-How old are you?
19 years old.
-How much do you weigh?
I fluctuate between 150 and 167. Sometimes daily.
-Are you diagnosed? If so, with what?
Yes, I am diagnosed with simply “ED” (which is bullshit, I should have been diagnosed with Bulimia Nervosa but my doctor was a crock), when asked exactly which ED I was diagnosed with, my doctor just said “None in particular, just ED”, so I am just taking that to mean EDNOS, and if I have to label it I will call it that. I’ve also been diagnosed with Chronic Depression and Anxiety and I used to take meds for both.
-What started your eating disorder?
Hate to be cliche but it was my mom. Plain and simple. Maybe a bit of environment, people where I live all have eating disorders, it’s pretty normal here.
-How many calories do you (roughly) eat per day?
Anywhere from 0-14,000
-Can I see your Progress Blog?
Sure, just ask me for the password, I’ll try to respond in a timely manner.
-What is your race/ethnicity/nationality?
Black-White/African(Congolese)-European(Mostly English, French, Italian, Dutch, Danish)/American.
-Where do you live?
-Why did you start this blog? Are you pro-ana??
I started it to get my feelings out. I know, I know, I could have gotten a diary, but those seem too one dimensional to me. This is a place where, if I put a thought out, it’s actually out there, and something positive might come from that. For me, Tumblr has been an overall positive experience. There’s never anyone, if I voice my sadness or depression, who would say anything rude. I get messages from people every day wishing me well, urging me to do better, just simply caring about my situation and that, if anything, actually helps me cope. Apart from that, I see others struggling and I honestly try to help them when I see they need it. People come to me for advice, and I try to give unbiased help. It’s a good thing for me to get away from my problems as well. Sorry this is long, I just also want to say that where I am in life right now, I can’t really, truly talk to anyone about what is going on, and if I keep it pent up I will probably do something awful, so this is the place where I let it all go.
No, I am not pro-ana. Pro-ana is disgusting and I highly disapprove.
