I told someone and... it got worse? watch

    I recently realised my eating habits aren't healthy and I'd relapsed into an eating disorder after a year and a half of being healthy. Since I'm mature and sick of it ruining my life, I decided to tell someone that I wasn't coping very well and they are very supportive and nice about it.
    I felt that telling someone would give me some motivation to get myself back on track because I would want to get better to please them.

    It has, however, done the exact opposite. I am living off less than 800 calories per day and running every evening. I lie about the food I've eaten and now I'm dizzy and tired. I know it's wrong but I can't help it. I tried to eat a proper meal and cried to the point of purging it up again. My friends keep expressing their concern for my eating habits but I can't tell them how I'm feeling!

    Do I go back to the person I told and tell them I'm not coping? I'm so scared.

    I think that you go back to that person and talk to them again. Do they know that this is a relapse? Is the person that you have told a friend or relative that is near by and able to help?
