a dare led to addiction

by Megan
(South Africa)

this isn't an ordinary story to start with. When i was 16 years old my friend dared me to go on a ''hunger strike'' to see who would last the longest without food, and that the person who wins would get an ipod.. So down two weeks, hadn't ate once, i won. I was always self concious growing up, with a low self esteem and a small circle of friends and my family always criticizing me, for once in my life i felt in control, that i out smarted everything and everyone. It became a adiction, and at 17 i still struggle with anorexia. Its not easy, hiding dirty dishes in the kitchen in the day and stealing it at night, bringing it out in the morning making sure everyone see's it, that isn't a life. But i'm getting support now, and making my way to recovery.

Dearest Megan,
I am praying for you and just remember God will never critisize you!
I am so happy that you're overcoming your addiction. I am also overcoming a problem. It is a book problem with reading stuff extremly for 18 and older and I am 17! I seriously have a problem with it and believe nobody should read that kind of trash no matter what the age but it has helped me not to judge people with addiction problems and makes me want to help other people with those problems.
You keep me posted on your progress and I'll keep you posted on mine!
Good luck and many prayers through Christ our interceding Lord.
Annie <3
