roxschach: Introduction - Survey

Name: Roxy
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Unsure, but it's sure as Hell not straight. =P
Location: Oklahoma
ED: Ana, former mia, little ed-nos
SI?: Yeah. A lot more when I was younger, but it's flaring up again. Yummy lighter burns.
When did you start your ed?: Probably a couple years ago internally, but it's just recently gotten very active.
Height: 5' 3"
HW: 125-ish
LW: 96
CW: 109
Say something about yourself: I'm really new to Livejournal. I ony joined because I wanted to join communities like this, wherein I could talk to people who understand and don't judge.

I started self-injuring at a young age out of reaction to being raped and not telling anyone about it. My ED tendencies are the ones that have really stuck with me, and the most prevalent ones currently.

Aside from this mopey description, I'm a very happy-ish person. I love to laugh and joke around; everyone that's ever known me swears I'll be a comedian one day--- though I want to be a psychologist (or a clown. I could do both, all Harley Quinn style).   That's me, in a nutshell. ^_^

Hm, it says "no comments" above this entry window. But I'll give it a try anyway...

Hi Roxy,

It's so great I found your site! ... It's just so darn rare to find someone who has almost all the same traits as I do, lol.
Somehow most women with EDs seem to be very straight. Maybe it's due to the supposed connection between EDs and the current view on what's feminine.

To be quite honest about my sexuality: I don't know where I stand. But I most definitely know I do have one (sexuality, that is)! But I've always had friends of all orientations, though mostly not in my own country (there're reasons for this, but that has to do with the "national mentality", if you can call it that).

I'm lucky in that I've never been mia. There was a time when I was younger when I did attempt it, but that's why I say I'm lucky in that regard: I didn't succeed. - If I do purge today it's not because I try to, and it rarely happens. I have a lot of binging though, no reason to lie about it. But I've constructed methods to stop myself from eating so much that I hurt and really, really feel ill. And then I just sit it through until the following day and maybe do a little extra exercise. - I no longer blame myself as harshly as I used to, for I've realized it's really not "me" doing so much wrong as it's the nature of having a body.

...About SI... that's kind of a hard issue for me to talk about. I don't know how, or how to phrase it, and I don't know what might happen if I open up for the feelings related to it. So at this point I think I better leave it at saying I "know something about it". Duh, stupid, I know. But please bear with me for the time being? ... :)

Well, anyway, I've written far too much. You must've been bored to death by now, lol.

Oh, one more thing: I too love to laugh and joke! It's been a life-saver for me that I have a very well developed (if somewhat dark, or even black) humor.


You really sound like a cool person, Roxy! ... Why not send me a line when you have a minute (and if you want to)?

If we don't "meet" again I wish you the very best of luck on your road ahead!



Ps. I recently found the greatest website I've ever visited. It's the best because it has EVERYTHING ... support and friendship for people with all kinds of EDs, and it also deals with SI. I've already seen quite a few folks there also who aren't straight. - It's just amazing how open minded people are there, and you'll love the site owner..., that guy's special! - It's also not an anti-ED in disguise. Fact is it is both, but it's totally up to us, the users!
