If They Could Only See The Light

“Hi Jiggsy I would like this post to be anonymous as I realise I’m touching on a subject that will be quite close to home for some people online.
 
Recently I’ve noticed a huge upsurge on social media of posts from people who are suffering and (in my opinion) are thriving on the attention they are getting. 
I’m recovering anorexic and part of my recovery was understanding my sense of self and not being reliant on what others thought. I can’t help but feel that this social media attention only serves to prolong the existence of this debilitating illness and it saddens me.
 
I do understand however how Immersive it can be when your’re under the ED spell. If only they could see the light.
