Exhausted - April 15th 2016, 09:19 PM

All my life I've been worried about my weight. I remember being in 6th grade with my mum warning me about not "getting fat" with Starbuck's empty calorie frappachinos, and in college, never wearing sweatpants for too long before you realize you are fat and can't fit into jeans. Everyone always makes comments about me being so skinny, but I feel disgusting. I am either avoiding mirrors are looking in the mirror and hating what I see, trying to figure out how to get a flat stomach. I used to run until I was made stop after years and years of sports injuries. I am malnourished and prone to accident after I saw a metabolic specialist and everything was fine. I called an eating disorder treatment center and they said they wouldn't have any openings for a few weeks, but after my screen call they wanted me to start an Partial Hospitalization Program. How is anyone expected to just stop their life and do a full, grueling treatment process, without working, and broke as shit. I just don't even know where to begin... Ugh. I'm tired of fainting everyday from exhaustion. I need help

Hey there

I'm really not an expert on the topic of EDs so I'm not sure, if I can be of any help.
What I know though, is that an ED often is rooted somewhere. Like, I have a friend who as an ED and she once told me, that she's doing it because everything is spiraling out of control and the control over her weight is the only thing she has left.
So, to get better I guess it's important to find the reason for your ED. If you know what it is, maybe you can go from there.
Also, what often is helpfull, no matter what you are struggeling with, is someone to trust. So maybe you can find a friend, teacher, anyone really, whom you can trust and just talk to. You could also use the blog to rant and stuff though from experience I can tell you it works much better if you talk to someone who answers and if it's just a pat on the back
I know it's not much, but maybe there's something helpfull there

It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!

I think you need to take the help you can get. I have been in hospital 12 times and my longest stay was two and a half years and every single time I have literally had to drop everything. School, family, work, University, friends, boyfriends, absolutely everything. But sometimes we need to do these things for ourselves, to get us better and I think right now you need to put yourself first in this. I know its hard and scary but it may well be worth it. If you want to talk about it or anything, please feel free to shoot me a message but in the meantime remember we're all here to support you through, what you are going through and that you are not and never will be alone in this, okay?

I hope things start to look up for you and that you begin to get the help you certainly deserve.

Hope and wishes,

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

I think I know a little bit about this. My mom was obese and she had gastric bypass surgery a couple years ago. She needed time off work to get it done. She couldn't afford the time off cause dad was out of work cause he was sick to. But the doctor said if you don't, you may never have the chance to, because she could die, anytime. Which is true for anyone, but she was really large, she was having some major medical stuff happening. Dad to. So she just did it, she had to, for herself, to be healthy again.

It was hard on the family for a while, she was out of work for a month I think, maybe more, with no pay. But we made it through. It's a life style change we all had to do with her, even now, every meal, me and my brother talk to her and help her cause we need her. Especially with dad gone. So look at it like that. You need to, everything else can wait, it'll be there when your better, waiting for you.....life will be waiting....
