Anorexia, Bulimia, Diabetes...

I try not to look back on my life too much. If I do I realize how much I've wasted. Most of my teenage days were spent in a hospital for complications due to my eating disorder, which almost took my life. Over all, I've spent 1200+ days inpatient... I've lost count. At one point my mom lost all parental rights. I started this diary at age seventeen, the age when my eating disorder was at its worst, when even my doctors had given up...

I am 22 now. I lived. I still cannot believe I made it. If you can just hang on, just make sure you live through the roughest times, it gets easier. It may take a while, be miserable, but, eventually, it gets easier.
