One in five. 
That’s how many anorexia sufferers die.
20%.
My friend just had someone in her family diagnosed with cancer. He has an 84% survival rate. 
You are more likely to survive cancer than you are to survive anorexia.
That is how deadly this disorder is. 
This is not a phase. This is not a diet.
This is life or death.

Thank you for this

Pros of an Eating disorder

eddoesnotcontrolme:

  1. you will feel skin- wait no … that’s not true 
  2. You will fit into …
  3. you…

Wait there are no pros. Why? Because it is a horrible illness. There are no pros to slowly killing yourself. It is not poetic, romantic, funny, or a lifestyle. It is mental illness with highest morality rate.

There.Are.No.Pros

When are people going to realise that eating disorders are not weight disorders?

You don’t have to be thin / underweight / emaciated to have an eating disorder. 

You can look perfectly ‘healthy’, and have a monster in your mind that is destroying you from the inside.

Anonymous asked: What is anorexia nervosa ?

katieshappinessx:

According to the NHS:

Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder and mental health condition that can be life-threatening.

People with anorexia try to keep their weight as low as possible, usually by restricting the amount of food they eat. They often have a distorted image of themselves, thinking that they’re fat when they’re not.  

Some people with the condition also exercise excessively, and some eat a lot of food in a short space of time (binge eating) and then make themselves sick or use laxatives (purging).

People affected by anorexia often go to great attempts to hide their behaviour from family and friends by lying about eating and what they have eaten, or by pretending to have eaten earlier.
