WARNING: May be triggering. But I still think it’s important to see.
See this? It’s a 19-year-old girl, she had both anorexia and bulimia nervosa for five years. She’s not alive in this picture, she died approximately 12 hours before this picture was taken. This was how she died, bent over the toilet. The cause of death was that she binged. She binged on so much food that her stomach couldn’t handle everything she was shoving down her throat, so her stomach ripped all the way from where her ribs met all the way to her pubic bone. You must think this is cool? You wish you had an eating disorder? Ha. You see a little green tint on her stomach, want to know what that is? It’s her organs decaying. Glamorous enough for you? This was how her family found her. Imagine your own mom, dad, brother or sister finding you like this: dead. Or imagine yourself in their position. Would you want to find a family member or a friend this way? I don’t think you want to. Is this really what you want? Think twice. I don’t think you want this. Die bent over the toilet? No. Eating disorders are not something you want nor something to joke about! Eating disorders are serious. They’re dangerous. And they can kill you. This is what they do. I want to spread awareness about eating disorders. Too many people strive to be thin and wish they could have the “self control anorexics do”. No. That’s not how it works. They are not something you want, they don’t make you beautiful, they’re not glamorous. But if you still want one after you’ve read and seen this message, then there’s nothing else to say. I can’t stop you; only you can save yourself.
