just depressed really - December 8th 2017, 07:01 PM

I am not going to be one of those people who rambles on about my life story.

I have struggled with anorexia for about year just over now I have lost everything from my full time job to friendships relationships etc.

I have recently turned 21 November and I feel like shit I am working part time 12 hours a week at this horrible supermarket. I want to be doing well for myself in life but I feel this eating disorder has took everything away from me I had a great job I had to reign my only 2 friends are very unreliable I wish I had better friends on my birthday one of them decided to leave me in the street.

I do struggle with tons of other mental health problems but I don't feel the need to list them here. I am so lonely and depressed I feel like my eating disorder has isolated me from the world.

I want to learn how to drive I actually have my theory in a few days but I have stopped revising because I always fail cause I am failure I have learning disabilities I can't do anything right. I would love more friends but I have been seriously abused my whole life I have struggles with people even though I am very good socially I lack the confidence.
I would like to get back in to full time work but every job I try for his either far away ( I can't drive) or they reject me because I suck. I feel like this eating disorder has been the nail in my coffin my life is unfixable I don't know what to do anymore.

I am considering starting kick boxing in January I think that will be awesome for me mentally. Would be nice to pass my theory in a few days but I wont because I never do I have tried countless of times I have even got in an argument with the lady at the desk telling her how I feel it's wrong expecting people with mental illness to do this test who can't do it.

I just feel like I am in a whole from where my eating disorder has left me I have lost everything I hd a great life before all this well it was decent I was doing well for myself now I am a mess.

Hi Justin,

I'm so sorry to hear that you're still struggling a lot. I agree when it comes to feeling as though your eating disorder is sort of 'isolating' yourself from the world. I felt that way as well, and it is difficult to stop feeling that way.

I highly recommend that you do start kickboxing! It's such a great activity to get out any kind of emotions that you're feeling. It will help with any urges as well. I started going to the gym and I've noticed a huge change in my moods from being always down, to being normal, and I find that it helps with my urges as well.

I really hope that you start feeling better soon. No one deserves to feel this way.

Stay Strong,

“You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”
