Oh I'd really like to give that 16-year-old girl a hug. So glad you came through it Rosie xxx

I wish that 16year old girl could have realised how destructive her behaviour was to herself. To have made it through is such an acheivement, but I can so see why you would prefer it to have been an achievement that you didn't have to make.

A beautifully written post. Thank you xxx


Oh my, what a strong and thoughtful reflection and I expect so hard to do. well done for surving, no one deserves to starve themself. I am so pleased that you have continued to fight the deamons. Well done


That's lovely and very powerful, well done and thanks Rosie. I wish I'd learnt from the mistakes of others instead of forging ahead making my own. My hope is that my son is wiser than his mamma!

I've just commented on another of these posts.....they really do open up cans of worms....
If only we knew and could see wouldn't it make life so much easier but the battles that we go through must surely make us who we are today and make us stronger. I've done work with young girls suffering with anorexia in the very distant past and I've had body issues and stopped eating before ( but managed to get over it before it was a problem) it's so hard isn't it and very painful looking back. I'm rambling now, sorry. Anyway, you are very brave writing it down. X

This must have been a really difficult post to write, about such a painful time. Well done, particularly for coming through it...so hard to do x


Wow - amazing post. What a tragic time you must have had and I'm so glad that you came through it. You must be one strong lady x


Very powerful Rosie. Great post.

I think I'm going to end up having to do this meme after all.


What a beautiful post. I'm sorry you went through all that, and very happy you came out of it. x


It's reassuring to see that you got through it all and flourished. It gives hope to those, like me, who know someone going through something similar.


Very very brave, and many hugs from someone who has been there and still is - so well written, so true and something I couldn't even come near to writing about yet. Well done.


Maybe someone in this situation now will read this. I hope.

Rosie Scribble

Thank you, Liz. It has been a long journey but it has definitely been worth it.

Rosie Scribble

Thank you. I agree, I don't think you really think about the impact of your actions at that age, especially on your longer term health. I know I didn't.

Rosie Scribble

Thanks. Yes, it was a very difficult post to write but it seems to have helped a few people so I'm pleased I wrote it. I was a little unsure initially as to whether it was the right thing to do.

Rosie Scribble

Thanks Stigmum. I think your son has a very good role model :)

Rosie Scribble

Thanks for your kind comment. You have made me realise something very important. This has definitely made me a stronger person and shaped who I am today, and I am happy with who I am today, so maybe some positives have come out of all of this. Thanks for making me realise that.

Rosie Scribble

Thanks, yes it was a very difficult post to write and I admit to crying buckets afterwards, but then I picked myelf up and carried on, which is always the best way I feel.

Rosie Scribble

Thank you. I think I'm alot stronger than I feel at times, sometimes it's easy to forget that. Thanks for the reminder.

Rosie Scribble

Thank you, Dan. This writing prompt has certainly had an impact on a lot of people. there are lots if similar posts to this floating around the internet. Do give it a go.

Rosie Scribble

Thank you for your kind comment. I am relieved and grateful to have come through it all and able to leave it all behind now x

Rosie Scribble

Thanks Michael. There is always hope, so never give up. Even people who have been ill for a long time get better. Trust me on that one.

Rosie Scribble

Thanks April. And a hug to you too. Sorry to hear you are still there. Hope this post offers you some hope.

Josie @Sleep is for the Weak

Hi Rosie, I'm sorry I'm late to this one - have been working my way through all the posts!

How inspiring for you to have had this in your past and to have conquered it. I went through this, on the outside, with my best friend and it is something she still struggles with today although she is much, much better.

You are so strong and brave. And want to wrap that 16 yeat old girl up in my arms and tell her beautiful and amazing she is.

Thank you so much for sharing xx

Rosie Scribble

Hi Susanna, Thankfully several people currently in this situation have read it. They have said it offers them hope for the future, which has msde posting it extremely worthwhile :)

Rosie Scribble

Thank you Josie, and thanks for the writing prompt in the first place. I am so pleased I did post this despite being initially unsure, as I've received some wonderful comments and, it seems, offered hope to a number of people I did not know would read it.

Metropolitan Mum

Sorry for being late, I have only know come round to catch up. This is such a strong post - thank you for posting this! I am happy for you to have come out of it and stronger and happier. I know how hard and long the way must have been.

Linda Jones

Hi Rosie, just wanted to say how moved I was by this. x

Rosie Scribble

Thanks MM. Not an easy subject to write about but I'm pleased I did. The response has been great.

Rosie Scribble

Thanks, Linda. I appreciate you taking the time to let me know that. It means a lot x


Oh Rosie, I got goosebumps reading that. You poor darling. What a thing to go through. I'm sure you give others hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Beautifully written x


Rosie - I just came to this post from your one on pro-ana websites. I've only just found your blog. This is a wonderful, touching post, and one I can really relate to. I think it is amazing you have recovered and you are using your experience to try and educate and help other people.
