Here's What I, A Former Anorexic, Have To Say To The Bullies That Made Pig Noises At Me

When I was 16 I developed an eating disorder (anorexia). I also struggled with depression and self-harm issues. The last 4 years I’ve been in several (clinical) treatments. I am still not there yet, but I am further along the road to recovery than ever.

Yesterday something happened to me which made me think (and stress) a lot. It was such a small thing, but it was like a bomb hit me.

Now, I’m writing a message to the guys who fat-shamed me.

This is me (20)

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.

Better to have a little meat on your bones and be healthy than being thin as a twig and close to death. Also, some teens are real s**theads. I know from experience. Trying to act cool by being rude and insulting when in reality they just look stupid. Don't mind them. Ignore the pathetic little idiots and love yourself because that's what you deserve

@AlphaPuck I agree that being overweighed isn't the most healthy option! Fortunately, my blood results are great! I cycle 17 miles on every week day and eat a lot of veggies and enough fruit! Unfortunately I am a huge stress and emotion eater and I do have a lot of binges besides my healthy eating pattern. I hope I will go back to a healthy bodyweight in the future, but a big difference between now and then is my mental health state. I no longer punish my body by hours of exercising on little to no food. I am able to live again. Lots of love, Eva xx
