and I forgot to mention …

That some people are really ignorant and will say things like “hot dang girl, you don’t look like you have an eating disorder” (or equiv) or not really understand what’s going on and thus appear to not really care even though they probably do, they just haven’t quite grasped how to show it yet. Then there are the people who will choose not to support you through the hospital visits, dietitian visits, trips to Sydney etc and won’t ask you how you’re going. Or those who may not ask you what is going on in your life at all even though they know full well that you’re trying to recover from this eating disorder and damn it’s hard.

Yeah, you gotta forgive them too.
