eating disorder thread Anonymous 4629[Reply]

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?
are you attempting recovery?
how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?

i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound

>you will just keep finding something new to hate
This much is true, but I prefer to direct my hate towards things other than my own body for once. I am relapsing and everything is coming back, how everyone's so retardedly stupid and vapid, how much better people treat you, the double standard and the social punishment for not being extremely thin versus the pity and whiteknighting for having an ed. I almost regret forgetting about it. There is no way to win.

I was always thin and weirdly envious of spooky anachans since I was very little, but I only became dedicated towards losing a lot of weight at the beginning of the covid lockdown.

I was riding on covid-induced unemployment checks, so I would leave the house and just walk all day, every day - far away so I couldn’t come home too early, and I’d bring no money with me so I couldn’t buy anything to eat. I did this for months, and it was easy because I was temporarily living on my own.

But once I started living with other people again - people who constantly cook for me - all my sense of control crumbled away, and I couldn’t seem to stop eating once I started having normal portions again… I subsequently discovered it’s extremely fucking easy for me to purge. However, even if I’m puking up all my food, ingesting it in the first place makes me painfully ravenous. Constantly starving, only able to focus on food and how hungry I am. I’d never be able to pull off a single day of normal eating, let alone the fasts I used to do. I feel like a whole different person.

Nowadays I come home from work and binge-purge over and over again until I physically can’t stand it anymore because I have to go to sleep. Around 10 times a day, I am puking. It’s been a year of this and no method I try seems to stave off the desperate hunger. At this point, I’ve given up on healthy eating and just buy tasty binge food so I can at least enjoy the experience of slowly killing myself.

I’m sure if I stopped purging that my body would stabilize and I’d become less hungry over time. But every time I let that happen, I see my body become bigger, and the pain is worse than any of the sores in my mouth. I don’t see any way out. I just want this to kill me already. It’s my whole life. What’s hilarious is that I’m barely underweight, too. No one in my life will ever realize I’m struggling at all because I look normal. Above all things, I either want to die, or to visually waste away so everyone gets that I’m actually hurting. I masochistically want to harm myself in this way, and sadistically want to harm others with the sight of me (or my dead body).

Idk. I realize on a cognitive level how stupid and pointless this all is but I can’t stop. I can’t even take any psychiatric medications that might help me because they either make you more hungry (unethical to prescribe because it would exacerbate binge urges) or less hungry (unethical to prescribe becaPost too long.

i'm actually kind of surprised to hear that from you because i had thoughts really similar to those, and i still kind of do. its just entirely unfair. it seems like girls with unrivaled beauty live a completely different life– a life brimming with unconditional love and opportunities.

i remember constantly thinking i didn't wanna be treated like shit my whole life for not being skinny and pretty. but i think i've come to believe that there are plenty of people in the world who are capable of loving and treating others fairly regardless of appearance. there are many people who will fall in love with and treat others well based on how attractive they are, but there are also a lot of people out there who aren't so vapid. why do you think you're the only one with these ideals? you're not. do you really care that much about being liked by such a stupid and shallow group of people? i think i'm really lucky because i got to meet some people who proved to me that my worth wasnt in my appearance to them and i dont really think id be able to change my mind about these things if they didn't stick with me when i was being cringe. so i can imagine that a girl who lacks the personal support that i received may stay stuck in a mentality that all people are vapid at their core.

im so sorry anon. that sounds terrible. i feel lucky that purging has never been easy for me. i know you won't do anything until you actually want to, but if you want to stop, i'd really recommend you find a therapist who practices DBT. idk where u live but i live in USA and a lot of states are offering free psychological services at this time because of the pandemic. your state/country might be the same. i really hope you can find the strength to find resources because purging like you do is incredibly dangerous and will lead to really awful permanent physiological things in the future, if you haven't started experiencing them already.

Eat more healthy and walk more in your city. Why take the bus if you can walk? Walking does not feel as exhausting as straight up sports but it's enough to actually make a difference. Walk home, walk to work. If you have friends irl absolutely spend all days walking together in the city. Unless you live in a car dependant city you should ABSOLUTELY give walking a go. Walking is so fucking based and lots of people forget that!!! i LOVE walking

Don't eat sugar & if you crave it eat fruit. Most importantly eat less. I accidentally lost 2kg recently because I'm too lazy to cook myself dinner.

Myfitnesspal. Cut out proccessed food if you can. Laern to cook if you don't know how. Try to eat protein-rich foods like beans, chickpeas, tofu, etc. Don't dribk calories. Take a multivitamin to male sure you're getting the nutrients you need.

I know the hair thread is kinda dead but I thought about giving it a shot anyway, you s have any hairstyle tips for very long hair?
Long as in it touches my crack when let down in the back. Been growing it for years and my intention is to let it grow as long as possible, but I've been wearing a hair clip for years now and was wondering if there's another simple way to make it look pretty.
I can do basic braids, but dutch braids are impossible. What do

Anonymous 15823


my hair barely grew these years. Like its pretty much the same length (shoulders or less) since im 14yo. Idk what to do
Hair is bit greasy in pic bc im washing it tomorrow
Ive stopped about 1-2y ago bad hair products, i do my masks myself. I brush my hair with a special brush and i use another special one for styling. I barely tie my hair and only with the satin scrunchies or whatever its called. I scrunch. I use a microfiber towel. Idk what to do anymore
I dont shampoo my roots directly. I brush from the end to the top of my hair. I never brush dry hair.
Btw my hair is quite dry especially on ends. Any tips ?

