So I had anorexia a few years ago and I thought I beat it then I weighed myself yesterday and I gained quite a few pounds in a month and a half I know I just had knee surgery and haven't been moving around a lot but still
I freaked out now all my thoughts of not eating are coming back and how I'm fat stuff like that I'm scared please help this is the heaviest I've ever been and I'm freaking out

There is always someone who cares about you. It may not seem like it but there is. I can promise you that much.

Hey Chantelle.

It's great that you've been in recovery the past few years and that's something you have achieved and should be proud of yourself for.

I think it's important for you to remember the reasons of why you went into recovery and gained weight. These factors stand out way more than being anorexic. Things like having energy to talk and walk, not being cold all of the time, your hair falling out, nutritional deficiencies and so on. And then there may be personal things to you. I know someone with anorexia and the fact that she's I really eco very and getting bigger breats and a bum makes her feel better and more of a woman which is a reason for her to continue with her recovery. So think of the small things too.

Do you have any mental health support especially related to your eating disorder? If not maybe this is something you need to think about seriously. Having that support can help you deal with being at your highest weight and how to cope with the uncomfortable and discussing thoughts and feelings around it. Maybe you could look into seeing a counsellor or a eating disorder specialist. And you can still do exercise despite having surgery on your knee, it just might be different to what you would normally do.

And remember if you need to talk we're here, but remember why you've been fighting and beating this and let those things drive your recovery.

Hope and wishes,

"Only in the dark, can you see the stars..."
