I've been "recovered" for almost a year now. Still, almost every day I have the internal fight. I want to relapse, it would feel so good and right and it would be comforting and everything would be easier. But if I relapse I will hurt my family and I can't relapse if I want to be able to go to college in the fall. I don't know how much longer I can keep eating.
Please don’t relapse. You’re so much better than that!!! You can overcome this, I promise. Recovery is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, but I don’t regret it. But I promise, you’ll regret the relapse.
i had problems with self harm, suicidal thoughts, depression, anxiety, bi polar, borderline personality disorder. i have always had a bit of an obsession with being thin, but it has happened so fast, i have become obsessed. i don't view myself as fat or skinny, i want to be perfect i am 4 11 and a half and i weigh 103.5 pounds i work out, every time i have a problem, i need to go run a mile. i feel as if i will be happy when i weigh 96 but i am scared that i will keep loosing after that
If you’re scared of losing, you need to talk to someone. I cannot stress it enough that the only way you can overcome this is if you talk to someone
It's eating me up inside (excuse the pun) that I can't tell someone about my eating disorder. I have this friend that tells me everything, even about his dissociative identity disorder but I can't bring myself to tell him about my anorexia. I'm so ashamed and scared that he may get angry at me, notice/judge my body or whether I eat during a day or worst, if he tells anyone. I just wish I had someone to turn to when I'm feeling like hurting myself.
If you haven’t judged him for his illness, I doubt he’ll judge you for yours. Have some faith in your friend. Try to tell him.
i have BED. i've gained weight again. im afraid of seeing people i havent seen for like a month cause they will notice and probably say something. i really dont know what to do, i want to feel comfortable in my own skin but i can't seem to do it.
Have you thought about going to a dietician? I know the therapist I go to works with one…. So maybe you could find someone who will listen, and also help you lose weight?
Kathy has decided that this blog has gotten to be too much for her, and she’s trying to get her life in order. So she will no longer be doing submissions for me. I need someone who is capable to do submissions frequently
If anyone is interested, create your own submission with a picture, and submit it to me. I’ll pick the winner in a few hours.
I'm almost 16, I'm 5'1 and weigh around 95. I don't like how I look at all. I want my thighs to be smaller and I want to be smaller than all of my skinny friends. I know I have a problem and I have told one of my close friends about it and I tried to talk to my mom about it but she just told me I needed to eat. One of my friends noticed I was losing weight and told my mom and I got in trouble because I told her I was going to eat when I was actually starving myself. I want to be 80 ponds.
Oh my! You’re so tiny though! But I understand. Maybe just work on toning your body instead of losing weight? Take vitamins eat lots of really lean meat and do some sit ups and stuff and you’ll be golden (:
How many times do we have to tell you that we will not answer questions like these. There is a tab over there > that will calculate your BMI. Do not waste our time with these questions. We will not tell you if you’re fat or not.
Hi! So, I wanted to ask if you knew of some dietary supplement you can take to gain more weight? I've asked friends & they just say ''eat more!'' which is't helping as I currently have a damn nervous tick whenever I eat..But I figured there must be something out there that can help you gain weight ('cause there's lots to loose weight). If you or any follower know of something, I'd be grateful!
I know exactly how you feel about gaining everything back and that's exactly what I'm struggling with right now. I'm trying to keep reminding myself that this is the only way for me to be happy again, and that we have to recover our metabolism again before we can even think about going back down. I do hope it won't take too long though. Stay strong!!! <3
No offence & all but lately ive noticed .. What's the point of having this blog if all you're going to say to EVERY question is "you should tell a doctor" I know you woulfnt exactly know but, atleast you can give advice & support not to feel a certain way .. Then really, this is just a blog to direct you to the obvious.
I say that for most questions because most questions say the same thing, just in a a different way. Eating disorders are not something you mess around with. If you want help recovering, the only thing you can do is tell someone because it’s pretty much impossible to recover on your own.
I am 5'0 ft and I weight 97 lbs. I feel ubber fat and I think if I was 87 I would be prettier and perfect. Please help me, I don't want to loose myself anymore in this, but the lower I go, the more I want to loose. I hate this.
You need to talk to a parent or guardian. They can get you the help you need.
overexcersizing is purging??? when does it become "over" excersizing?
Some consider it a form of purging, yes. Because you burn a ton of calories and it can sometime make you vomit. It becomes over exercising when you know your body really cannot handle any more, but you continue anyways. Or when you get nauseous or faint. Pretty much any exercise that is too strenuous or vigorous for your body.
Im to the point where i dont even want help, but i know i need it. I feel so lost, so disgusted with myself, the only thing i want is to be skinny and healthy, but it feels like i can only have one of those at a time. ive tried everything, starving, throwing up, drugs, cutting, dieting..but nothing seems to work. i dont know what else to do, i dont feel pretty anymore. please help.
Really the only thing you can do is talk to someone. It’s impossible to overcome this on your own.
I was concerned that I was developing an eating disorder because I started to feel like I didn't deserve food and I didn't deserve the weight that I was at. I talked to my doctor and she said "You seem to have a good handle on this". I still feel like shit and am getting worse but I don't want to go back just to be told the same thing. Advice? (and sorry for making you read all of that)
I think you shoul go talk to a psychiatrist who is trained to deal with eating disorders and tell them everything. If you think you’re developing one, you need to get help ASAP.
I overcame Anorexia. I'm in therapy. I recently told my boyfriend. He said he's here for me, no matter what. I feel fat sometimes, but I am able to resist the urge of not eating/purging. I only eat when I feel my stomach growl, and I went from 5 ft 4, and 93lbs to 5 ft 5 and 117. I feel beautiful.
You are beautiful for being able to deal with this disease. Kudo’s to you, love (:
I saw photos of him and his new girlfriend on facebook. To my surprise, she isn’t as railthin as I thought. In fact, I am probably at least 10 lbs lighter than her. But she is still beautiful and she’s his girlfriend. What am I? Nothing, alone, and starving myself for reasons I can no longer remember.
