“Would you rather get there in a coffin?” He’d asked. “Because at the rate you’re going, that’s the only way you’ll get there.”

Begin Operation: Shock and Awe.

In all seriousness, this legitimately sounds like the kind of slap-in-the-face wake-up call that would be needed in such cases to get the point across. So much so that I can't help wondering if this line, or at least the message behind it, is one from personal experience.

Thank you for writing this.

Thank you for sharing this. I think I can speak for the herd and say, we are all glad you are getting and staying better. That all of us will be here at your side should doubt creep back in to whisper in your ear.

Actually that line didn’t come from personal experience, believe it or not. Unlike Rarity I was a binge eater and bulimic, though I did have a period of Anorexia at one time. That line shockingly wrote itself. I have to say I was very pleased with it, since I knew some people in treatment on whom only something that shocking would have worked to get them there.

Thank you guys for reading. I really appreciate all of your support.

Incredible work mate. Favouriting this one.

You did an amazing job with this!

This was quite something, thank you for writing it.
An online friend is recovering from an ED and it's a rough process, but she's doing well and getting better! it's almost scary reading this story because often it stopped feeling like a story and more a personal journal- I kept forgetting it was Rarity it was about, in fact, although the parts where I was reminded of it--like when her friends confront her-- were great.
Powerful stuff, I hope you keep doing better.

I'd write about how great and deep this is, about how it's profoundly impressive, but I don't think I have quite enough words.

I'll try to make do with one emoji, though: :pinkiesad2:

“You’re lyin’ right to my face, Rarity! You don’t eat enough to keep a mouse alive! You’re wastin’ away to skin and bone! You’re killin’ yourself and you’re makin’ all of us watch!” She’d yelled.

Nopony lies to Applejack! Nopony! :ajbemused:

I think it's admirable that the MLP universe seems to consider average weight ponies as the most beautiful. At least they didn't make all the "beautiful" ponies look like AJ as a teenager:

Damn, this was really great and hits home pretty hard. A mate of mine is going those this same kind of thing but getting through it slowly.

No words or comments I can give would do this story justice.

I hope everyone who needs this story gets a chance to see it. Bravo.

Out of curiosity, exactly how does one develop the mental disconnect required to ignore the physiological 'need to feed'?

I'm asking, because I'm having difficulty wrapping my head around how one goes about simply ignoring baseline physiological requirements. For instance: I can 'put off' eating for a short while, if I'm busy with something (when I'm fully focused on a task, hunger becomes 'background noise').

But the moment I become 'unbusy', my hunger returns to the front of my mind, and I am compelled to seek out my next meal.

In addition, I could never put off eating for whole days at a time, let alone sustain myself with tiny morsels that barely qualify as 'snacks'; for me, the physiological compulsion to eat may as well be 'literally' impossible for me to resist completely.

So yeah, I am rather curious about how one manages to mentally disconnect themselves from their physiological compulsions to such a degree. I wish to understand.

You can’t ignore it per se. it still exists and you still notice it. But starvation changes how your brain functions. Food is the enemy and a kind of God at the same time. If you do something to offend it, it will magically add ten pounds to you. You slowly lower your calorie intake and eat enough to subsist. It’s not like Anorexics don’t eat. They just have very specific rules about what they eat and how much they eat.

I suppose I have difficulty understanding an obsession of that nature. Then again, I was never very good at creating a huge, complicated list of 'rules' for myself.

Like, I have basic ones that can be applied 'broadly' in my life, but I'd imagine that's not quite the same thing.


Edit: And I don't think I've ever considered food as 'the enemy'. That designation ends up describing 'other people', at least for me. Heck, I get some manner of pleasure from eating, especially if it's a hearty meal that I know is rich in vital nutrients.

But that's just me. Perhaps my mental wiring doesn't let me understand the anorexic's perspective, no matter how much I try to wrap my head around it.

It's really not something anybody can understand completely unless they've experienced it themselves, but I tip my hat to you for asking. The best explanation I can give you is from my experiences, and it's this: When you can't control the world outside of you, you control the inside- including what you eat. Food either becomes the enemy or your greatest desire or both. Anorexics eat less, bulimics eat and then make themselves sick to get rid of it, and binge eaters eat everything in sight. I've been all three at points in my life. Sometimes there's a genetic predisposition involved that makes it easier for people to fall victims to disorders like those. Sometimes it's just chance. But we all have our obsessions, no matter who we are. Just depends on us, I guess.
