    My ex-mother-in-law used to criticize my eating habits, and anyone who ate more than twice a day. She barely ate once a day herself and I’m now convinced she’s anorexic. It was amazing, when my ears were not in range of her judgemental voice anymore, I suddenly looked 20 lbs thinner in the mirror, even though I realistically hadn’t lost a single pound at that point, and I really never had to. I was thin. It’s odd because now my struggle with weight is more along the lines of “I should, but I really don’t want to or have to so I won’t.”

    My father projected his sexual issues onto me. He was a church-on-sunday kind of man. However, he also rented porn movies, watched soft core porn with us, leered at every woman, (including teen girls) stared at my body a lot, and engaged in sexually inapproriate talk with me.
    He saw me hugging my boyfriend and decided that I was “too sexual” with him. I felt filthy with shame. I gained 20 pounds to hide from his leering gaze and sexually innapropriate behaviour.
    My whole family knew about this and I was humiliated.
    I could never have a sweet, innocent relationship because of him. I always felt disgusting and.embarrased.
    My father is a fucking asshole.
