I was an amazing actress throughout my eating disorder because no one knew how much I was suffering inside and just how tortured I was. I’m sure that, at the height of my disorder just before “The Intervention”, people close to me knew something wasn’t quite right because my suffering was manifesting itself as extra weight. I think most just thought I had a diet and exercise or will power problem instead of a mental illness.
If your loved ones or friends are pulling away from you, take notice. It depends on your relationship with the person but it may be worth it to GENTLY offer some type of lifeline that will show you care but not push them away. Here’s an important hint: don’t talk about the weight! It could be as simple as providing them a “safe place” where they can be themselves and know they are loved unconditionally. If you suspect something is wrong, it probably is. Get professional advice and guidance if you’re unsure of what to do. You and your loved one will be glad you did.
Are you in this situation and need some advice? I’m happy to help, please contact me here.
Agreed! In my worst days it would have been so nice for someone to say ‘hey, I see you’re down/struggling/hurting/overwhelmed, I’m here if you need me. How amazing that would have been. People run from weight gain like it’s contagious. Not understanding that for some, weight gain is a symptom of emotional pain/angst/turmoil. If you see someone crying, do you run away? Blame the person for crying? No..you hold their hand, hug them, sit with them, ask them how you can help. My fat is internal tears. Bless you Michelle for reaching out to hug/comfort/guide those everyone else ignores.
Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard
time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I
had to ask!
