Unhappy this scares me :( - January 15th 2009, 02:24 AM


I've hardly eaten all day... I just can't...
I was feeling so sick so I had a little bit to eat like half an hour ago but now I feel even worse
I felt so sick I just tried to make myself throw up (i haven't done this before) I couldn't do it though... but it scared me... I think I'm getting worse but I just don't know what to do.

help anyone?

I've only told two of my friends...
I can't tell anyone in my family because they wouldn't understand... I no my mum won't... she wants me to lose weight... she's making me worse D=
and i don't like the idea of going to see a counselor... I've been to see the school one before about other problems and I just didn't feel right talking to them...

I'm just having a bit of a moment right now and the two people who know about this are busy atm so I can't talk to them D=

Hi there Ali, I'm sorry things are so diffucult for you at the moment. It is really important that you talk to someone properly about how you're feeling and you did to your friends so well done because that must have been so difficult.
I'm sure your mum would understand, she'd be better off knowing that find out another way wouldn't she? Your mum cares about you and she needs to know how you're feeling so something can be done about it.
Is there anything that has made you feel the way you do at the moment? Anything that's made you feel paticularly down making you feel like you can't eat?
It's important that you do something about this sooner rather than later because otherwise it'll be harder in the long run. You don't deserve to have to struggle with this on your own so I really hope that you are able to speak to someone about this properly.
You're not alone with feeling how you do, and there's always someone here to support you, take care .

The prettiest things can come out of the coldest night.

At one point, all you ever did...
was everything you ever wanted.

Snap back to reality. <3

I'm so sorry to hear things are going rough for you, right now. Remember that things will start to feel better, soon. I think the best way to speed that process up is to talk to someone about how you're feeling. I know that talking to a professional seems really scary--I know because I've been there. But sometimes we have to accept the fact that we need a little bit of help, and find the courage to ask for it. I know you have that courage, even if you're scared.

I also know that you know that not eating isn't good for you. If you didn't, I don't think you'd have posted here. It's good that you know this--now you have to work on believing it. Knowing and believing don't always go hand in hand, so it's important to work towards understanding and believe that you are worth better.

It's good, believe it or not, that purging scares you. There are so many health risks that accompany both restricting (not eating), and purging (throwing up.)

It's really good that you've told some friends, but I really, really hope you'll consider telling someone else. Sometimes, no matter how much they love us, we need more than our friends can give to us. Maybe if you can't tell your mom, you could tell your favorite teacher, a guidance counselor, or the school nurse that you think you have an unhealthy relationship with food.

Let me know if you need to talk, now or ever. Remember that you deserve the best life can give to you.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind

I was thinking about maybe going to see the school counselor again... even though i don't really like her...
only problem is
it's summer holidays... and i don't go back to school for about another month...

i really can't tell my mum... just this morning she said i was looking thinner and she was so proud...

I've had a lot of problems last year at school... with bullying and some other stuff i don't really wanna talk about... i dunno... maybe that's got something to do with it... but I've been thinking this way for years... on and off with not eating...

Awww, I'm sorry to hear your not doing too god Ali. (Or was) How're you now? And I know about parents pressuring you to lose weight... Just do whats best for you, and it's good that you have told few friends, as Jessie said, you can tell a counelor or a teacher, if you feel more comfortable with them. PM me if you need any help.
