But i fear that she'll tell my parents, and thyll send me to some clinic or something, and I'll have to eat chemicals. and that's not really on my to-do list for my senior year of high school.
does anyone else feel this way? because i literally feel so alone.
It seems like you are overanalyzing your situation.
Being weight conscious,in and of itself,does not usually qualify as an eating disorder.It lies somewhere in the frequency of thought and other psychological patterns of behavior.
If your guidance counselor involves your parents,realize it will be for your best interest,in an effort to help you.
Worse case scenario;you have to be admitted....you can always tell them that you prefer a vegitarian meal,as you are pre-occupied with living an organic lifestyle.
You are not alone;believe me.
