Bit embarrassing - August 8th 2016, 01:23 AM

Hi,
So this is a little embarrassing but anyways. So for a long time I've thought I'm fat and stuff. Never had the body I wanted. I had gone borderline anorexic a few years back, and I had become really thin. I managed to get over it.
Recently, I've put on some weight, and now it seems like whenever I eat I need to go to the loo to have a dump. I sometimes tell myself that I need to lose weight, and it seems that I'm trying to avoid keeping weight on by crapping. I know this sounds stupid, and probably isn't anything, but anyways. If anyone can suggest someways for me to try and manage this it would be great.
Thanks

And remember, you matter. You're awesome. You're beautiful. Stay strong, the world will get better.

May The Force be With You.

Hey!

I think you should be fine. As long as it's not you forcing yourself to crap (which I'm not sure you could) then it all just sounds like normal bodily functions. All of us here on TeenHelp aren't medical professionals (or maybe there's a doctor somewhere amongst us) so I'd suggest going to a doctor if you're really worried about this.

Hope this helps and feel free to PM me if you ever need anything!

I agree, it doesn't sound as if anything is wrong. It's quite natural for people to poop a few times a day and after meal times.

Are you taking laxatives? Using laxatives excessively IS a form of disordered eating that probably goes under the category of purging. You haven't mentioned taking laxatives in order to lose weight but if you are, that may be a reason to speak to a doctor or mental health professional. Other than that, what exactly do you wish to manage? Is it the thoughts you're having in regards to body image or is it particular habits? Are you still doing behaviors that you did during your borderline anorexic days? Can you tell us a little more about the way things were before and are now?


I hope talking about this helped a little. We are here to help and won't judge you
