Trigger warning: ED freakout and talk of self-harm
A search that showed up in the blog stats directed the trigger from general freak-out into full-blown ED centered.
That of course means that I have the power now.
I can see the scars on my thigh from the last time. I want to open them up again. Draw those lines. I want to remind myself.
I need that visual reminder. So I remember not to eat all those cinnamon rolls. I need to go to the gym with my coworker. I need to get rid of all of this.
All of it.
The others forget. I’m not “normal sized”. I’m not “thin enough”. There’s never enough.
I’m not enough of anything.
Just not enough.
But don’t worry, don’t worry. I’m going to make it better.
I am Ana’s strong will. I am Ana’s icy breath. I am Ana’s cold gaze.
I am Ana’s fierce determination.
