Soooo.... - January 22nd 2011, 07:13 AM

I know I have posted about my eatting habits a lot and saying how I was going to try and get help and see if I even had an eatting disorder anyways I actually went to my counclor at the beginning of this month and finally told her what was going on after trying to for about a year now at least that's what she said. Anyways she refered me to an ED specialist and i saw her wendsday and turns out I have a lot of symptoms and it will soon turn to anorexia if I don't turn it around. So now she wants me to see her a nutritionest and go to two diffrent groups for people with EDs. But I have to think about it before she will set up any appointments.So I have to call her in two weeks if I am determind to do this.

My only problem is in the groups since it's for adults and she said it verys in ages and sizes because it has binge eaters, anorexics and bulimics in it. I'm just afraid I will be the only teen ager since i still am one and I'm already anti-social and have social anxiety I have no clue how that's going to work...

Anyone have any Ideas on how to get over this fear?

EDIT: I forgot to add this I applied to work at a Girl Scout this summer and if I do get hired I know I'm going to have to eat and the thing is I do I just don't eat as much as I need to plus I'm really picky so I might be able to pull it off but I really don't want to because I want to be a rolemodel to the girls so do you think if I'm in the group and do get hired the things I learned and the suport I will be okay at camp?

First of all it is great that you found some help!
I think the only way to know is to go and find out, you never know you may meet some really kind supportive people that can guide you through this.
Take care and good luck, feel free to PM me if you need anything

It is great you found help, and I really think you should try one of those groups. They may just be what you need, and even though they may be older than you, still you could make some pretty good friends, who will understand whats going on. If you are going to this Girl Scout thing, you need to be in the best possible place you can be. If the groups don't work, then you can get plently of individual help! Hope you can get through this soon!

best Wishes xx

I love that song
The group sounds like a really good idea, don't be put off because the others look different to you, think of it as a chance to make new friends!
as for the camp, be brave and go for! you will never regret going as much as you would regret letting food stop you.
you remind me a lot of myself, actually
good luck! <3
