You really did a great job. You can feel with her. And how she is unable to stop her conspiracy. It's heartbreaking.

And I felt that their relationship did growth in the second half though I do wish I saw those moments of connection and growth too! I wasn’t sure about Bella at the beginning in regards to her feelings about Edward but it did seem to change in the second half which was great!

I really loved this story. This Edward is so sweet, cute and funny, I really love him and his personality. I do wish as readers we got to see those times where Bella had set backs in her recovery and how Edward reacted and helped in those situations and I was also very curious to see how he reacted when she told him about her suicide attempt and how his texts literally saved her life. You wrote a beautiful story, heart wrenching at times but brutally truthful. Thank you for sharing

So far I’m enjoying this story. It’s very well written but I can’t help but wonder if Bella feels more lust towards Edward than actual love. It seems like a large part of their relationship has been based on sex and while it does seem like Edward does small sweet gestures for Bella, I wonder how well they really know each other and how emotionally connected they really are. It could be because this story isn’t done and it’s shorter than the ones I typically gravitate towards. I’m surprised Edward hadn’t asked Bella to open up more about herself. If anything I think Edward is more in love than Bella. It seems like bella is in love with the idea of love more so than Edward himself. But it’s early on and bella is clearly struggling so I could totally be off base here!

This story hits hard and close, but I can't regret reading it. I really appreciate how you dealt with the subject matter, as not many people on this site are as conscientious of it. I honestly don't really have any words, I'm speechless. I feel like I found a confidant in this Bella and understood every single one of her thoughts and feelings. It's in my favourites and will definitely be read again and again. Thank you :))

Thank you for giving me the words I couldn’t find on my own to explain my illness is real not an excuse and disappointment from my parent, in my case my mom, is her choice and burden not mine. I cannot thank you enough.

Damn, this story is really good! Great writing. I’m not bulimic, but a family member was. Your writing describes it very well. Most people can’t understand what it’s like to have an eating disorder. Just hopes this story has a happy ending

Only on chap 11 but am really excited to find a fic that has been written so beautifully and that actually feels...authentic.
Your writing is a treat and although the subject matter is very serious I am finding myself very involved in the main character and her inner workings.
I also love the explanations for things at the end.
I'm australian and have zilch knowledge about anything military especially American so it's making things make much more sense. Can't wait to see what's in store although my own personal battle with an eating disorder says that it's going to be a rough road.

This was beautiful. Thank you.

Really good story. Thank you for writing.
Wish you would finish a couple of your ones.

Wow, I have read the whole story in two days. I couldn't put it down. You have made me cry, laugh and fall in love with your words. It's been an amazing story.
The only thing I haven't understood is the duration of Bella's therapy. At one point you say she's been at CED three weeks, then you say two months have passed and when she finally "graduates" she writes in her journal that it's been 55 days.
But overall, I have loved your story.
I was wondering if you allow translations, because I'd love to translate the story into Spanish.

Wow, I'm so glad someone rec'd this fic. It was eye opening, that's for sure. The struggles Bella faced just to make it through each day. She almost gave up Edward so she wouldn't burden him with her troubles. But I was saddened that she felt her life wasn't worth living and almost ended it. That seemed to be the step she needed to seek help. It was a long road but she made it through. It's too bad things like this aren't a quick fix. Even though she had medication she still needed lots of therapy to help her understand she was worth it. Thankfully she had lots of support from Edward. Most of his family was so supportive too once they understood what she was going through. Renee was there for her once Bella explained to her how she made her feel with her actions. It's too bad her father never came around. He would never understand that her disorders were more than just excuses and failures on her part. He would never understand that she suffered from an illness with a proper diagnosis.

What a journey this story was! It was so difficult to read there for awhile when Bella was so sick and her choices or lack of them were dragging her down so far. I loved Edward for loving her despite her illness and sticking by her like he did. That makes all the difference in the world sometimes. It is also wonderful that they got to have a child of their own. That in itself woke Bella up to the fact that she needed to be well so she could be a good mother. It gave her commitment to wellness. Love this story. Thank you.

Jake is never going to change, and it was quite nice to see Edward take him down, literally! Too bad she beat him to the proposal. His sounded like it was going to be pretty spectacular. But either way- they are engaged.

Both her parents are missing what she needs. I think perhaps the pressure that Charlie places on her to always be more is at the crux of her self image issues. The total lack of control those pressures have placed on her may have been what she channeled into her eating disorder. To never feel as if you can measure up- if a 95% isn't good enough because it should be 100%, well- that just goes to show that trying your hardest and doing your best is never going to be enough. How does one live up to something you can never achieve? You are always a disappointment. That is a harmful way to raise an emotionally healthy child. In fact, it can be an impossibility such as with Bella. How sad.
