Bulimarexia Changed My Life
It was a frigid day in September 2003, and I was on my way into school. This was the first day of school, in my Senior year. Everyone said it is suppose to be the best year of your high school career. However, it wasn't that way for me. I walked into school on that day, and I felt as if I had some terrible disease. People were avoiding me, ignoring me, and this had never happened before. I was always Miss Popularity all throughout school and I constantly had someone around me. Therefore, getting the cold shoulder was new to me. Day after day I would come to school feeling left out and alone. I had no idea what was happening to all my friends. Until one day I overheard some people talking about me. I was so hurt to hear the things being said, because it was far from the truth. These lies and rumors went on until November, when Homecoming was over. Every week there was a new rumor, a new lie, a new way to hurt me. One week I was a lesbian, the next week I dated every guy in school, any lie that anyone would believe. At first, I let it go in one ear and out the other. Even though it hurt, I didn't want anyone to know it bothered me. However, holding it inside was even worse. At this point I felt like I had no one to lean on, and nowhere to escape from this nightmare. I tried everything to make myself wake up and realize this was all a terrible dream. However, I never woke up and the horror continued. During this time my parents were having troubles as well. Hence, I felt like everything was coming down around me and I had no idea how to stop it. Finally, after about a month, I could not hold my feelings in any longer. I ended up falling into the horrible disease called bulimarexia.

...veryone is different and nothing is wrong with that. However, there is something wrong with a world made of the same mold. If God would have done that, do you know how boring this world would be? We would all know everything about one another, there would be nothing new to learn. Everyone is different for a reason and if someone can't accept that, then they are not worth your time or energy. To be yourself is a wonderful thing, and I am glad that I realized this now instead of later. I am enjoying myself and getting to live a less stressful life. I am so thankful to be able to share my story and hope that it will help everyone in some way. Remember that you are important just the way you are and that everyone should accept that, if they are your true friends. You are not a puppet and no one should expect that of you, if they respect your feelings and friendship! !!
