I hope my story gives you hope. It is just a small insight of struggle that millions go through every day. However, this is not who I am anymore. The concerns listed in the video are no longer concerns of mine now. That being said, I do hope that awareness is raised on this issue.
You can watch this video and get a glimpse into my life when I was anorexic, but this video doesn't even begin to tell the story or the struggle of thousands of other girls... or my own. Speaking from a personal basis, you cannot see the cold, purple, numb hands, the lanugo covering my shivering body, my hair falling out in clumps, the cold, dark hands. I just spoke with an old teacher who had me when I was at my worst, and she told me I look miserable, had no friends, that the only conversations we had had were about food, that I was very hostile when asked if I had anorexia, would wear several layers of clothes at any time, including sweatshirts in the summer, spoke very, very fast due to OCD and being on the edge I guess, would zone out in class, etc. There are so many horrible memories I have from anorexia, and I hope to help girls suffering and also encourage eating disorder awareness.. hopefully to prevent the onset of this horrible disorder which becomes your life.
