Okay so I'm starting my new job tomorrow, it's really formal and I'm so scared because I've got into a job which is really rare to get into at my age and I don't want to mess up.

At lunch they all go out and get some food and my mum told them i'd be going with them but I don't eat, I drink coffee to give me energy, and I don't know what to do because if I eat I will throw up and I'm scared they will say something.

What do I do? :s

Question of interest, why is your mom telling people at work about you?

Any how, I think you are in a tight spot no matter how to spin it. If you don't eat eventually someone is going to notice you never eat. If you always eat and leave to throw up afterwards someone will notice that too. My only recommendation to you is to find a way to eat something so that you aren't losing out. Maybe start with something that won't cause you guilt such as a salad - people might think it odd but are more likely to dismiss it as a health kick vs. anything concerning.

If you are struggling so much you are afraid to have lunch at work, you should also seek professional assistance with these challenges. It is likely to make you feel better if you know you are seeking ways to make positive progress

My mum likes to control everything

I might try and eat a salad, the thought of it is turning my stomach.

Why bother eating? Could you not tell people that you don't do lunch? I really don't think it's that big a deal (to them, not to you - big deal for you).

One of the people I do lunch with is on a diet where she doesn't eat some days. Sometimes I just don't feel like lunch, but will sit to talk. If anyone asks, just tell them you don't eat lunch. They don't need to know why


Feel free to email/PM/VM/whatever me if you want. I'll answer as soon as I can.
