Question Confused - September 24th 2010, 01:17 AM

Ok o lately I have been feeling extremely fat and have had no desire to eat at all like today I ate like half of one of those tiny lunchable sandwiches and felt like I gained 20 pounds and then I ate 2 flautas at neldas and wanted to puke cause I felt so fat. I've never felt like this until a couple weeks ago. Do I have an eating disorder or am I just stressed. I also have problems with SI and I'm wondering if there's anyway it could be linked to that. Any advice?

Hey there,

We at teenhelp cannot diagnose you but we can offer you support. It is definitely not a good thing that you are feeling this way about yourself and I encourage you not to cave into your urges of not eating or throwing up because it really is just a slippery slope. Do you know what triggered this? If you can figure out the trigger you might be able to work on this and go from there.

Self harm is a very dangerous thing and I would suggest that you look at the alternatives. Hopefully they will help you overcome your urges. Here is the link:

I hope this helped and if you need anything feel free to pm me.

Jenna

I think it has to do with my mom. She passed away a month ago and things have been slipping out of control ever since

I am sorry about your loss. Is there anyone you can talk to about it? When we lose loved ones it is really important to let ourselves grieve and to find support from others around us. I encourage you to reach out to your friends and family. While it won't be an easy thing to do it could really help you.

While losing a parent is a difficult thing to deal with you can heal from this and get to a point where you are feeling better about life.

If you ever want to chat please send me a pm.

Jenna
