I have struggled with my eating disorder for as long as I can remember. Everyday I hear about it like,”you should eat more.” “You should eat better” “you shoiluld try more things.” But no matter how many times I explain it to people it is trauma linked no one listens. New Food scares me, eating around people scares me, getting too fat scares me. And no one seems to understand me and tell me I am over reacting or even being over sensitive. That is just a heartless thing to say.

      I'm the same way, I have the usuals at usual restaurants, nausea and just all around not fun times when eating around most people except my boyfriend but if we were eating in public? Forget about it. Being on the petite end, i get "you should eat more/better" pisses me off. Not everyone will understand, but the people who care about you, they will respond the only way they know how. It takes time and everyone will say the wrong things. But it'll get better
