My hair falling out!!!!???!!! - March 15th 2013, 03:46 PM

Yes i know.. You are probably getting a bit annoyed with my posting but seriously... I know i had a slight problem and that my disorder is getting out of control but really?? I knew that being anorexia has this affect but I'm not sure if i have it. Yes in some senses i like having an eating disorder purely because i feel free and i don't have anything making my stomach bigger than it is!!.... Is there anything i can do to stop my hair falling out.. Coz i basically woke up with a small clump of my hair on my pillow. Ni i have not told anyone yet.. And I'm too embarrassed to, what should i do tho??

Reread what I said on my post on your last message. It's not gonna get better until you tell someone. The only way to stop your hair falling out is to eat and give your body what it needs.

I agree with telling someone. Anorexia is a serious illness, and you are not anorexic unless you are below 15% of what a healthy body weight is. So if you are in fact that underweight, then it's critical that you tell someone because otherwise you will experience all kinds of unpleasant symptoms.
There are a few reasons for your hair falling out like that though, usually it's more gradual and not just big clumps that will fall out. The best thing to do is go and see a doctor since none of us are professionals.

And here you are living, despite it all.

^^Theyre getting rid of the specific weight requirement because its bull. You can have an anorexic mindset regardless of your weight. The only requirement for eating disirders should be a disordered view about food. Don't use a criteria to exclude yourself from having a problem.

Hair falling out= not eating enough. You don't need to lose ANY weight to suffer the effects of starvation. You can starve yourself to death without losing weight. Trust me on this one please. Get help you beautiful girl <3

Take as long as you need.
