Having an eating disorder is like being unable to stop touching a hot stove. You get burned over and over again, and yet, your brain continues to tell you to touch the red hot surface, even after your hand is blistered and destroyed. People look at you like you’re crazy, because they will never understand why you do it, because they know it’s completely illogical, but are powerless to stop you. And when you put your hand on the stove and hear the sizzle of your skin melting and the smell of flesh burning, you take your hand back and cry. You put it under cold water to sooth it, but the water dripping down your hand doesn’t stop the tears dripping down your face, because you know it will only be time before you touch the stove again.

Interesting analogy… but there are no rewards perceived from touching a hot stove, whereas there are many that people perceive that they get from eating disorders.

I don’t want eating an apple to feel like a binge.

I don’t want to keep eating the same foods over and over again.

I don’t want to stay home when everyone else go out partying.

I don’t want to cancel plans because I’m feeling fat.

I don’t want to push boys away because I can’t stand the thought of them feeling my fat.

I don’t want to hurt my family anymore.

I don’t want to keep pushing everyone away.

I don’t want this disorder to control me anymore.

next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
