    Mirror mirror on the wall
    Tunnel vision on the flaws
    In the scale of things it’s unimportant
    So no talking but it’s still an intrusive thought
    Tried hard to correct it
    But nothing was effective
    No-one else seemed so obsessed with it, things were desperate
    Until the voice crept in
    I can help you, trust me, you’re ready
    It seemed dangerous
    But it said to have faith in it
    The secret is to just be empty
    Didn’t know if it was wise to listen
    But what could it hurt to try?
    And at first it was working
    But then things were emerging
    Cracked lips and Tired eyes
    I’m hungry with no appetite
    I’m shivering and shaking, and I tell myself it’s fine, but
    You can’t fool your body, you can only fool your mind, yuh
    I just need to be empty
    Hide from anybody who’ll prevent me
    Just fill up on water and shame
    No, I’m not hungry, I just ate
    I’ve developed a taste for this
    Endure the neverending ache
    Convince myself I’m in control and it’s not
    All that voice that makes me sick
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    Been getting even worse
    All the days begin to merge
    Just a blurry haze and now it’s
    Almost second nature to ignore the urges
    Can’t trust my own nature
    Every calorie a failure
    Gotta push the intake down every day
    ‘Cause the voice comes back to say
    You want to eat? Bite your tongue
    Don’t want to stay an embarrassment
    just have to stomach it
    They don't know what you want
    A tug of war against common sense
    don’t wanna believe that I’ve overstepped
    But it’s so overwhelming
    And I hope no-one can tell
    ‘Cause the numbers keep decreasing
    This ordeal is becoming routine, check
    Arms back neck thighs Suck it in and Pinch my sides
    The scales are betraying me, the mirror is a lie, yeah
    It all comes down to numbers
    I know it’s wrong but
    Just because you know you’re colorblind
    doesn’t mean you can see the colors
    Fine, I admit I’m addicted
    But the hunger feels good, how do I quit this
    I know I could die, I’ve seen the statistics
    But the voice is with me through thick and thin
    I can reach out
    To someone not like me
    If you ask for help it doesn’t make you weak
    I can reach out
    ignore what the voice tells me
    I can help my mind learn to trust my body

    (dave is such a nice genuine guy i appreciate all he's done to help me. thank you dave!)

    It's so sad to think this is a real thing. Eating disorders are real and the most deadly mental disorder. My brother had an eating disorder and had to stay at a mental hospital for 2 and a half months while trying to cope with the stress of not eating the things that he didn't feel were right. I'm so sorry for Jaiden and her friends and family that have had to go through this. I'm so glad that you've come over it though. That is amazing

    I have anorexia...kinda. Nobody sees me for who I am and they instantly start calling me a fat, ugly, ratchet slug. Even my own mother called me fat. So I started skipping meals but still nobody noticed. This is legit happening right now and I'm starving myself to death. It just started me skipping breakfast but as time went by I stopped eating entirely. I literately haven't eaten in months. The numbers don't even seem to be going down, the mirror makes it a joke. Now I'm slitting my wrists and I don't know what to do. There's nobody to talk to but myself. The saddest part I'm only 10.

    This is really not my type of music, but I have to admit it was well put together, and the lyrics are very touching. Great job! I'm glad you're doing better, Jaiden. I assume the recovery process is similar to that of OCD (and other addictions) in the sense that you're never truly cured, you always have to consciously fight your urges. It's admirable that you speak about your issues so openly, and I wish for you to stay strong and not relapse. However, if you do, don't keep it to yourself, even if you're worried about disappointing the people who have praised you for overcoming it.

    Jaiden, many people thinks "Oh, that's an awsome youtuber" Yes, you are! But not everyone thinks about you as an awsome person.
    You ARE an awsome person! You are so brave and so strong, nobody is just like you.
    You make my day fantasic, even though it maybe started awful.
    I watch you'r videos everyday, and I have seen many videos maybe 33 times or more. Keep up❤
