Okay so I just need to get this out because it's been bothering me lately. My friends call me anorexic because I'm skinny and I'm afraid to over indulge. First of all, anorexia isn't a laughing matter and it isn't a reason for you to look down on someone. Yes, there are the girls who go on group diets because they want to make skinny a trend, but some people really do have an emotional problem with food. If you have an emotional problem with food, that doesn't make you a bad or self centered person. Second, my friends are the kind of people who don't eat breakfast, lunch, and sometimes not even dinner. They say that they're too lazy to get up and eat breakfast, school lunch is disgusting, and they don't like eating with their families. So they just spend most of the day eating a few chips from other people's lunches and tiny cupcakes. How does that make them any better than someone with an eating disorder? A person on a diet probably has a larger calorie intake than them. I actually eat a lot too, but the difference is that I eat meals instead of junk. I still eat chips and cookies and stuff, but I never substitute those things for real food. When I refuse to eat like them, they tell me that I'm anorexic when in reality I'm eating more than them.
I'm also going through a weird depression with several stages. So first when I'm mildly depressed, I don't feel like eating much. Then when I'm extremely depressed/borderline hysterical I eat a lot to make myself happy (not junk food though, actual meals). After I calm down a little bit, I feel stupid for stuffing my face. Then when I'm finally neutral/happy again I eat normally.
So I hope this rant sort of ends all the stereotypes about skinny girls and people with eating disorders.
