My dr was scared also like i took a year away from my shrink and tried to solve my problems on my own without help with self help books and exercise and i just exploded. I saw fear in my drs eyes. Hes worried.
so many people reached out to me as friends or even random nice people and i just run away who on earth does that??? I ruined everything. I am going to be 32 soon. I am gay so no family pressure or anything just wanted a decent life. I keep falling and failing over and over .
Welcome to the boards!
I don't think it's weird to run away when someone tries to help. I didn't let anyone help me for 6 years.
I was scared and I didn't know who I would be without the eating disorder.
I also tried to get better on my own. I couldn't do it and I hit bottom-over and over.
What's stopping you from reaching out to your therapist?
Are you scared of getting better (like me)?
