My life with Anorexia

Alone I live inside my head, never wanting to leave my bed

On the outside so strong and tough, But inside never good enough

I spend each moment wrapped in fear, afraid of looking in the mirror

What power it has over me, it’s reflection is my enemy.

My bones are not distinct enough, my stomach still too round

I weigh my worth in numbers, hating every pound.

My body aches from hunger, and I relish in the pain

This war I fight within myself, is driving me insane.

I’ve finally hit my bottom, like none I’ve hit before

I can’t stand to live a life so painful anymore.

“Please somebody help me!”

I’m shouting every word

But my prayers go unanswered, my pleas are never heard.

Waiting lists go on for years, fees are just too high

My future looking grimmer, my life is slipping by.

But way out in the distance, though my eyes must strain to see

The light of hope is flickering, and calling out to me.

I’m not buying it Coke; Your product OR your concern.

Grrrr!!!
I just watched a commercial for Coca-Cola that was all about how they’re helping fight obesity with their low or no calorie drinks. The line that really pissed me off was when they said, “All calories count.” meaning that it’s better to drink their diet crap than their regular crap. The PROBLEM with that message is this: Saying that all calories count is saying that the lower calorie option is always the better one and that is NOT always true! It’s not about how many calories are in what we’re eating but what those calories are made of that count! It’s actually better to eat/drink something that has more calories but is full of healthy ingredients than to opt for the diet, chemical filled version of it! Replacing Coke in high school vending machines with Diet Coke will NOT make our kids healthier!
Don’t pretend to care about our health, when it’s your wealth that’s your true motivation.
  Shame on Participaction for partnering up with them too.
