In a corner - July 23rd 2011, 12:06 AM

So, as you can tell if you have read my posts, I am thoroughly messed up. But, because I never want to handle it on my own, I tell people. Not professionals, not anyone particularly important. Just very trusted friends. (Usual adult friends)

Well one of my friends lives in Kentucky and I have told her all the stuff I do, and of course usually make her very concerned. But the other day, I admitted to her that I had become bulimic. This absolutely put her over the edge. She was talking to my godfather (another trusted adult friend) about how worried she is and how I need serious help. I mean, she's not wrong, but it all seemed so sudden. So then my Godfather texts me and yells at me for making my Kentucky friend all upset. He's insisting that I get help, or he will do it for me. (His wife has been telling me this for like, forever now.)

So I've got my friend from Kentucky all mad at me and wanting me to go to a doctor, and I've got both of my Godparents insisting I need help. (The bad part of this is that my godparents can actually do something about it because we live in the same city.) And all of this is going on without my parents having any knowledge....help!!?!?!?!?!

If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes.

i think its time to accept help. trust me, i understand that you 've definitely helped so many people, and besides that, i think it'll work out okay for you as well.

please remember that things can definitely get better. there's nothing wrong with accepting help, for it is one definite reliable way for things to get better.

stay strong! we love you!

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!

Like the above poster said, it's not a bad thing to get help. I know at first it can be scary. Going from a small world of people knowing to suddenly seeming like it's common knowledge to all these random strangers. Don't worry though, they are trained to help and they have lots of experience. Tell them you are scared. Tell them everything. The best advice I ever got when I was first pushed into all this help out of no where was to tell them everything. What you don't tell them they will find out for themselves and then it will just be worse. They will help you speak to your parents about it. In my situation they did it for me then did group meetings until I felt comfortable talking about it myself to my parents. Hang in there, the worst part will be over soon!

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

I think that your godparents mean well, they just want you to get help.

I know that it can be scary at first, letting someone else in other than people who really know you, but it's worth it in the end, I know from experience.

If you wanna talk you can PM me, remember that things can always get better <3

Yeah; I think getting help would be a good thing for you. Especially since bulimia is really bad for your heart. Maybe your parents don't have to find out and those people that live near you could just take you 'out'? Support is always good, but sometimes not enough..and when people are willing to help you get help, I'd take it.

searching for myself...
and hugs. mostly hugs.
