Being Ourself When Posting

I post on this forum as a middle-aged female w/ ED and related ED issues. These are my issues. I do not write to annoy or trigger any post reader here on this support forum. These are my daily ED issues.

I am a real person w/ some real issues. Whether I choose to speak w/ a "Professional" or not is my business. I am Not Running Away from my problems.

I have had to stand and face many issues some just happen to trigger my personal body image related issues and or appetite-related problems,s too. I understand the administrators will censor a few words here and there, however telling someone how they should write about their issues is not the goal of this forum.

That is like the job of a teaching assistant who is in charge of editing a student's thesis paper. I already wrote, and re-wrote mine several yrs ago, and actually earned my degree by age 23-ish too. I controlled my body, back then too. Otherwise, I would probably be on welfare and have 5 kids attached to my love handles.

My ex-lover was supportive of my ED related issues but he also had some issues which he saw a specialist for. We were like 2 bad toes bandaged together and made up a perfect pair until...He and I were both adults and he was really my 1st lover, and probably my last real lover too.

I am candid about my issues like many celebrities have been on even national live TV. We are only human, and in America, we have certain inalienable freedoms to express ourselves w/in reason w/o undue censor, or criticism or induced fear that whatever we express will sound "Not Quite Right" to the very critical reader of my posts here...

I try not t to mention certain foods, weight or scale #'s and do abide by the NEDA rules and guidelines. Please feel free to not read my posts, posts written by a middle-aged female w/ some issues she feels are very related to her ED.
