Panic at the thought of food - April 24th 2009, 05:59 PM

So, my mum doesnt know about my ED, but it's hitting rock bottom again, and she's begining to notice i'm not eating, though thinks its just stress. So she's brought loads of cakes, and pastries, and things. Getting fish and chips, making a roast at the weekend.

I KNOW she's doing it to be kind, but i dont know what to do. Just thinking about it is sending me into such a panic. It feels like i'm being trapped, the thought of eating it makes me physically sick. Yet i dont know how to get her to leave me alone. I've spent the last fortnight *eating meals at friends* or *studying late at college* or *having migraines* but she cant realise anythings up.

I just need to get rid of this feeling of suffocation whenever i think of food.

Because any food is still food. Any food that I eat, has to come back out. And she wont listen. How do i explain that i'm not dieting, dont have an ed, and yet dont want to eat her treat?

Would you be able to see a doctor and see if they can make your Mom understand? If you can get your Mom to see things for what they are, the two of you will be able to work things out so they you don't have to feel scared and suffocated on such a frequent basis.

Sometimes it takes more than just you for you parents to listen, as frustrating as that may be. It's hard for them to grasp the idea that their child is hurting or in a difficult situation.

No. I've kept this hidden from her for 6 years, it's not coming out now. Even the doctors dont know. Well, they do as such, but not totally. I never speak of it, but it's on my records.

I just, need a way of trying to lower the panicky feeling i get. It feels like it's suffocating me.
