Hey guys,I've been realllllyyy struggling recently with my intake (since exams I guess), but its got a lot worse over the last couple weeks. I don't know who to turn to or what to say to them.I have been skipping meals again, counting calories and starting to exercise more. I don't have access to scales so idk what my weights doing and the last 3 drs appointments I have said no to being weighed. I have a cap on the number of calories I allow myself to eat and am eating under it at the moment due to only eating one meal a day. At the moment I would say that I'm averaging at between 500-700kcal a day :/
My parents are unaware and they seem to be fine with me cutting back my portions, they haven't said anything over the last week and have let me decide how much I eat, so I've pretty much been eating half of what they have.I have ZERO energy, feel dizzy all the time, my periods become really irregular (I can't remember the last time I had a 'normal' one - sorry if TMI!),
I'm struggling to sleep because I feel I have to exercise at night but I doubt I'm really losing muhc weight because just before exams I went throuhg a period of binge eating so I recon my weights stayed the same from before that meaning it won't seem like I've lost anything to my GP.I feel really weak and light headed a lot, and I dont know what to say to anyone. I had an assessment with adult services but they calculated my BMI wrong becaise they put my height as smaller than I am and I didn't correct them as I wanted to get away with it, so they think my weights okay for my height.98% of me wants to relapse and curl up into a ball for the rest of my life.
Depression has hit me hard again. I don;t want my parents to find out and am scared my GP will tell them (despite being 18) Any advice is appreciated! xx
I can't carry on like this... Watch

Ok, you've realized that you have a problem and that's the first step to getting better. As you're 18 your GP will be bound by confidentiality laws. The only way he can tell anyone would be if you are going to harm yourself or someone else - and even then he won't tell your parents if you don't want them told.
I would say that you need to go talk to your GP and don't hide things. If it's easier maybe write down what's wrong so you can hand it to him and not leave anything out. Make sure to include that adult services worked out your BMI wrong and you do need help.
