I want to purge until I faint - January 28th 2016, 01:35 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I literally am so damn frustrated. I have been on the phone trying to get help but I get turned down because I have under a thousand dollars a month. I want to eat and eat and then I want to purge and purge until I see blood in the toilet and faint. I want to make myself so bad that they have to give me treatment because of how sever I am. I need treatment but no one takes me seriously. I also need to cut...(see sh thread for that explanation.

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

You recognize that those behaviors are self-destructive. You have the choice to not engage in doing them. Feelings are not facts. Just because you feel like you have to do something doesn't mean you actually do have to. There are countless ways of finding help. Start by going to the Emergency Room. I'm serious. You're experiencing a mental health emergency. Stop hurting yourself. Go to the hospital right now. You have a desire to get help. So go get help. It might not be in the way that you originally planned on, but as the expression goes, "there's more than one way to skin a cat."

That wasn't a mental health emergency. And I get No help by going to the emergency room. All I get is oh 51/50 and no help.

Eating disorders and wanting to harm yourself is a mental health emergency. That is why people seek out treatment. When someone's issues are enough to where they feel as if they need to go to treatment, then yes, it is an emergency.
How do you know they won't help you? If you don't ask then the answer will always be no.

Hi Frankie,

These feelings are horrific to deal with and I'm really sorry you're experiencing them. Keep on fighting against them, you're doing great.

As for treatment, is there no where near you that will treat you for under a thousand a month? That's a lot of money, and the mental health service where you live seems to be a bit unfair if that's the only option. I know it takes a lot to reach out and it's even worse when you get rejected, but keep on trying. Look for charity organisations and online to see if there's anything more affordable. Making yourself worse will only give yourself higher to climb back up, and chances are emergency treatment will only consist of a few days of medical help that will stabilise you physically but not consist of treatment for the actual problem.

When you have intense feelings like this, my best advice is to be around someone. Don't be alone, and be with someone doing something relaxing. You ever heard of adult colouring? It's quite relaxing and a nice distraction. It keeps your hands busy and if you're with someone at the time that'll make you unable to binge and purge. If you're really scared you won't be able to resist the urges, sometimes being around another person is the best option.

I hope things look up and you find treatment soon! You're doing great



Take as long as you need.

Hi Frankie.

I'm so sorry you're struggling again. I don't really know how it works with getting help where you live as here we do it through the NHS unless you go privately. Could you talk to your doctor about what help you may be able to receive with your income etc?

I remember when I was purging so badly I was throwing up blood and it's not a nice place to be and I hope you don't end up there. I'm now on tablets for my bulimia and I have a lot of regrets about it even though I still do it. Just know that you are stronger than this and you can beat it okay? Try and be around people and not be alone or spend a lot of time in the bathroom. Keep distracted and focus your mind on something you can really get into. Again, I know it's hard but I believe in you and I care. I wouldn't write back to you if I didn't. Just keep your head up and your heart strong. You've got this and we're rooting for you.

All my love.
Jessie
