The Anorexia Voice by xoxdaisychainxox The Anorexia Voice by xoxdaisychainxox
There's always a voice inside my head. It never quietens. It's always there... whispering.
"You're not good enough... too fat... you don't deserve to eat... you're disgusting..."
Will this torment ever end?

It's comforting to know someone else understands... I'm sorry, because I know how terribly convincing that voice can be.

For me it's not just a little voice, it's kids at school, it's bullies. It's not stop, but i'm not fat, and you, you're really skinny, so please, keep eating.

I hear that voice too... But i'm in treatment and i'm getting happier again <3 food ectually turns that voice into a small meeningless enemy...
Before i was 160 cm and 43.5 kg, i looked like a skeleton...
But I admitted it and it helped me to get better again. Now I'm 160 cm and 48 kg and I'm happy about it <3
my boyfriend also likes my body better now, than before, because i'm not so boney, pale and tiered <3
My mood is also getting better and I am more awake and better looking again!
My advice: try to eat? "just" give it a try? curves signalates fertility, which is a HUGE turn-on for men(and some women) and they like a soft and plump stomach to kiss and lie their heads on <3

That was my comment... I hope you can use some of it <3

Thank you for putting this up there. It's the most expressive deviation I've seen about the actual struggle. And, (NOT pushing my stuff just offering support) here's some lit I've written about that wonderful disorder:

I know that we all need to know that others feel as we feel. So this is my reassurance to you that I understand.

Hang tight honey!

I'm working on not listening to that voice.. and after a while it starts to fade... It's still there but no where near as important.
I hope you can be better some day =)

I hate the voice but I will never let it die, never hurt or hinder it - I just want to be happy with myself, like myself. Why can't I ever like myself?

Let the voice go... when you hear that little voice, focus on it, then you make it fade, you can do it, just focus on it and you will hear it go... it will fade and you wont have to hear it any more. Don't give up, be strong.

I too know that voice well. even when i look at food its there being like, "don't even think about it. the answer is no. you don't need it, you've got MEALS on you allready, you stored them over time and with every meal you skip you are burning one off. keep going and you'll finally be not so ugly." i sympathize with you, honestly, just ignore it and pray that it goes away in time.

You know it is possible to beat it... It took me years but I'm OK now! I've realized that it's NOT worth it to listen to the voices! Keep on fighting -I promise you : what you gain from resisiting those voices is well worth fighting for!

I hate the voice in my head. It never shuts up and I cant control it. So I tell my mom the things I hear and say I cant control it so now she wants to comint me. Sorry if I spelled this wrong. This made me feel good, now I know I'm not crazy or alone.

Yes, it can end. But it is a battle. One that takes a long time and never completely goes away - but it's worth fighting.

I used to think being thin would make everything wonderful. Along the way I realized I was losing so much that was wondreful all along.

Also...I realized how selfish I was being. I was hurting myself and the ones I loved and I was consumed by thoughts of ME.

Thank you for sharing your artwork!

You have to handle directly against this voice. Do the opposite of what it tells you, only than it will get smaller, you can trust me.
I know this voice very well...

That voice is the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with...and it took too many near death experiences for me to realise that it really wasn't true...if you need any help with dealing with the voice...or any other problems for that matter...feel free to PM me :D

In my head I hear-Your disgusting, no one loves fat people and if you eat too much you will turn into your mother-a fat cow, who loves that? You can't gain weight because peope expect you to look thin and if you gain weight you no longer matter! That is what runs through my mind. I don't know if it will go away and sometimes I don't want it to. Sometimes it is a comfort to know what I am going to be thinking about. If you wanna talk more that would be great. Everybody needs a friend and someone to talk to. I consider myself to be a borderline anorexic. I do force myself to eat and usually keep it down, but I hate it, and I have to force myself. I do not remember the last time I enjoyed eating. Nothing tastes as good as thin feels-ya know?