Anonymous 15830

How much hair is usual to fall out every day? My hair is about collar-bone length. I wash my hair every night and some always comes out when I run my hands through my hair. It seems like a lot but I think it may just be the length. It's not clumps or anything.

I mean when I run my hands through my hair while showering, not every time I run my hands through my hair, lol.

How do I get naturally curly/wavy hair? No perms, no curling irons, etc.

Anonymous 15735

Tie your hair into braids (bigger ones for waves, smaller ones for curls) and sleep on them.

Anonymous 15736

This, plus use serums/conditoners/mousses/masks for curly hair and dry your hair with a diffuser on low heat.

Anonymous 15745

do nopoo

Anonymous 15822

and scrunch and help them curls by rolling with your fingers when styling in the morning

Anonymous 15825

No poo doesn't give you curls if you don't naturally have curls. It's just a (supposedly) healthier way of washing your hair.


Favorite/Sexiest Men's Clothing Anonymous 11679[Reply]

I'm curious. What type of clothing do you like to see on men? Care to post examples? I love muscular men who wear black v-necks for some reason…

I know other women who like men in 3 piece suits, but men rarely wear them.

I love hairy men and hairy chests and and and… Gimme dat man cleavage. Slightly unbuttoned shirts. Generally though men wearing basic but formal and well put together clothing is what I like, and a lot of nonas have posted in the thread. I hate baggy shirts on men and I despise sweatpants.

Period Discussion General Anonymous 9864[Reply]

Discuss any findings from the period survey >>9534 or any other period related things here.

One thing that surprised me from the survey was how many women have at least one extremely painful day every month, yet this is barely spoken about and all women are just expected to get on with things.

Did anyone notice anything else?

i've had hormonal troubles for my entire life and no doctor i've ever been to takes me seriously. my period is very irregular - some years i'll only have it 3x, some years it'll come every other month or so. i have severe hormonal acne that nothing topical touches. i get PMDD as well, but only sometimes. sometimes i PMS for 2-3 weeks at a time, and for several months last year i felt like i was pmsing at all times (like the physical & mental symptoms) with no period. i don't understand what's wrong with me, doctors just throw birth control at me & call it a day, but my mental health is seriously affected by my hormones and i can't tolerate any of them. i think they don't care because i'm not overweight, but my hormones have ruled my life basically since i was 16. i'm so tired of it.

Been having period for 8 days when i usually have it for 4. Might just be because i forgot to take one of my BC pills last week and my hormones are weird, but I have a dr's appt so we'll see.

Anonymous 15815

in case anyone needs a non-BC option, which is much better for long-term health, it is pretty easy to get a prescription for Ketorolac (Toradol). It is a stronger NSAID, you can't use it for too many days at a time but holy crap it works well on me.


pussy discharge? 15792[Reply]

so my boyfriend is coming into town in a few days. weve been long distance and ive never hooked up with him. he talks about eating my pussy but i am so nervous about my discharge. my other ex boyfriends rarely went down on me so im really insecure about it. do you have any advice on how to get rid of discharge? i use a q-tip to try and get it out and it seems to be fine but if theres any other suggestions please let me know.

Anonymous 15795

no men care about this anon

in fact they probably like that you are wet

Yeah, most men don't even know what discharge is and he'll be flattered because he'll think you're wet for him haha.

You have to break in your moid and set the hierarchy correctly. When the moid eats you out make sure to piss in his mouth. He'll think you're squirting orgasm and believe he's doing a good job because thats what he sees from porn. At the end you want to be the one fucking his ass with a strap on or dildo or anything you can do to emasculate him and put the moid in his place. Don't ever suck his dick or allow piv

6'2", but yeah. Never done modeling though, lol. Maybe I should try it.
Most moids don't like it when a woman is equal to or taller than them, but the ones who do like it, REALLY like it.

Based on the comments I received throughout my life people perceive me as attractive. Personal rating would be that I look fine.

Anonymous 15811

5/10 at best, I'm just a dorky nerd and look like it, awkward proportions, glasses, hair I can't do anything with, etc. My best features are mostly clear skin despite never wearing makeup and having a normal weight/height. I'm honestly jealous that most girls can look pretty and feminine without really trying. But can't be too mad since I managed to find a relationship, some guys will settle for anything I guess.


abortions Anonymous 12757[Reply]

Hot topic, but what's your opinion of it? I don't like the fact that so many young people act like it's nothing, it's a quite serious topic with many angles to look at it from.
In my opinion abortions should be available until the 8th week, which is around the time the nervous system and brain reach a level of development where the fetus can be called "conscious".
Special circumstances should be available for rape victims.

It's not just you, pro life movement as a whole is motivated out of spite. These folks think that having an unwanted child is a punishment for irresponsible women. In the end of the day, no one cares for what actually happens to these children, it's pretty ironic.

In high school I knew a guy who was your typical brainwashed right winger teen (he only watched feminist get rekt compilations) and I remember i got to talk to him in the context of an english class and the subject of abortions was brought up and he said that he wished abortions were illegal because it kills too many white babies
im scared what he has become now if this was the stuff he'd say in high school

Wow usually I see right wingers agree with abortions because non-whites are supposedly the ones who do it the most.
