    I'm not a troll. I wish I was because this wouldn't be true.

    I started starving myself in primary 1 and when the school noticed my mum let them have someone watch over me and make sure that I ate, which meant that I didn't have a choice.

    It worked okay for a couple of years until I hit puberty at eight.

    I started to gain weight easily and, although I was already being picked on for being weird and not fitting in, it all got worse. My hormones were going nuts, I was on and off meds to try and help, my body was turning against me. My skin was awful.

    I'm 18 now and it's only just stopped. I went through a period of starving and/or purging, then binge and purge and back to purging. Christmas sent me on a binge, but I really want to lose weight before I go to uni which means a big diet starting the day after new year.

    My hormones still aren't normal and the weight will be hard to lose, but I'm worried that I'll end up starving myself or purging or binge/purging again. I'm too shy to go to the doctor for help and I don't have the money for any weight loss meds or anything. My family go from bugging me about losing weight to calling me far in five minutes.

    I dont' want to end up that ill little kid again, but I can't stay like this.


    Go to a doctor, it will be hard to recover by yourself. Don't be shy about it, it is important that you get this seen too xx
