I need help - May 16th 2016, 09:41 PM

for the first time I forced myself to throw up. I put my hand in my mouth, close to my throat until I started gagging and eventually threw up. I know I don't need to lose weight but I feel like I need to be thinner I'm just really confused rn.

Firstly, I'm glad that you're taking the first step by accepting its something wrong.
What you seem to be having is bad self image or anorexia. I'm not a doctor, so I may be completely wrong.
But anyways, maybe you can talk to someone? A friend, family member, counsellor?
Also, I had a similar thing (except I didn't eat at all), and it was because I was being bullied at school.
Is it something similar for you?
Feel free to PM me at any point if you wanna chat.

Thanks for reaching out to us here. I hope we can help in some way.

Firstly you do not deserve this. You've said yourself you do not need to lose weight which makes me come to the conclusion that you're at a healthy weight which is really good. Purging is dangerous in a lot of ways. I'm now on medication due to purging so much in the past and know people who are worse of than me for purging too. You really don't want to get into this and damage your body for it either.

I know you must be going through a tough time for this all to be happening and I am so sorry for that. You seem lovely and don't deserve this. Has anything happened to make you feel the need to be skinny? Any past problems etc? If there is something and you would like to talk about it to us please feel free to do so or you can seek support from other parts of the site like HelpLINK and LiveHELP if it is online. Blogging to rant can be really helpful too! Just a few idea's. But like I said, we're here for you any time.

Is there someone at home you could talk to about this as well? Because it's good to have support from someone online but a lot of people find it more helpful to have support in "real life" too. Maybe someone like a family member, a friend, a teacher/tutor, a counselor or your GP/Doctor? These people all care about you and will, I am sure, be wanting to help you through this. Don't be afraid to reach out for help with this. The sooner the better to nip it in the bud to prevent it from getting out of control. But like I said we're always here too. So you are NEVER alone in this.

I hope this helps a little and I hope things start to look up for you and that you get the help you need and deserve.

Hope and wishes,

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