Unhappy What's going on? - January 29th 2014, 07:18 PM

2 weeks ago the doctor told me I could possibly have an eating disorder... I can't say whether I do or not, and I don't know if I do. My problem is, I can't eat in front of people. I'm always scared they would judge me. Monday and yesterday I managed to eat in front of people, which was fine. I still can't eat in front of my parents though. I eat in my room alone online to Kyle. He motivates me, but tonight nothing seems to be working... I looked at my dinner, and instantly felt sick. And I really don't feel like eating. Last night after I ate, I felt like I was going to be sick. I'm eating my dinner, and I feel like I'm going to be sick again. I have no idea what to do... I'm worried in case I actually have one, and I'm worried on why I can't eat normally again Any advice would be great

Hey Zara

Unfortunately, I'm not going to be of much use here :P I just wanted to an express a personal interest in this thread because I feel exactly the same. I dont really mind around my family but say, at school, I just cant.

So if anyone had any suggestions I'm all ears too

Hello Zara and Dan,
I may not be of much help here either, but I can say that it doesn't seem like an eating disorder, but it's more with your mind. I used to have the same problem for a while, then it narrowed down to just girls(not that I didnt want to humiliate myself, but it just turned me off... alot)... for years. But slowly by slowly with the help of my friends(I spent most time with guys, so after a while it was only girls), I got rid of it.
As for you, Zara, I suggest you not worrying so much about it and not pushing yourself hard. When you feel you can eat, then eat, you need to keep your nutrition and energy and those other biological stuff up(lol sorry :|).
Little by little you'll get into it, just don't think about it too much and keep your motivations with you. ^_^
