Does anyone else get uncomfortable... - April 29th 2013, 12:45 PM

when you're offered food?
I'm recovering from anorexia and my boyfriend always points out how I don't eat as much as a normal person(he doesn't know). It's really starting to get to me, but food makes me feel physically sick and disgusting.
How do you handle it?

People don't usually offer me food, and if they do it's like "oh here, I'll get your coffee", but I can definitely understand how this is challenging you, it can be hard especially if you go to dinner at someone's house because then you can't really say no. As you continue recovering I'd imagine it will become easier for you not to be so uncomfortable when someone offers you food. You might want to be talk to your boyfriend though, just let him know exactly why it is that you don't eat as much as other people he knows, that your working on it and recovering, but that it's still a struggle. That way he can be understanding towards it and I'd imagine it'd be a relief for you too because then you won't have to deal with the internal struggle of wanting to be inauspicious and cover up the fact your currently recovering with the fact that you are, in fact, having this struggle.

Thank you, that helps a lot. I will talk to him about this, hopefully he's supportive.

Annoying as it is, it just means he cares. If this isn't the right way to help you, then let him know. Explaining to him about the eating disorder will most likely end in nothing but good things: support and an explanation because he's probably confused

Keep your head up. <3



Take as long as you need.
