Ah I have too many "one things" too. I kind of wish I could open up about them to my friends but they are so humiliating. People just wouldn't understand.
It’s so hard for people who don’t have any experience with EDs to understand—even when they really want to. I use sarcasm a lot when I talk about my ED in person, to try to hide my shame about things, and it makes people SO uncomfortable because they don’t realize that I’m not *really* making light of my issues, I’m just trying to express myself without bursting into tears.
That said, you can always feel free to share your stories here, without judgement. Even if I don’t understand, I am SURE there’s someone here that does.
(I may not post these messages at once if I receive a lot, just to avoid having them appear in bulk and making people’s dashboards triggering. But I will make a point of posting them all.)
(EDIT: Second side note: Please also be aware of things that may be considered tips if you choose to share your stories—eg. specific ways in which you make yourself sick or avoid food, etc. I will try to be liberal but I won’t post things that I think are directly harmful to others. Be wary of others when you include numbers, too!)
