ago from it. She was living off of two tablespoons of Ensure every few hours. Toward the end, she'd sit up in her hospital bed and break a bone. It was horrible. I still think about her.

What kills me is to realize that a person has to be in a very painful place for this disease to take over and thrive.

And I knew a mom who's son had it. Guys aren't immune. So scarey.

So happy you are a strong person who's gotten through this.

I've been reading your journal but never felt compelled to comment until now. You should be so proud. Having a close friend w/ an eating disorder I see how mentally challenging it is to get yourself out of that place. Do you have any idea why you started on this track? You should say to your co-workers that your not into the exercise club.. you don't need to tell why.. just say, "No thanks."

Hey Jen. I remember this time in your life. (yes, we knew it was happening). We were so concerned about you, it was very scary. Your recovery has been AMAZING. Congratulations! :)

I love you

You're amazing. You're timing is incredible. I'm on child psych and am constantly having my own flashbacks. I'm to the point where I go home and cry. I wish I could be as open as you.

So I clearly missed this post the first time around (where was I?), but thanks for sharing your story.
