Question Tough roller coaster with food - September 22nd 2013, 12:59 AM

I mean, I've always been on the thinner side. But then obviously I hit puberty and things changed. I gained weight from growing, and it shocked me.

When my parents split up, I became a compulsive over eater, and I just ate with my emotions.. Causing me to bloat up like a balloon. But, then I needed to get thin, because I didn't like the way I looked obviously. So, I started to use diets which people with ED's use, and I cut my calories down, and starved.

I prefered having my parents split up so now that their back together my over eating is starting up again.. i've gained a bit, and I don't wanna go down that road again, because I was constantly sick. And I usually cut when my diets don't work because I feel like a failure and i feel fat.

I'm thinking that I kind of want to go to my schools guidance councillor, because she's really nice, and I started talking to her every once in a while in grade 7 (Now i'm in grade 9) and, it was nice to get things off my chest, but i'm afraid shes going to tell my mom.. Should I talk to her, or.. i just don't know, because I don't wanna get fat. That's all I want, is to not get fat.

Hey Emma, I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling with this, but I'm glad you're considering talking to your guidance counselor. The only reason that she would have to tell your mom is if you're in serious immediate danger of harming yourself (suicidal) or if you're sick enough that you need to go to the hospital, so chances are it will stay confidential.
