Help hiding my ED? - November 17th 2017, 03:27 AM

Hi. Recently my doctor started noticing obvious signs of my anorexia, which I've been trying too hide for three years. She's sending me to a nutritionist, but I'm scared they'll try to make me grain weight, and I don't want to. How can I hide my symptoms from my doctor and nutritionist?

Eating disorders, especially when they worsen, do tend to have many physical symptoms. I'm not sure how to 'hide' these symptoms, and not sure how much help we can give you with that, since TeenHelp promotes safety and recovery.

I understand that with eating disorders like anorexia, recovering can be challenging especially if it means putting on weight. Maybe you worry about weight gain and how you may look and feel about your body, or maybe you worry about not having such control over what you eat. And though recovery can be a challenge at times, and it can be scary, it is definitely worth it!

Maybe instead of trying to hide your symptoms from your doctor and nutritionist, you try to be honest instead. Let them know your symptoms but that you are also scared about being made to gain weight. You should, if you haven't already, have access to psychological support from a counsellor or therapist, as they will be able to help you in recovery.

I'm sorry you are having a hard time with this. Please don't be scared to tell the doctor about what is going on with you, and I know that when you are going through something it's really hard to open up to them and say it. The job that they have is to help everyone who is not feeling well or need help with something like this. And when you are able to open up about this and tell them that you need help, they will be able to help you. Also if you are not able to say it then you can write it down on paper and then give it to them when you are ready. I wish you the best and hope that you will be okay soon. Lots of Hugs.
