    Opposite of butterfly hunting is a memoir written by Evanna Lynch Has anyone read this book and was it worth the read? I am in the waiting queue to get it from the library, but theres 30 people in the line before me. It would take me ages till i can actually get my hands on it. Im really...

    has anyone ever observed characters in media that they were really envious of their skeletal bodies? one of the characters that inspired one of my relapses was the Joker or more specifically Arthur; another recent inspiration is Viktor from Arcane; and also Winston from 1984; when i...
  3. Books and Poems
    Last year I wrote a thesis paper on how weight loss got "scientific" during the 19th/early 20th century and stumbled upon a book from 1918 that claims to be the first diet book that uses calories as a measurement. It was written by a female doctor called Lulu Hunt Peters who lost herself about...

    I found this 90s gem "flavor of the month" by Olivia Goldsmith where one of the main characters is fat and ugly and gets a tonne of plastic surgery and loses 40 lbs to become "beautiful". It's a ride and triggers me the way only good old 90s media can. Plus so retro. Now I'm looking for more...

    Are the first three books worth reading for the anorexia/bulimia storyline? That's where my reading comprehension has dipped, but there we go...
  7. EDS Book Club
    I'm dog-sitting and bored, so I'm reading the book "Thinspo" for the second time. It's a simple book, obviously written for young teens. It's not the worst of the genre, but MAN, I forgot how crappy the ending was. It's not that the ending left something to be desired, or felt like a missed...
  8. Books and Poems
    Hi guys! So I'm a hobby writer and I'm currently working on a memoir about my experiences with eating disorders. However, I'm almost finished and it's only 16,000 words long (approximately 50 pages). Does the length of an ED memoir matter to you? And if so, how long does an ED memoir have to be...
  9. Bulimia Discussions
    I do this thing where I read memoirs about people with similar unhealthy issues as me (eating disorder, alcohol binging, anxiety, etc.) idk why but it makes me feel better about myself. When looking for one about bulimia I've always felt like it's been slim pickings, and then the ones I have...

    Y'all. Y'ALL. I've been reading (or attempting to read) a novel by the name "Thinspo" by Amy Ellis since it arrived yesterday. I want to scream at how god-awful it is but nobody I know IRL will understand because, well, obvious reasons. I made a similar post here about it before I actually read...
  14. Books and Poems
    I've just started reading this book and it seems amazing. It's very much on the same line as Brain Over Binge - i.e. training yourself to view urges to binge as a greedy Pig. You can read it for free here: http://neverbingeagain38xl94.s3.amazonaws.com/Never-Binge-Again.pdf Fancy starting a...
