What do these symptoms mean?

Hi, I'm a thirteen year old Australian female who has been getting alarming symptoms lately that I feel may point towards an eating disorder. I was 64 kilos at one stage and I now vary from 55-59 kilos when I check. My issue is that some days I can eat fine but others I will eat but feel really sick afterwards and sometimes I can't even eat at all. This happens with all foods I try. People have been commenting on me losing weight lately and I can't fit in some of my shorts. My Mum is getting a bit suspicous and worried but I don't want to tell my family because they take it too far thinking that I'm depressed and purposely trying to lose weight and will try to make me move schools and that. It has happened to me a year or two ago and I just merely avoided it but now it has returned and I just don't know who to turn to. I don't think I can go to the doctors alone without a parents considering my age and all my advisors at the school are friends with my Mum who works there. I tried a Councillor once but they were really no help at all. Does anyone know what may be wrong, what's causing it and how to treat it or any other advice at all? Thank-you.

Re: What do these symptoms mean?

Why do you think that some days you can eat fine and other days you can't?
Are you purposely doing it to lose weight? Or is it because you want to experience the numbing feeling or high of not eating?

Not eating is a coping mechanism just like self-harm. It keeps you from thinking about your problems. Can you explain a little more?
