File under: Things a nurse shouldn’t say to someone who admits their disordered eating patterns.
Yesterday, through a series of medical appointments, I found out that I weigh 60 pounds more than I did last year. That’s half a person more.
When I explained this the nurse practitioner who saw me and explained that it was through over-exercise and near-starvation that I had ruined my metabolism, I didn’t expect fascination as a response.
I didn’t expect “That’s amazing.” “How did you do that,” and I felt a little guilty when I beamed with pride.
Yeah, I WAS strong. It was a feat of great determination.
Ugh. No no no! Those are bad thoughts!
But… They’re true?
Because under-eating is far less shameful than binge-eating….
I can’t win.
