Being anorexic seems AWESOME!
beautyofdisappearing: At first being anorexic seems awesome….. ….At first the weight loss is great. You feel so good about yourself because you’re losing weight. But then it’s like it doesn’t matter anymore. It doesn’t feel good. And every time you look in the mirror you hate yourself. It gets really tiring. Sometimes you just want to lay down and never wake up. Because you’re so...
PTSD - what to do when your progress stops
Sometimes, I feel like I’ve shut down and stopped making progress. I call this being at a “plateau.” When someone is dieting, (as a metaphor) they try to lose weight, the body drops some, plateaus for days or weeks, then drops some more. People dieting get frustrated with those long periods of time in which they are eating right, exercising, being healthy and nothing happens. ...
tryingtobecontroversial: [TW very mild references to rape and victim blaming] Ladies, if you dress a certain way, you can’t really blame people for making a “first glance impression” about you. I mean seriously, you can go on and on about your slut shaming or whatever, but think about it: If you wear an outfit that is generally associated with a particular “culture”...
reali-teaparty asked: i was thinking about you and i hope you're doing ok. (congratulations on fighting your ed so well!) but i realized that all the things i know about you pertain to your abuse and while i know it affects you horribly, that's not even close to all you are. if you're up for it can you share a few interesting random things about yourself? :)
I've gained 10 pounds!
With new memories of being prostituted hitting me 2-3 times a day for the past few months, battling my eating disorder at the same time has been incredibly challenging. But I’ve put LOTS of effort into it, and I’m proud to report that I’m now 10 full pounds closer to a healthy weight. My ribs aren’t jutting out as much, my smallest new pants are beginning to fit again,...
[TW] My parents got paid to gangrape me
I just had one of my more humiliating flashbacks… [Trigger, strong - rape, incest, humiliation.] I was 17, half unaware of the fact that I was being prostituted and abused thanks to a deep repression and denial. A “client” came to our house and offered my parents $1500 to gangrape me while he watched (or as he put it, to “have a threesome with your daughter.”) Part...

bittergrapes: And a moment of silence for those who aren’t still with us, because of the horrors they endured.
thecrowsroses-deactivated201305 asked: [Question about growing up.] When you did have someone you called a friend, did you ever take the time to tell them what happened to you at home? If so, how did the friend tend to react?
myurlisspecial asked: how did you and your current boy friend meet?
"Rape is nothing compared to murder!" Oh, really??
danger-holds-you-to-me: Victims of sexual assault are 3 times more likely to suffer from depression, 6 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, 13 times more likely to abuse alcohol, 26 times more likely to abuse drugs, and 4 times more likely to contemplate suicide. Victims of murder die. Want to tell me again how murder is more brutal than rape? Sure. You get...
allthegoodpeople asked: What would you say to anyone that offered to kill your abusers? (hypothetically of course.)
hurricanekelsey asked: Hi, me again. I know that it's shown that most people who cut are abused in some fashion( emotional/physical/sexual/all of the above), but is there a number of people who weren't abused in any way? Is there something else that could be cause their brain to latch onto this self-harm idea?( I'm asking out of personal interest and I'm a nosey sociology major, and none of my...
deargabby asked: I am sorry for the post. I have never been there and I don't understand. I shouldn't be speaking about something I have no idea about. I read your story and I'm truly sorry. I meant no disrespect.
To the suicidal - "you're selfish and you deserve...
beautiful-confessions: A girl in the next town over killed herself. She hung herself. I feel bad that she had enough shit going on that she killed herself, but that’s the most selfish thing you can do. She had a boyfriend, a guy that goes to my school. He is only 16 and he feels guilty for her death because they fought the day she decided to hang herself. I mean no disrespect but I don’t have...
inthedarkcornersofmymind: This is simple. If you reblog or post something that makes light of rape, domestic violence, child abuse, depression, suicide, self harm, eating disorders, or anything of a similar nature, I am unfollowing you. This shit isn’t funny, it’s terrible and has killed and scarred hundreds of thousands of people.
