Depressed... I don't wanna be seen :/ HELP!!! - December 30th 2016, 08:36 AM

I have been all over the scale in the last few months because of this eating disorder. I just don't get it. Every morning I wake up as "a different person" and I don't want to be seen. I have a hard time going to school even which is so unlike me because I love school. I starve and exercise excessively then binge and purge then exercise some more. Some days I can physically see and feel more fat on my body than other days. I'm in the process of recovery right now but I really just wanna be stubborn and do whatever it take s to feel happy with myself. But I know that isn't right of me to even think like that. I have to recover whether I like it or not.

Does anyone have advice to how I can make this process easier and less overwhelming? Or to just get over the fact that I hate my body? I need to stop caring about what I look like... it really doesn't matter as much as I portray it to be. PLEASE HELP BEFORE I GIVE UP ON LIFE!!! :/ 😩😒

I know if I don't eat right it can mess up my moods. For example if I'm depressed in the afternoon and the whole world looks different and bleak it may be because I skipped lunch.

I know the brain has a map of the body in it, and it's this map of the body in our brain that we perceive as reality. For example, a patient who loses a limb may report feeling a phantom limb. Their brain's body map still has a limb, where their body doesn't actually have a limb anymore. It works the other way too: a stroke patient the stoke may damage the body map in the brain, damaging the brain's map of a limb, then the patient no longer realises the limb belongs to them. They may even ask the nurse to take away the limb saying they don't know who it belongs to.

The point is it's this map of the body in the brain that can get messed up, and it's this map we perceive as reality.

(Sorry that probably doesn't help much.)
