20 Emotional Confessions About Having ARFID/SED
ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder), formerly known as SED (Selective Eating Disorder), is an eating and feeding disorder in which people limit themselves to specific foods typically based on appearance, smells, presentation, texture, taste, and even brand. People with the disorder may not even have any significant differences in weight than the average person. While others may scoff them aside as "picky eaters," imagine constantly being unable to eat new foods because of feeling anxious. These Whispers'll make you think twice about judging others' eating habits.

The struggle is beyond real.

1
I really want to lose weight but with ARFID it's the hardest thing ever and people don't get it

We're not "picky eaters!"

2
One of the hardest things about ARFID is that so many people think that "picky eaters" choose to be this way.

Social events become a regular source of anxiety.

3
Everyone who say ARFID isn't a eating disorder can educate their selves. It's real and it terrorises my life. I avoid going to parties with my friends and in fancy resteraunts i have to order chips.

Whoot! Progress!

Avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) caused me to only eat about 20 foods since childhood but in the past month, I've tried 25 new foods & added 10 to my list permanently! I'm happy 😊

I have SED, and my mom thinks it's just a phase. This really upsets me.
6
Having an eating disorder that isn't widely recognized is the worst. You wouldn't tell an anorexic person "just eat." Why mess with my preferred foods when I have selective eating disorder?
