It's back and I'm honestly happy - December 12th 2013, 11:42 PM

Let's start from the beginning since I was 15 years old I've had an eating disorder that is off and on and I am 22 years old right now. It started after I stopped cutting I started eating less and less until I was eating one meal a day that was not a good amount of food it was too little amount of food. Anyways when I was 19 it got really bad and I ended up going to a therapist that specialized in eating disorders and I was diagnosed as ednos. Then I got on pills that made me eat and gain a shit load of weight for a year until another doctor took me off of the pill. So now because of those pills I am obese(I'm not joking doctors say so). Anyways I'm on adderal for ADD and that can suppress your appetite anyways I am now only eating one meal a day again or just very tiny bits at meals. Like yesterday I ate hash browns and half an omelette for breakfast then I had a In N' Out burger for dinner. Today I had a large Jumba juice that lasted me like a couple of hours, then I just had Chinese but didn't eat all of it. My stomach is growling saying I'm hungry but I refuse to eat anymore today I've eaten enough. I'll stop once I get down to my goal weight. I need to loose all this weight its gross and disgusting. I don't know why I posted this but I did.

Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Hey there,

You posted this because you need help, and you know you do. I apologize for how late this reply is, as the holidays have distracted me.

I would highly recommend you see that specialist team again. If you believe that a medication is making you gain that much weight, you need to let them know. They can take you off that medication so that you can be able to find a stable weight. You also need help getting a healthy meal plan so that you are getting enough nutrients in a day. If you need to lose weight, they can help you do it in a healthy, sustainable, and will not include the unhealthy behaviors you have been engaging in. Instead, it'll be a full, healthy diet, eating three or more meals a day, that'll include exercise.

A lot of the disordered behavior may come from other issues, so I'd also recommend you bring any behaviors you are engaging in up to your counselor/psychologist if you are seeing one. They can help you manage the triggers and emotions that are related to what you are doing.

Good luck. Let me know if you have anymore questions.
