    "I have an eating disorder and I am unwell".

    This has taken me about 7 years to acknowledge. Late last night, I sat in front of a friend and said this, and she was so supportive.

    It does get better. It will get better. I can do this.

    I know how difficult it is for you, having been in the exact position before, many years ago, and I think it is strong of you that you were finally able to come out and admit it to your friend and be supported for it. As long as you keep believing that you can get through it and never feel ashamed at all for having an eating disorder, you will always come out on top and beat it down to enjoy an enjoyable and well-lived life down the line. :)
