Is it true?

Is it true that i just went out of the house (for the purpose of binge food)
and came back with just trash bags and zip locks for the house?
when i get the chance i take it. Not this time.
But now there is this light.
i've never truly wanted to get better. I act. I fake recovery.
I don't care about my health. I don't care about money. Or societies role in my life.
But i do care about *him*. I guess this is the start of true recovery.
I'm learning to care, about health and money.

The guilt is what stopped me the over coming agonizing pain of hurting someone
(that is not me)

****alil back ground note****

have had an eating disorder for about 7 years,
going back and forth between the two
I've had my gaul blatter removed
and been to the hospital 4 times the past 2 months
