Exclamation Scared out of my mind - April 8th 2013, 11:23 PM

I've never had anyone to turn to, and recently I haven't felt the need, or want to eat. I'm currently 5 foot 4 and weigh around (edited)pounds. I lost (edited) pounds in the last week or so from eating a very small dinner every day and that's it. Even then I feel I don't want to eat that.

People at school say I'm too skinny, but at home I'm told that I'll just get fat and that I'm nothing but ugly. I just wish there were a way to change that. How do I open up to someone? Who do I turn to when I feel like I can't trust anyone? Will this continue until I waste away into nothing...?

I'm so scared right now...

Hey there,

I'm really glad that you're taking the first step to open up to us. That takes a lot of strength, so congrats on that. <3

Have you tried opening up to an adult you trust? Very often, the first place that we turn is our friends in school, however, they very often cannot fully understand or don't take the situations seriously. Somebody like a teacher, guidance counselor, aunt, neighbor, etc, somebody that is an adult that you trust can be a great resource. They can help you find the resources, such as therapists, doctors, etc, that you need.

I'm also sorry about your home life. This is not fair to you to be called such names. You do not deserve that, so please, don't believe those nasty things that you are being called. You are a great person, I promise you, and things WILL get better.

Stay strong,

I'm trying to open up... but it's really hard. I don't know how to really, I've only recently started opening up to people and letting anyone in. This place is the first place I've even slightly opened up about it. And that's because I've been poking around invisible for awhile, so I kinda trust the environment.

It's really hard... and I had a breakdown today. Didn't eat anything except a tangerine. I really don't know how to cope, or anything. I'm scared out of my mind...
