Okay, I am a 16/f, and I have anorexia/bulimia. I have been suffering with this problem for the last 7 months, and my parents have known for the last 4 months. When they found out, they put me into a program straight away. Since then, I have been going back and forth between 2 pediatricians, a therapist, I went to a support group for 8 months, and my parents are involved with a support group too. I went to a nutritionist, and I was honest with her -- I told her that I didn't want to change my eating habits. I know that I should feel lucky that I was discovered fairly early into my illness, and that I am receiving all of this help, but I don't consider myself lucky. I hate every second of all of this. I don't want to get better, and I am not ready to change. No one can understand this. The only reason I went to the support group, the nutritionist, my bi-monthly appointments with the doctors, etc., is because my parents are forcing me. You'd think that ever since being under the close eye of these
professionals that I would improve or at least maintain a stable weight, but I haven't. I'm continuing to drop. They have threatened me numerous times that I may have to be checked into the hospital eventually, but it doesn't change my behaviour or feelings about myself. I don't know what to do.
: I am now 17 years old, and I am proud to say that I am a fully recovered anorexic. I was really really sick when I was 14-16, and I managed to get from a 115 pounds to a surprising 68 pounds. I was so obsessed with my weight and I didn't care who or what I hurt, as long as I could be thin. As crazy as it may seem, I actually admired the anorexics and bulimics that I new before my disease. If anybody wants to talk about their problem, I am here to lend out my support and help you through this!! I believe in all of you to get better, because I know you can do i, I did, didn't I?
