Ending the stigma begins with ending gatekeeping and societal stereotypes (Major ED TW)


Tell me why it took 4 long years Living in near constant fear Of bread and Coke and mac and cheese And purging til my body bleeds

I ruined my metabolism Trapped inside an algorithm I spent years in a caloric deficit Before someone would finally listen

A quarter of my life since it’s begun But still they say “not sick enough” There’s nothing healthy in my thoughts All imbalance, and wires crossed

And maybe I’m not on death’s door But I just haven’t lost this war I shouldn’t have to fight alone Until I look like skin and bone

I shouldn’t have to change in size To be valid in your eyes You don’t get where it’s located My 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘥 is what’s emaciated

Only 6% of all people with eating disorders are considered underweight, yet clinicians continue to gatekeep treatment options for a 𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘭 𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴 based on physical symptoms. We shouldn't have to suffer until our bodies are as sick as our minds. If you are struggling, my dms are always open. I've also put some resources in the comments. Take care of yourselves :)🤍
