Roadblock or relapse?? [Sunday
September 2nd, 2012 at 1:59am]

So I've been thinking even more about my weight-more specifically dying for it to drop like a ton of bricks- lately and I've realized that my already halved meal plan from IP is continuing it's magical shrinking act.  I'm also having more periods of sadness/darkness.  Im losing and it's scary how much I like it still and need it to continue.   Everyday I spend time with God, doing at least a devotional and praying, restructure distorted thinking (with ED and my social anxiety thoughts), read affirmations, find know ones, and write down/anyalize/challenge (if necessary) my feelings.  I also just started seeing a new therapist. 

I'm  afraid of a complete relapse b/c I just can't be back in treatment right now.  Also, I'm just so tired of the daily endless ocean of pain with only tiny islands of peace in which I start to feel a little better, have a little increase in self-acceptance, or times like today when I thought of an event in my life that can be my new "safe/happy place."  But by tonight I was turning in the happy tears of this memory for ones of pain and fear. 

Any advice on beginning to release the thin, thin, very underweight ideal and if this is truly necessary.  Like is there anyway I can be out of bondage but still be @ least model thin.  And if not how to gain.  Because I can barely imagine myself maintaining my weight now, let alone gaining.

I think I'm going to start taking my Prozac tommorrow.

An eating disorder is a serious thing....contrary to popular belief it is definately not:

just another diet
a good way to drop a few pounds
just about weight
just about control
a quick fix
easy to give up or recover
something to be proud of
something to show off
a phase
something you can choose/learn to do
about food
about other people
socially acceptable
something you can control, it controls you

It is however:

an obsession
a negative attention getter
a disease
something that will stay with you always
always in the back of your mind
a distancer (from friends, family etc)

An Eating disorder is NOT cool, glamourous,or a way to meet new people (unless of course you want those people to be professionals i.e. doctors, nurses, psychiatrists etc. DON'T try to start-it is something you will regret. Take it from someone who knows...this isn't the lifestyle you want.
