here is my before and after pic (as anon requested):
before: 14 years old. surrounded by friends. at a swim meet. preparing for states and hoping to make the cut to get into zones. wearing my brand new fastskin which i was super happy about. smiling. happy. not entirely happy with life but still fucking happy. super athletic. had the promise of making it to nationals by the time i was 17. had a dream of making the olympic trials for london in 2012.
after: 20 years old. quit swimming 3 years ago because my body couldn’t keep up with the strain due to what i was doing to it and mind couldn’t keep up because of the torment it was going through. crying after fainting in the shower after a serious binge purge episode. scared to death. wishing i was dead.
this is my before and after picture. this is a girl full of promise and hopes and dreams turning into a young adult who can’t even function due to her mental illnesses/eating disorder.Aww bby
