How much do you know about eating disorders?

I found out yesterday that one of my friends from treatment is going to be going back to ED treatment (if you're reading this, darlin', good luck and Godspeed). My friend J is still in residential. I got out of the hospital--for the 6th time--almost exactly a month ago. I'm so tired...

I have seen too many good women lost to this disease--if not their lives, their quality of life. The only thing worse than having an eating disorder be your death sentence is haveing it be your life sentence. And it seems like nothing does any of us a damned bit of good. All these big spirits, reduced to the agonizing smallness of calories, miles and mouthfuls, penance and purging. What an incredible fucking waste.
