    This thread has gone a bit off the boil tonight! I know we can feel angry when others are seemingly 'interfering' - but a lot of the time it's just them not understanding, and being frustrated themselves that they can't help you or make you feel better. People just worry so very much.

    I know, but then I feel frustrated myself since they're overlay exaggerating it all. I just sit there shaking my head going "nah it's not bad" which is true, it's not. It's trying to tell them that, is what makes it so frustrating. Then snapping at them when I know they just want to help.

    It's too confusing

    The irony being, everyone sees what you're doing, but they're just too afraid to mention it.
    And then there are people who just come right out with it.:mad: My so-called "eating disorder" was related to having a stomach problem, which made it so easy to unintentionally lose weight. It just so happened at the time that I had depression.

    For some reason, everything that has happened in the last 2 years has suddenly caught up with me and I am finding it almost impossible to move around or eat. I am so exhausted but have to go to work . Unless I have some underlying health problem I guess this is a relapse? Maybe it's just a cold. Anyway hope you're getting on alright here

    I'm killing everyone around me as well as myself :'( I dont want to be here anymore, I just cant live like this! Is there any free helplines that anyone would recommend. I feel like I need to talk to someone but I dont feel 'ill'/thin enough to actually get help. I feel like a doctor would laugh, and that would mean telling my grandparents, because my doctors is in the middle of nowhere and i dont want to do that to them. I cant carry on like this. I dont know what to do anymore :'(

    :hugs:

    I was going to suggest Samaritans until I checked, and it's not free to call them. If you're still at school then Childline or if you're at uni then Nightline ? I don't know if Nightline is free btw.

    Or if all else fails, us ?

    I've recognised you're in a bit of a dark place, 05autyt, and have private messaged.

    Please make use of my contact details if you need to, silence is when you hear your pain loudest.

    I don't /think/ nightline is free, but if you're on contract and get like minutes you can use to landlines, then it sort of is.

    Hi there everyone,

    i have posted on here before, but i shall start from the beginning so some of you can understand what im doing

    i am a fully recovered anorexic studying medicine at the Uni of Cambridge. i have recently started a youtube blog where i try to answer questions people have about eating disorders which can be found here : www.youtube.com/smetin92

    anyways, the reason why i am posting this thread is because i need your help. i am going to post a video this eating disorders awareness week where i need input from people suffering/suffered with an eating disorders (OF ANY KIND) or issues with body image. i would like you to make a video where you say the following, or write it in a piece of paper in front of a video camera (it does not have to include your face if you dont want it to!):

    0) Your name (if you want to be anon that is ok) - say "my name is ".....""
    1) i have/had an eating disorder
    2) i would then like you to summarise your eating disorder in 1-2 sentences
    3) explain in 1-2 sentences what you want out of life
    4) if you are a male please say/write : "Males can have eating disorders too"
    5) Then, say an inspirational line saying that eating disorders can be beaten - give it some POW
    6) finally say/write "be aware"

    If you could do this an email it to [email protected] (i know) before mid-february i would be most grateful. thank you so much

    Since coming to uni this year my eating behaviours have been awful. When I was 13 I was told that I have bulimic tendencies and referred to another doctor but nothing was done. Everyone around me knew what was going on and they're the ones that got me back to eating properly, but now I've moved away from them there's nobody to control what I'm doing. My Mum rings me every day to check that I've been eating and I just lie to her. I'm not sure what eating disorder I have and I'm too scared to go to the doctor for it again, but I know that classification isn't the real issue it's the fact that it's happening I'm not underweight at all, my BMI is 24 so people tend to think that I'm healthy. I rarely purge but I'll often binge, and then starve myself because I feel so guilty about it. I haven't slept because I binged last night and didn't want to purge or starve myself so I went for a 6 hour walk to try and counteract it but I still feel like I've let myself down. I'm just so fed up of being like this now, I want to be normal and for food to be a normal part of my life like it is for everyone else but that will never happen Even when I was eating normally I was a calorie counter and refused to eat more than my BMR plus exercise. I broke down and told my boyfriend the other day, he's long distance and he hasn't been that much help. I can just tell that he doesn't know what to do and I feel so guilty for telling him about it because I don't want people to worry about me

    I've been on Olanzapine for a week now, and today for the first time I have gained weight by just over a KG. I was really unhappy after, but I realise I should just view it as the first step in the long road to recovery Also finally have a meal plan from the dietician (I shouldn't be complaining, I bet most people would be happy being told they have to have dessert every night!)

    Well done! And try not to feel bad, what feels like a huge step to our kind is only a small leap to human kind and the rest of reality. Most people fluctuate a kg here and there all the time without even knowing!
