Okay, this is my problem. I am a 16/f, and I think I may have an eating disorder or may be close to it.
I am small for my age (4'11), so losing weight at all can be dangerous for me. I know that it is not healthy
for me to starve myself, but that knowledge doesn't change my perception of my body - I see myself as fat -
even though people call me tiny all of the time. Anyway...as I said, I think I have a problem, and I want to stop,
but I just don't know how to come about that. I can't mention this to my family (especially my parents) or friends
right now because I just don't think they would understand. The person I would want to talk to, if anyone, would be
my gym teacher. She is young and understanding and I feel like she is the best person to talk to because she can relate
to people my age easily. The thing is, HOW do I talk to her? I'd have no idea what to say to her. Do I just come right
out and say "I think I have an eating disorder"? What's the easiest and best way to tell someone? I want to stop starving
myself and learn to like myself again, but I don't know how to ask for help. Please help. Any suggestions would be
appreciated.
