Our first S.E.D. meme! Welcome to Selective Eating Disorder headquarters, home of the S.E.D. Snail Kites.
and voila, i have created a meme!
thinking of making an image macro meme ie ocd otter, derma dragonfly, mental illness mouse, etc
but for picky eaters.
what animal do you think would be a good choice for sufferers of selective eating disorders?
the s.e.d. snail kite?
the s.e.d. ferret?
(snail kites and ferrets are both picky eating animals)
some other animal that starts with s?
My main “safe” food is really starting to make me sick. I don’t know what to do…
thats happened to me before. it could be that youre just actually getting sick, which messes with your taste buds. or, it could just be one of those cycles. if theres a different version of that safe food that you can stand, try shifting to that for a while instead.
I really wish I could tell more people about my eating disorder.
I wish SED was as well-publicized as anorexia.
I wish that when people ask me why I eat the way I do, I could just say “I have selective eating disorder”. And it would shut them up.
I wish I could go one day without either being stared at in a restaurant, or being pestered by friends during special occasions.
I wish I could eat normally.
But I can’t.
And since I can’t, I wish that people could accept me for who I am, and not what I eat. You could have a fucking elephant drizzled in mustard on your plate for all I care, and I wouldn’t constantly bug you about it because it’s called common courtesy and staying out of other people’s business.
I wish I was somebody important so I could raise awareness about SED. And in the good way, not the TLC, “Freaky Eaters” way.
I have an eating disorder. And even though I’m not anorexic or bulimic, I go through the same struggles with food as other people with eating disorders.
And therefore, I would like respect when talking about what I eat. Just as you wouldn’t constantly laugh at someone with anorexia, consider how it must feel to constantly be picked on for what you eat.
Imagine if every time you ate a certain food (say, turkey - fairly fitting for today) someone stared at you like you had two heads. Imagine not being able to eat in peace because you’re too busy answering questions of “why don’t you eat normally?”
Next time you consider asking those questions, let that thought run through your head.
thoughts i empathize with.
Food results from yesterday:
An excellent and cohesive article regarding Selective Eating Disorder - one of the few not laden with bigotry and discrimination.
Many children don’t like eating their fruits and veggies, but for thousands of adults, picky eating isn’t something they can outgrow. It can even be life-crippling, though it’s not yet officially recognized as an eating disorder.

Okay, so I was reminded the other day that I am overdue on that post I promised you guys about why I am just utterly overwhelmed by my diagnoses.
