    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!)

    wait water is tasteless so that means eating disorders + jaiden's brain
    = -200 + 210 iq
    +10 iq
    then boyinaband's power+jaiden disorder brain
    = 300 iq +10 iq = better jaiden = 210 iq

    I will say. I’m most likely suffering with anorexia because of what’s been happening in my life. I will say that I relate to this video and song wya to much. That you Jaiden for showing me that I need to take a leap of faith and reach out for help with this shit.

    Jaiden. You probably won’t read this. But just know all your fans, friends, and family can help you if you need anything. You can get through anything! I hope you are still feeling ok and I hope it stays that way. You don’t have to be afraid to ask for help. I can help. Others can help. I love you and your videos. Please don’t stop since you are a massive inspiration to people around the world. Also you are very beautiful. Even though you don’t usually show your face, I think it is very pretty and you should be proud of yourself and everything you do. ❤️

    as a person who suffered from anorexia as a child, i don't remember anything other stuffing food in side of my cheeks and spitting it out discreetly, looking at myself in the mirror and feeling sick. i went to doctor religiously and no one ever found out what was wrong until i was fourteen. i now have what is (personally) equivalent to PTSD. i relate (unfortunately) to this song and your story.
