Being On The Other Side: When Friends Struggle With Eating Disorders (Video)
I recently learned that several friends of mine also are struggling with their eating disorders, and that it hurts even though I also have an eating disorder.

I can totally relate, well to an extent. Ive been in recovery from anorexia for about a year and a half but still have eating disordered thoughts and tendencies. One of my biggest supporters during the worst of my anorexia, is now underweight but refuses to acknowledge how sick she is and looks. It is so frustrating from my end because i am so mad she did exactly what I just recovered from, and yet at the same time so incredibly jealous. It has ruined our friendship. All i can do now is pray for her but it's just sad, and frustrating thats all. I just wanted to share that because i could relate to this video. Thank you for posting it.
