Hey ,

I'm having a rough time with eating. I was doing so well up until now and then since I have had a massive fall out with my so called school friends that has left me suicidal and I just want to go back to eating only chewing gum. I don't wNt to eat proper food.

Love from Meera

Random.swirls,
I am sorry to hear about your rough time. It cannot be easy. In order for you to get better, you are going to have to eat. I suffer from Anxiety (which I have had since I was in my early teens), and I know how it feels to be in the situation you are in. I am here to help you and support you in any way I possibly can.

Thank you,
SoulHelper

Hi there Meera,

I'm sorry things are difficult right now, I know how devastating it can be to lose the support of friends, for whatever reason. And I know that, when things get really tough in life, it's easy to fall back into disordered eating. It's a coping mechanism, a very unhealthy one. So I urge you to try to find healthier ways to cope with these feelings. Keep a journal, take up a new hobby, try to distract yourself in ways that aren't relying on disordered eating. Also, if you are contemplating suicide, please call a hotline or in some way reach out for help. You deserve to feel so much better than you are feeling now.

If you need to talk more, feel free to post more here or send me a pm, okay?


So I will find my fears and face them
I will cower like a dog
I will kick and scream
I will kneel and plead
I'll fight like hell to hide that I'm givin' up

Meera,

Not eating isn't going to make anything better, if anything it will make things worse. Your body can't function properly without the correct nutritional intake. This means that everything negative you're feeling will be amplified because your brain doesn't have sufficient nutrients to work correctly, and stop these bad thoughts.

You'll also feel weak, which then makes you want to sit around and do nothing because you don't have the energy to go out and see friends, etc. Again, feeding your depression more and more, this isn't a good thing to do.

Look in the mirror! You clearly are not fat, even your doctor has said this, in order to improve you need to believe, that will help tremendously.

If you want to talk, please feel free to VM/PM me, we can talk about anything,
I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

Best of luck,
~Jack.


PM/VM Me if you need any sort of help, I welcome ANYONE who wants to talk.
