Anorexia

Posted by anaforlife @anaforlife, Nov 17, 2011

I have been looking all over this forum and couldn’t fid one single post about anorexia so I figured the mental health section would suit it best. I just feel a bit alone in my life as far as an eating disorder goes and was wondering if anyone else suffers from either anorexia or bulimia?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Mental Health group.

I don’t have an eating disorder but I have a friend that is anorexic. The doctor told her that she could die if she does not gain weight. She is about 80 lbs. and is addicted to exercise, so when she does eat she burns it off and can’t seem to gain weight. Are getting any help from a professional?

No I’m not. I have no health insurance so I only go to the doctor when I really need
It since I pay out of pocket.

Your name makes you sound like you are pro ana. is this true? If so getting better is going to take an entire change of attitude.

I’ve been in and out of treatment for anorexia/EDNOS for a long time. You’re not alone and recovery is possible with time, patience, and lots of time challenging and facing fears, with lots of support though!!!

Its so hard when everyone in your life you thought you could trust just up and leaves and you are left with no support 🙁 but I’m trying 🙂

I’m 14 and I have had an eating disorder for as long as I can remember. I went to treatment but the place was HORRIBLE. Treatment is more like a prison than anything else. Doctors really don’t understand ED’s at all!
