An eating disorder will over-promise and under-deliver. I've noticed in working with those living with an eating disorder many are hopeful an eating disorder will aid in feeling happier, safer and in control. Over time we begin to realise the eating disorder has sold us a lie... but then the challenge is to figure out how to live life without the eating disorder's numbing capabilities (enter: a great psychologist and practice, practice, practice).

    This really resonates with me - really struggling to find my way out of AN, often missing these ED capabilities, having a hard time trusting the process and myself.

    Itโ€™s unbelievable how true this is. I have no idea what I thought I was going to gain by putting myself through what I did, but I achieved NO happiness, further control or health. But Iโ€™m glad to be on the other side saying the way to achieve happiness was by going against what my ED said.

    I can't relate to none of this because I'm too ugly for relationships because first of all I'm ugly and universally unattractive which is why I'm 21 and never had a girlfriend and I'm still a virgin because of my looks and when people call me handsome or not ugly I know they just being nice because in reality im ugly as hell to everyone. This how know im ugly and universally unattractive: I get no likes on Instagram but other guys get thousands of likes and hundreds of comments and I post in Facebook beard groups and I get no likes while other men get hundreds of thousands of likes. So when people tell me to have confidence it a waste of time when you ugly as me and being rich successful or lifting weights will never change how ugly my face Lip's and eyes are. So I have to remain single for life because I'm too ugly and people who don't think I am just being nice but I don't even care no more because dating wasn't meant for ugly people who look like me
