So desperately sad. So very angry

Posted on September 10, 2010 at 7:53am 0 Comments

So there I was, watching someone else I knew from my band days begining to make it on the television, feeling sorry for myself, cursing my eating disorder and what it had taken from me, when I got an email from a lady whose sister died of ED-DM1 in June. Logging on to facebook I also recieve a message from a lady whose son died of DKA in January. I am reminded that I have no right to feel sorry for myself, no right at all.

The loss of these young lives (27, 21) makes me so…

I Know I Cannot Be Alone?

Last Week:


I am on the tube and I am disgusting. Sweat is pouring down my face, I am bright red and shaking. My heart is racing and I swear for a second that it stops...and starts...and stops. My head is screaming and I can't see my hand in front of my face. My jaw is still aching from the tooth that I had extracted this morning and my kidneys ache. My mouth feels like I've been licking sand paper even though… Continue

hi Jacq, how are things with you?

Don't worry. I did not make that a habit. It happened by acident on vacation really. Did not bring extra insulin supplies to Disney World. Learned from my mistake. I've got my heard on straight now and am hopefully losing these few excess pounds healthfully through diet and exercise.

Thank you for your concern. Really. Rebecca

I don't know if you come on here anymore, but I was reading some of your blogs and I would love to talk to you. I would love to talk to someone who knows what it is like to have diabulimia and how you have gotten through it...so please, if you read this I'd really like to talk to you.

"Arguing on the internet = utterly futile"

Completely agree with you. Sorry there are so many uninformed people making pointless comments. We have some members here who refuse to read or try and comprehend anything, they just jump in with ignorant comments.

Keep supporting those that are not being represented.
