Why EDs are not good. *May Trigger*
« on: October 31, 2011, 01:40:35 PM »
Ok, so here is a thread to highlight all the negatives of an Ed, to help us question why we let this evilness control us.  It doesn't have to be major life threatening stuff, often a collection of the smaller things add up to so much more.

I'll start.
I hate that I cannot now enjoy a bath, because I can't 'slide down' the bath to wash my hair as it hurts my back bone and I can't lie on my back as my bones are the only thing that touc the bottom and even sitting is not that comfortable.

Sitting for any length of time on a hard chair is painful.

I can't just go to a resteraunt witha friend and chose what I want becuase of taste alone.

There is not enough time in the day to think of normal non food related stuff, because the food stuff takes up all the time.

Good idea for a thread

It makes me very self absorbed, and most likely a bit of a bore.
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we've been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late

It affects my mood and energy, so to the people I love most in the world I am a grumpy harrigan of a mother with no energy to play. Enter the guilt even more.

It made me miss 15 months of family life as an inpatient and countless other days where I just haven't physically been able to participate.

I don't suffer from ED  but just wanted to give hugs and say that I think this is a good thread. X

+1 to what split said, I think this is a really good thred x
behind closed doors, all is not what it seems,
you only have to realise with one look at me.
to see things that you didnt first see,
like the person i once was-i use to be.
behind closed doors is where it will remain,
now her sanity is gone she is no longer sane.

It means sometimes Im not able to do what I would like to do because of my distorted perceptions of my body/weight/appearance/what others might be thinking.
I can't swim with my children.
My digestive system is affected.

It takes over and impacts on every part of your life, eventually becoming your life.
I guess it's funnier from where you're standing, Cause from over here I missed the joke
Clear the way for my crash landing, I've done it again, another number for your notes
I'll be your clown, behind the glass
Go 'head and laugh, cause it's funny
I would too if I saw me...

You lose everything. Friends, family, trust, achievements, opportunities, identity, etc. And it ruins your teeth.

The only way you keep your ED is by becoming decietful and a liar. To those that matter most.  It's part of the illness not your own personality, but you become so embroiled you become 1.

I can't remember what it's like to eat 'properly' and feel ok with that and that makes me feel sad. Good thead.
