I know how it feels trying to please family. Trying to make them happy despite how I feel inside.  It’s hard because I feel like I’m betraying myself when I do eat. People don’t understand what this is. It’s all consuming..and it feels like it’s a never ending battle with my eating and my family. I understand they love me and want me healthy so I don’t end up in the hospital again. But they don’t have to wake up being “this” everyday..

 I am trying and it’s hard. But I shouldn’t treat them like hey are the enemy even if they don’t understand how hard this all is. I know I’m supposed to do this for me but I’m doing it for them. I am loved. Even if it’s hard to believe. I am loved.
