Think Anorexia is funny? Sorry. I am a survivor and find NOTHING cute about this.
Wanna dress up like an Anorexic? All it takes is:
4 years of hospitalization
A nasogastric feeding-tube because you’ve starved yourself so much that your body doesn’t recognize food as a good thing and tries to attack itself.
Re-Feeding Syndrome, which can kill you.
Emotional struggles for years.
A father crying and pleading on his knees begging for you to get help
A mother who cries every time she sees you because you look and SMELL like death.
Holidays missed, birthdays crying in a hospital.
Almost every major organ in your body failing.
A shower chair - because you can’t stand in the shower because you’re too weak and the warm water could make you pass out.
A wheelchair, because you are too weak to walk and it could make you go into cardiac arrest.
A lifetime of medications for anxiety and the health issues “Anna Rexia” caused.
Plenty of money for multiple ER trips due to “Anna Rexia” even in recovery.
And if you don’t get help like I do, or even if you do, a coffin. Because I’ve lost more friends to this eating disorder then anything I’ve ever faced.
I almost died from this. I know it’s supposed to be funny and shit and yeah I get that, but seriously. THIS IS NOT FUNNY. Anorexia is nothing to party about or laugh at. It’s real, it’s deadly, and should not be marketed as a slutty outfit.
Want to dress as “Anna Rexia”? Just go as a Vampire, or a Zombie. Because 1/3 of us are dead.
This is powerful and needs to be reblogged. Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa should NEVER be made fun of.
