I’d Eat A Burger For That

“My life is a timeline of nightmares.
I am from a large family but I always feel alone. I stopped eating to make them see that I was hurting; for them to talk to me. But they had their own demons to face; why should mine be any different, right?
 Sure, I’ve had anorexia, orthorexia and sometimes I make myself sick but I can’t seem to find any joy, that feeling of euphoria anymore.
It’s like I’ve gotten bored of the disease, like it’s wearing thin (excuse the pun). My mother hangs up when call, while I look with a sad understanding at my full plate and empty stomach. 
I would give anything to have a family, a real family. Heck, I’d eat a burger for that.”
