told my parents - September 24th 2010, 12:45 AM

so today i told my parents about my eating disorder. they actually reacted really well considering. i'm glad i have their support, but i still felt like i let them down. let everyone down, including myself.

i also saw a medical doctor and am getting blood drawn. i have a therapist here, and am going to have a psychiatrist and nutritionist here as well. i just wanted to give y'all an update

Hey, well done for being strong and telling them. Please don't feel like you let them down ~ everyone goes through tough times and taking the first step in asking for help is a sign of strength and not weakness. I think it's really great that you've done this. We'll support you at TH all the way (: x

Laura,

I'm so proud of you for telling them. I'm glad you have their support. Hang in there, you can do this!
