Oh right. I thought I’d wait for them to contact me to tell me they’re ready. I keep procrastinating calling them even about the referral. I promise I will get it done tomorrow.
Here if you need to chat.
Ah sorry. 10 days is impressive though. What have the doctors said, is your health at risk? And no understand, it is very difficult when you’ve been suffering it for such a long time.
I will try but the GP’s can’t diagnose it I’ve heard and it has to be a psychiatrist :/ and that’s going to take long
How's your day been?
So I don't have a formal diagnosis for an ED, though the behaviours I exhibit are what you'd call textbook anorexia and bulimia. In terms of health risks, had a few scary moments, but nothing major as of yet.
How's your day been?
It’s been difficult
I had an appointment with the doctor today and I told her to refer to me a eating disorder specialist and she said she’ll refer to me psychotherapy instead and I said isn’t it better to put me with a specialist and she said “if they think you need a specialist then they will tell us” urgh why won’t some doctors listen. I’m already getting therapy!
Sorry to hear that your GP isn't understanding what's going on.
Any update on the vaccine?
I just received a call from an eating disorder service, my gp referred me to. They asked me what my usual day of eating is like, my weight, height and she checked for bmi and it said I’m at a healthy weight and she was surprised. I’m 74kg and I’m 5’8. And I told her I’ve been eating like this for 10 years and it’s because of the trauma I experienced. I told her the trauma. And she said admin will call me soon. I hope they can help me with my eating habits. She asked me if I purged aswell or did anything after. I said no I don’t do that. Yes I binge a lot but my main problem is how I normally eat. Because I eat very bad foods and I’m so attached to them. And eating unhealthy food all day isn’t an eating disorder and I feel like that is my biggest problem. I want to be able to eat healthy and not be so tempted to eat unhealthy food. I hope they can help with that.
