Patience with your friends and family when they unintentionally say things that hurt you as they try to help you. Perhaps you could say that about somone suffering through any disorder? When I first began dating the man that would become my husband I was elated, but afraid. This post, and the comments have opened my eyes to opinions which I would have considered selfish and uneducated in the past. She seems to have a retort to every corny movie reference I make. Any reminder that the body is tangible — including touch by someone they love — can be a painful reminder that they have failed to meet that objective. Ill live in an obvious reality where you are wrong —denying reality will not make it go away, little one. Good diet and hygiene take discipline and forethought, as well as a community of people around you who are doing the same.Next
I never got that sense at all. It's important that you don't define someone suffering through an eating disorder by what they are going through; they're still people. You have zero scientific or pshchologal research to back this bullshit article. Moreover, based on our diets and workouts. But stay strong and build a good support system, whether that involves a boyfriend or not. She needs help, not judgement.Next
With plummeting ad rates across the media industry, we're at an urgent risk of shutting down. But those are his limitations. Hopefully, your recovering partner will be working through the trauma with a licensed professional or through other means, but please understand that this is a long and difficult process. She is toxic, destructive, and — ultimately — pathetic. The person with the eating disorder needs help and support and might become very attached to their partner.Next
We are struggling to discover who we are inside. As a girl currently suffering from an eating disorder, I can tell you that about 90% of this is bullshit. However, there are even more extreme consequences, like tooth rotting, yellowing and loss. But your facts are very wrong! Please educate yourself before posting your inane opinions for the consumption of other people who might mindlessly follow your ideas. Should we now ostracize all men? I have never depended on anyone for anything, nor has anyone save my parents as a child paid any medical bills for me, nor do I take drugs of any kind, nor do I ask for help.Next
I have had one since I was fourteen. But it seems illogical to respond to such a negative article in such a negative way. How do I put the agony into words? I never realised how much I put on my husband in regards to this being his fault until recently. Mental illness — when properly understood — should be no different. Patience with yourself as you try to comprehend why your thoughts are telling you to starve, that you are worthless and that no one could possible tolerate you, let alone love you.Next
I dated a girl with an eating disorder. She probably has money of her own. Think about yourself in an anorexics shoes or better yet, your wife who you didnt know was, even your husband. I can deal with people with Cancer for they are going through something they did not bring upon themselves. You can be a model or a lawyer, you can be old or young. The comments on this post are just as disgusting as this post itself.Next
Eating disorders are — quite appropriately — considered an illness that. The man who wrote this, if I can even call him a man, is not only insulting countless people who are suffering, but is stereotyping an illness which brings death to too many people. The article, by an anonymous author who goes by the Web handle and , is undeniably horrific, cynical and terribly cruel. We do not want to blame you for these issues. With no doubt she will return your love with the same sincerity. I was blessed to date a wonderful young man while I was suffering who continued to support me even as I became a shell of a person. There is merit in helping her see how enjoyable life can be when you do not obsess over your body.Next
She will hate herself for how her disorder hurts you, but it's too hard to talk about it, so her apologies are disguised as gifts. A couple months of processed college food took its toll on both my body and mind: weights I could lift comfortably were becoming challenging, I was experiencing wild mood swings and feelings of futility. The application to the physical body is obvious; the number one thing you can do to improve your health is eat a nourishing diet, and take care of yourself. I am sorry I ever stumbled across this article. She needs to gain her confidence back.
