These are my best friends and they are beautiful. Listen up. 2 of them have eating disorders. You’d probably guess that the one in the middle is one of them, but she’s not. One starves herself and the other has severe bulimia. Eating disorders aren’t just for super small people. Eating disorders aren’t a joke. They’re not for attention. I took these pictures not to show you how super skinny my friends are , but that people suffer. And not every person with an eating disorder is rail thin. And that you could have a friend that counts every single one of their calories and feels guilty that they eat. And you could never know. A big thigh gap is an indicator of an eating disorder , but so is a distorted view of what the perfect girl is.
