When I was 16, I suffered from an eating disorder (anorexia). I also struggled with depression and self harm. In the last 4 years, I have received multiple (clinical) treatments. I haven’t gotten to that point yet, but I’ve gone further than ever.
What happened to me yesterday made me think (and stress) a lot. This is a small thing, but it hit me like a bomb. Now, I write a letter to those who humiliate me.
Although I still don’t have a healthy weight, I am so much happier now. I am going to own my size. I hope one day I can mean something to the world. I hope by then, they have seen and read this article and learned from it.
Yes I am fat but I am much happier than last years. I have struggled with several eating disorders for almost 5 years. I have been severally underweighted, on the edge of death, forced in hospital.
