You definitely need someone who is qualified to help you like a therapist or a psychiatrist. They can help find out where all your issues are rooted so you can understand and alleviate them.

One thing you can try to work on yourself right now is your self-image. Remind yourself of the following:

You are beautiful.
Gaining weight will not change the immutable fact that you are beautiful.
It is okay to gain weight to get back to being healthy.
It is good to be healthy.


It may not sound very convincing now, but it can help. I had a friend who struggled with an ED. She actually personified it by calling it Ed, like the name. It was a long and difficult road but now she's back within a healthy weight range and maintaining it. Both her and the other friends who had struggled with it and won are both better off for it. They are actually more attractive now than they were before, as you will be.

Being healthy not only helps you live better but it can contribute to making you more beautiful. Not only will you be able to fill out a variety of cute clothes more readily but since you'll be eating right your complexion can improve, your hair will get shiner and more vibrant, and your general attitude can perk up. All these things are things you can look forward to.

Hey luvdance643. It's really good that you're reaching out for help. Perhaps you can inform your friends about what you want them to do in terms of getting you to eat? That seems to me like a good idea.

plan for if things get worse for me and tips to help you help me:
  • don't try to guilt me into eating.
  • be patient with me .
  • be careful not to trigger me with weight talk .
  • dont talk about cals to me ,say no i dont want to talk about that if i bring cals up.
  • ask me if you are unsure of what to say or what suggestions you could make on food to eat that ill be ok with and wont get trggered by eating it as much.
  • when trying to persuade me to eat dont let me telll you otherwise or manupliate or control.
  • after eating and im complaining about urges do try to distract me by moving on to another topic or saying i dont think that talking about the urges will hlp you get better,etc.
  • when im wanting to badly self harm give me some suggestionson stuff to do instead or say i would like you to stay safe so please remove the thing you would plan on using to si away from you or at least hide it so you wont be tempted.
