I'm currently in treatment for an eating disorder and self harm and I wanted to have a place to find humor in what I'm going through and find a way to laugh at myself and stop taking things too seriously. I also suffer from depression that sometimes has psychotic episodes, a dissociative disorder, OCD, anxiety with panic attacks, and PTSD. I know, it's a lot. It's easy for me to feel like I'm incredibly messed up or broken so it's nice to be able to laugh about things.
I'm on twitter at @FindingEmilyE my name on there is Recovering Emily. My other tumblrs are findingemilye.tumblr.com, ofeverythingiam.tumblr.com, findingmyrecovery.tumblr.com, and swiggityswagimahag.tumblr.com
Anonymous asked: For the past few months or so I've been keeping track of my purging and marking it down every time I do it and recently I've been going to a lot of parties and maybe getting just a little too drunk and because of that I always end up vomiting up all the alcohol and good I've eaten that day so do you think that counts or I should ignore it I really don't know
If the purpose of the drinking is to make you vomit then yes, that is purging. Even if you’re making it happen indirectly, if that’s what you’re trying to accomplish, yes.
Many many things count as purging but they aren’t exactly listed on medical websites so people dismiss them. Try to recognize when things are actually an attempt to get rid of calories or “make up for” something you ate@3 hours ago

She can’t get around without help the pain is enough to make her want to die.
1 dollar. $1 would help. If everyone gave $1 she could get her dog to the vet. Even a tiny little bit counts and makes a difference.
This girl is genuinely the sweetest kindest person I have ever met. Her name is @lifeasitoccurs on twitter. She is recovering from an eating disorder and self harm and is an amazing support to others who have also been abused. She has talked me through flashbacks and calmed me during panic attacks and been generally awesome and selfless.
She is incredibly sick. She struggles with chronic health problems and has horrible chronic pain that she can’t afford ANY treatment for. She can’t get around without help because of an unknown new condition sh’es develoing, but cannot afford a single doctor visit right now, much less the expensive tests. She’s in SO much pain and has had to become homeschooled because of this. She rescued a dog from an abusive life and this sweet puppy has a UTI she can’t afford antibiotics for.
If you donate she will be so so touched by it. She has the most grateful, appreciative heart. She deserves relief more than ANYONE.
I’m hoping to do a bake sale or similar type of fundraiser to get money to send.
The situation is getting a lot worse and I’m genuinely scared for her.

I’m sorry about not posting much, but at the same time I’m not sorry sorry because I’ve been on strict bed rest and decided to focus on taking care of myself and not straining to focus on things that are too much right now. I promise I will be back to regular frequent posts again soon. Mentally I’m so just so blank and numb that I’m really out of touch with myself and feelings. I usually have post anesthesia depression so this is normal and will start improving soon.@2 days ago with 25 notes

Thank you :) I’m trying to keep myself from feeling bad about taking care of myself. When I’m this numb I just can’t handle much or my depression gets really out of control@2 days ago with 9 notes
