recovery is hard

don’t let anybody invalidate your struggles and say you just need to eat because it’s not about that 

recovery is changing the entire way your mind works and how you perceive the world 

it’s like standing in front of a red wall and saying “this wall is yellow” and then trying to believe it

Eating Disorder Stigma


OSFED is not a lesser diagnosis.

Atypical Anorexia is not less than Anorexia.

Bulimia is not for the weak.

BED is not “disgusting”

Anorexia is not the “better” diagnosis.

No eating disorder makes you more or less worthy for love and care. A diagnosis simply helps you and medical professionals better define your condition.

Don’t contribute to Eating Disorder Stigmas. Recognize them as they are. Different, unique, and varying mental disorders.
