    How's the Noodlyness?

    That's a lot of people not doing their job! :eek: I guess I'd say go back to the main person you're seeing with your list of symptoms, and really focus on what's affecting you and what you think needs to change. I find in general that the more blunt and up front you are about what you want done, the better.

    Might also be worth asking other people with similar ED symptoms about what helps/helped them too? You have to be careful with comparing/sort of competing with other people's symptoms sometimes, but if you approach it in the right way I think peer support can be really helpful with most illnesses.

    Maybe make a thread on here asking for advice from people who've already recovered? I think you're right to be concerned about the effect of talking about this stuff on your friend, but remember too that she'd want to help if she knew you were suffering the same way as her. Definitely a tricky one, but if you ask her what she's comfortable with talking to you about, and both of you are aware of how good/bad you're feeling then hopefully you can both get something out of sharing your problems.

    You're absolutely not a waste of anything. :hugs:

    Ah the excitement of hospital.
    Aye I know. I absolutely love it.

    How's the hospital? Are you coping? Finding it helpful?
    I hate it. I want to go home and I'll be asking the doctor soon can I get home treatment. Spent most of yesterday crying but I did try today with the group activities this afternoon (I was ill this morning.)
