Well done for deciding to recover! That decision was definitely a smart, though not necessarily an easy, one. And it's definitely the best thing for your health in the long run. It's natural for your body to reject the food, but in time it will get used to your new eating habits. It's a good idea to talk to your doctor about this, because they can help you figure out the best way to go about recovery, and help you if anything goes wrong.
Good luck.

Just like Francesca said above, thats a smart thing to do and not easy. I guess that proves how strong you are, and you have to keep reminding yourself of that one.

Recovery isnt easy, on thing or another is going to make you want to starve yourself at times. Whether its because you have thoughts of losing weight or whether its because your body isnt handling it. This has been going on for five years so it is going to be a big change to your body. I would suggest you seeing your doctor, they might be able to help alot more than you think.

I think you've taken a really great step and i dont know you, but im truly proud of you. Feel free to PM me if you ever need support.

Well done on deciding to recover! It's not an easy road, though. It will get better, and after a while your body will stop rejecting food. You can't just go from eating very little to eating normally though, it will make you sick since your stomach has shrunk. The best thing to do would be to talk to your doctor, or a nutritionist, who can help you get back to eating normally, although it will take time.

You can also start small, eating a meal and a snack, and then moving to two small meals, etc. Six small meals a day is recommend, and often easier than three large meals. It will get easier with time, just hang in there.
