Default Failing To Recover

I've Been Suffering From Anorexia For About A Year Now. It Started At School, The Place I Cannot Wait To Leave, Where I Was Given The Usual Treatment By Other People... And My Chest Was Quite Big Then, For A 14 Year Old, So I Got A Lot Of Shit For It. So Basically I Started To Only Eat Every Other Day. And It's Continued Up To This Point. I'll Eat One Day, Then Cut Food Out Entirely The Next.
Just A While Ago I Finally Went To The Doctor, With A Lot Of Help From My Family And Friends. But I Also Did It Because I Realised What I Was Doing To Myself. My Doctor Is Really Nice And Understanding, And She Told Me To Just Try And Eat Everyday. Well, I Gave It A Go But I've Failed At That.
And What I Hate Is Having To See My Mum Worried..
But Even If I Get A Full Stomach After Eating, I Feel Repulsive. To Make Things Worse, It Makes Me Feel... Well... I Guess You Sort Of Could Call It 'Depressed'. It Gets Me In Moods, I Feel Down And I Shut Out The World, Especially My Friends. I Get Too Short With Them And Blame Them For All The Wrong Things. But They Know What I'm Like, Thankfully. And I Love Them So Much For Putting Up With Me.
Anyway, I Discovered That I'm Just Under 7 Stone, At 5'2"ish. My BMI Is Dangerously Low, And I've Been Classed As Dangerously Underweight By My Doctor. So I'd Just Like To Get To Know You Other People With Similar Problems, Perhaps?

Oh, Yes, And On Thursday I Am Going To See A Counsellor/Psychiatrist Person, Then I Have Another Doctor's Appointment On Friday. Hopefully I've Put At Least A Little Bit Of Weight On.

Thank You.

Missusabii, I also don't suffer from anorexia. But I have struggled with bulimia for a lot of years. Eating disorders are very very dangerous. I know that starving yourself feels like it is the answer, but it isn't. I understand the feeling that when you put food into your body you can feel disgusted. If you really can't force yourself to eat something everyday, the please look into drinking Ensure or Boost. They are nutritioal supplements. This is sopmething that I have had to force myself to do sometimes.

Please don't let your weight get so low that you end up in the hospital. When your BMI gets so low you body starts to turn on itself. You can go into organ failure..not a good thing. Your body needs and deserves nutrition. Try the drinks and taking a multivitamin also wouldn't hurt. Even if it is a childrens vitamin..which might be a better way for you to take one at first anyway.

I hope that you make headway with this problem. A lot of people don't realize the pain that you are going through with self image and possibly depression. Keep up the fight. :D

Abii,

You know from my Pizza Evening Display (heh heh) that I don't struggle with weight issues, but I just wanted to remind you that I'm here for you, and I'm gonna get you through this.

You are beautiful, Abi. Keeping trying, I'm behind you all the way.

Kayte. You're A Bottomless Pit. :] Bless Ya.

I Wish I Could Be As Carefree About What I Eat, Like You.
You're Bootiful Too, My Luff. And I'm So Glad We're Here For Each Other. <3

By The Way. We Should Never Talk Of Our Too-Much-Cheese Evening.
I Felt So Ill. :']

Perhaps ease your body back into eating more with soups and juice, and Ensure like Iris said. All that would be easy on your stomach. Do ya think that could help?

I Tried Doing That For A While.
I Still Felt Like An Elephant After Eating Nothing But A Bowl Of Soup On A Day That I Normally Wouldn't Eat Anything.

Right Now I Regret Eating My Dinner... I've Got A Full Stomach And It Makes Me Want To Stay Sat Down, Hiding My Stomach All Evening.
Which Is Pretty Much What I've Been Doing Since I Ate..

I Feel Like I Want To Be Sick.
I Want To Make Myself Sick. But I Can't Do It...

I'm Having A Pretty Bad Evening. :/

Don't make yourself sick. You need that food IN you, not out. <3

You're not fat Abi. And no one would care if you were. And you're not

You need to eat to be heathly- I know it's hard when you've got so used to eating nothing, but you need it. Think of the good it's doing your body. :]

Just ease yourself into it. I'm glad you've eaten dinner tonight. Keep it up!

<333 My thoughts are with you. x
