Eating Disorders - @feedinglils

“Hey, my names Lily, I’m 13 years old, and I wear periwinkle to raise awareness for eating disorders. I’ve struggled with anorexia & body dysmorphia for the past year & 1/2, and it has been probably one of the most challenging experiences of my life. I was discharged from hospital in September of this year, after spending 3 weeks inpatient with a feeding tube, from having a critically low heart rate and hypothermia due to being at such a dangerously low weight. A couple months ago I was at the worst I’d ever been, physically & mentally. I was frail, my hair was falling out, I was so dizzy, I couldn’t concentrate, and mentally I couldn't stop thinking about food, I would cry over my illness & body every single night, I would hunt for “pro-ana” content online all day, and I really wasn't living the life I could have been. Anorexia has taken so much from me and I'm happy to be an example that recovery is so worth it. Nobody deserves to ever feel like I did.” @feedinglils
