  Hello All,

I am in recovery from a life of restricting, purging, overexcersing, and hating myself. For once in the 20 years of my life, I actually feel good about myself!

Anyways, I've started a blog- a different approach to thinking about ED recovery: with intellectual curiosity.

Please read, hope it helps, and comment if it does or doesn't!

You are all so brave for working on making your life worth living!

A Chance (x-posted) [20 Apr 2010|09:30am]

Short poem about vaguely wanting to recover from anorexia.


(A Chance)

The buzz of a fleeting shape floats past
all shadow, inward, searching through
dark cafe windows. Home at last
she starts to shape her heart into
a mold unbreakable and clean
from bits of plastic. She'll make do.
She's been this way since age fourteen,
Outside a shiver, blaze within.
It's lose or lose, a pound, a love,
a chance to live,
a fleeing dove
a chance to catch a falling book
with pages blank with promised light,
a chance to turn the gaping looks,
a chance to live, to make things right.

a few things [06 Apr 2010|07:38am]

ladyamalthea_88
Here are a few art things I've been up to... collage mostly. I'm aware I've posted some before but wanted to show them in context with the others. Some are ED themed, some just mental illness themed, some are random.

here we go!Collapse )

But here I am.

This piece is significant to me in that it inspires hope within me that I can eventually overcome my disorders, especially my e.d.

Not triggering. SFW.

I just wanted to give everyone a big thank you for the great response on the documentary series that I'm working on! It's very inspiring! I know the issues we're touching on are very sensitive and private and I really appreciate everyone who has stepped up and contacted me. We're still working on it so feel free to e-mail me if you want more information!

Best,
Kelly

Looking for a Photo Project on eating disorders... [31 Oct 2009|04:10am]

mondetriste
Hey. I know this is a place to post artwork, but I'm hoping it can be a place to find some artwork as well, so...

This has been eating at my mind for the last two days, but I'm looking for a photo project (done by a professional artist with their own website) about eating disorders. I remember this particular photo project was set-up like a slideshow with images of people who had eating disorders with their stories next to it. Unfortunately the only stories I can remember was two girls hugging/sitting next to each other and one was talking about how the other girl had horrible nightmares and would scream in her sleep at night and another one with a guy on a couch lighting a cigarette and then talking about how he only consumed cigarretes and coffee and then goes to work. I think the project was done by a man who also had an eating disorder, as well.

Does anyone remember seeing anything like this who could maybe direct me on where to find that photo campaign? It's 4:15 and I've been combing google for the past hour and a half trying to find this art piece.

Descriptions


it's just...

the way...
it feels to be alone
how resounding
the silence is at night
the misery
i pretend i don't notice
the food...
I can control it
the silence
it tears me and makes me see
the mirror
it scowls at me
this room
it holds me in
my mind
i try to make it stop thinking...
