When you look into your reflection what do you see For the longest time all I saw was a depressed corpulent girl who had no future I was afraid of what I saw in the mirror What was revealed to me each time I caught a glance of myself in a reflective surface made me sick I fell into awful habits and began to starve myself in hopes that changing my appearance drastically would make it so I would love myself As I lost weight I was thrown deeper and deeper into this disorder into this idea that the more weight I lost the more people would like me and the more I would like myself Imagine looking at a plate of your favorite food your mom just prepared just for you and being able to think about nothing else except for how many calories are in it Suddenly a natural human necessity seemed unnatural as if it was there just to taunt me After months of suffering what this disorder did to me was evident My hair was falling out in clumps my skin was almost transparent so that my veins were prominent my stomach would hold whatever food I ate for days because my digestive system was ruined and my bones were starting to jut out of my body in an alarming way I thought at this point when I looked into my reflection Id love what I saw However I was wrong It frightened me how could I do this to myself Through trying to recreate myself I created a monster As I stared back into my own eyes I knew I needed to recover because this is not who I wanted to be I was embarrassed to ask for help so on my own I slowly reintroduced my body and my thoughts to food Knowing that I was going to gain back the majority of weight that I lost scared me
