So I used to be on LJ years ago and I made some awesome friends via it. My ED did kind of 'calmed down' but it's back really strong so I decided to come back to LJ because it did used to get me through some bad times.
So a little about me:
I'm 24 years old and I'm a PhD student.
CW: 7st 10lbs, CGW:7st.
I have had an ED for 10 years now. It started off as anorexia and gradually turned into bulimia. Now it's more just the anorexia, occasionally I will purge.
I'm a recovering addict and spent 4 months in rehab; I'm over 3 years sober *woop woop*.
I used to be a self-harmer.
And I've been vegan for over a year.
Enough about that, so....
I've been eating really awful just lately. Approximately 2000cals a day :( sad times.
But I'm determined for that to change. Yesterday I had 1200cals and today (after dinner that is) I will have 670cals. That is so much better. About a month ago I was 8st which really upset me as I haven't been that heavy since I stepped into rehab where I weighed 8st 1lbs.
I've done a bunch of exercise today as well. So I'm feeling good about today. It's going well so far, as long as I don't mess it up later.
Looking forward to meeting new people and hopefully make new friends.
Love Emz xx
