i know this is a controversial subject, and even i sometimes contradict myself. but it REALLY erks me when people use the excuse that they’re “hardwired” or “its in the genetics” to have an eating disorder.
you were not hardwired. starving yourself is not genetic. if it were genetic, evolution would’ve just made you skinny, dumbass.
when talking about your eating disorder, people say “i didn’t ask for this”. im guilty of it too. but rather, what i mean is i didn’t ask to get addicted. but its not like someone shoves their hand down my throat everyday. i made a stupid decision to do it, and now i cant stop.
just like my urge to do cocaine. i crave it everyday. i think about it everyday, but was i “hardwired” to blow lines everyday? no. i made a stupid decision to do it, and well, that’s in the gutter along with all my money.
an eating disorder isn’t genetic. but when you’re raised by a parent with tendancies and you’ve lived restriction, it becomes apart of you. im so sick of hearing people’s bitching about how their brains are wired to do it. it’s an addiction. it’s a weakness. it’s a “disorder”. it’s not a disease.
