A year off/ED watch


    By Wednesday I will have finished my a levels - I have also been struggling with anorexia. I few months ago I felt so crap I thought I wouldn't be able to do my exams, I got it stuck in my head that I'd never get better. Since then I've been seeing the GP every two weeks and I'm on the road to recovery. I'm so pleased I didn't give up on myself and stayed at college. YOU CAN GET BETTER TOO, you just have to believe in yourself.
    It's good you're seeing a counsellor, that's positive. Try and set yourself little targets which are managable, like eating things you previously avoided. (for me that meant adding milk to my porridge for breakfast instead of water). It's about breaking the habit of your diet, take each day at a time.
    Personally, I think you should go to college next year. If you stayed at home you would get lonely and this may push your depression further.
    Remember you need as much support from your friends and family as possible, so don't feel guilty about asking for this!
    I hope you get better...remember, believe in yourself!
