I have a history of anorexia and it's very hard for me when I'm in social situations and people (especially women) talk about dieting and weight loss. It makes me sad because it reminds me of the time when I was depressed and depriving myself. Can anyone relate?

I can relate, but not respond. Too hard.

ok, I will try to respond.

Not anorexic but not without my eating issues. I also find it hard when people discuss dieting and weightloss. I tend to get upset and depressed too because I think I'm not so skinny anymore and that I'm not as good as I used to be, not as worthwhile, not as clean etc.... I find it hard to listen because I want to go to my old ways and do crazy things to lose weight. I do remind myself that it's just a number. That it is more important to be healthy (which I'm not right now, but oh well) and more important to be happy than to be a size 2 or whatever size "it" is. I think these people who discuss weight loss or dieting in front of me are either dumb (since they know I struggle with eating issues) or self-centered. (After all, why do I care about THEIR weight. DUMB!!!!) Therefore, in social situations, I hear those dumb or rude words, I just walk away. Why indulge in stupidities?

I tried to keep my words as non-mean as possible. I hope I succeeded, since I really just want to spout off curse words at idiots that are so superficial.

Regret writing? I love reading what you write Munkstur! You have a lot to add!
and, yeah, well you know that this place gets dead sometimes and no one replies to anything for MONTHS!!!
plus- i TOTALY AGREE WITH YOU and totaly identify but i dont have the courage to walk away. Eithier way- people dont respond cuz no one looks in thE ED threads and people mostly only reply if it gives them some emotion. You are stating a true fact not making anyone feel anything so no one is responding. If you got someone upset, hey, youd hear about it.
Am i making thisngs worse? am i even making sence?
