    Scared to relapse/fall off track.

    Hey all. I struggled with anorexia and orthorexia all throughout high school, then in college a bit, but then last summer I actually became bulimic after a trip to Europe with a lot of food. Since then, I'd seen a nutritionist, she gave me a plan, but it was just way more food than I was used to...

    Misconceptions of Depression in Media

    Wrong, all wrong, The media has it wrong. It’s not romantic, it’s not poetic, And God forbid don’t say it’s quirky. It’s not tear-filled kisses. It’s not tight embraces under pretty bedsheets. It’s not rainy days, Or turned backs, Or hands clasped together in mutual understanding. No knight...

    I feel like I'm going to explode. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but soon. For months I've felt like someone is crushing my throat. I was so used to it that I didn't notice how awefull that was until I lost it for a few minutes. Then it was back, and I felt it for real. I couldn't stand it. This...
