So here’s the problem that I’ve been having a lot lately , here’s one real example… Today I have consumed 502 calories and my carers don’t really give a **** and I’ve just only just been told that I need help because this is not normal (to have 502 calories a day) !?! So ye will speak to someone bout that but I just don’t think they should be so chill bout it and it’s just making things worse! 😭 what do I do ?

Sounds like they are arranging for you to speak someone. What more do you expect them to do? They can't exactly force feed you.

You want to be NG fed? It wouldn't be your carers making that decision anyway.

I’m assuming that you use paid for carers. But honestly I do not see the issue. These people are only trying to help you out here and their entire decision is wholly based on limited information which you have given. Perhaps you can assist them by making things easier for them overall instead of moaning on here for no reason. They would be in danger of breaking the care industry laws if they did not remain professional and unbiased when faced with such a serious but fixable issue. Not to mention the risk of suddenly being sacked. If you have a undiagnosed or diagnosed health issue, then paid for carers are legally required to tell the company.

You have said in your other posts that your doctor has said you are a healthy weight so clearly no one is going to NG feed you. You should try and get help for the disordered eating though because things may well get worse. You don't want to still be doing this 10 years from now.

Carers aren’t there to treat your mental health problems, assuming you are talking about a support worker as opposed to guardian, their role is to facilitate choice and promote wellbeing. Talking generally, it wouldn’t necessarily be appropriate for them to put a massive focus how much a client was eating, especially when the client was aware of the associated dangers.

I don’t understand, in your opening post you seem to be complaining about your calorie restriction not being acknowledged, but in this post you are complaining about being encouraged to eat.

None of this makes any sense. You're simultaneously claiming that nobody notices or cares when you don't eat and that you almost got to the point of being force fed a few months ago. They can't both be true.

Nobody's going to be able to give you any useful advice while every post you make is a different and inconsistent fantasy. If you want actual advice about a real situation then you need to post the truth about that situation, even if it isn't as trendy/edgy/whatever as you'd like.

Well, I don't either. But when the poster is unhappy, quite possibly mentally ill, and at the bottom end of the age range here, I try to give them the benefit of the doubt.

You already know from your doctor that this is not normal, so go back to your GP or specialist.
