You are so used to your features you don’t know how beautiful you look to a stranger. However, if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror and look a little closer.

I started this theater camp today and we had to do this scene where a scientific news article announced that oxygen is considered a carb and my character was a weight conscious girl who tries to stop breathing so that she doesn't gain weight from the oxygen and it triggered me so much, I felt like absolute shit afterwards. I've been struggling with relapse and recovery and not worrying about my weight and now.... ugggh

With certain circumstances, anything can be triggered. In situations like that, you should always opt out. Immersing yourself in a situation where you are recreating a traumatic time can be in fact, traumatic. So, don’t be afraid to remove yourself from the situation.

Have you thought about talking with someone who can better understand your situation? If not, you should. It seems like you have pushed the issue out of your mind, and simply not handled it. If this is indeed true, then you will need to tackle the issue with someone who specializes in the treatment of your issue. Do not let this become an issue again.
