Relapse - August 8th 2010, 10:10 PM

I was doing really well. It had been a year of eating like a normal person and now i'm eating less and less. I look at food and i want to throw up. I don't want my family to know how bad i have gotten again. Any advice on how to stop it before i end up looking dead?

thanks in advance
jenny

Just think about all of the cons of relapsing.
You've been their before and you know how hard it is to get back up from that point, right?

it's not worth the effort of letting yourself fall down more just to climb back up.

Just stay strong.
You know you are stronger than the Eating Disorder.

You should tell someone in your family so they can help you, i think they'd be more hurt and upset if they found out somewhere down the line that you had been struggling and avoiding asking them for help...

my mom has more on her plate then she can handle all ready and she doesn't need to know i think i can stop it i have a great boy friend who is supporting me just scared i won't be able to stop it completely before i get really sick from it again... i ate 2 small meals today kinda suprised my self i had gotten so that i couldn't eat until late at night and only a very small amount or i would throw up scared me. guess it's the stress of having to be a grown up now, i just graduated high school and finding a job is really hard stressed me out plus flash backs and every thing else but i hope it will stop now that i have support if it doesn't i'm gonna have to tell my mom

I know what you mean. You have the part of you who wants to relapse and just give into the ED.
but then there's the other part, who knows the pain and how hard it is to even live through any of it.
It's easier just to get help before it gets worse.
stay strong

Jenny, I know it's hard to think about telling your mom, when she has a lot going on also. But, you are her daughter...and her job is to be there for you. Plus, think of it this way: would you rather tell her now, when you are asking for help, asking for support, and still not in a crisis situation (really really ill)...vs. telling her in weeks or months when you are so far into a relapse that it ends up a medical emergency, or a mental health emergency, and everything is full-fledged relapse? You are "dumping" significantly LESS on her by telling her now and being proactive. I promise.
