New... well sort of. - November 9th 2009, 11:36 PM

Hey everyone. I'm new here. Well, actually I used to come on this site a longgg time ago and it's been a long while but recently I've been going through a really hard time and I just thought it would be a good idea to get as much help as I can and in the past this place has been helpful to me. Ya'll can call me Missy. I'm nineteen years old. I've recently been diagnosed with an eating disorder. I don't fall into anorexia or bulimia. I don't binge but I do purge and I sometime restrict without purging. So I'm just a mixture of the two. I've been suffering with this disease since 8th grade but only recently have I started to accept that I need help.

I've been through some other issues. I'm trying to learn to trust people... especially guys... it's really hard for me. Never been in a serious relationship. Too afraid, I guess.

I hide my problems well..... too well. No one knows how much I'm hurting and I have to learn how to express my feelings more openly because it's killing me. There's only so much pain you can hold in.

Ok, well that's all for now. I am looking for new friends for online support so if you're interested let me know.

Hey Missy, welcome back to TeenHelp! My name is Jessi...it's nice to meet you. If you ever need help with the site or even if you just want to talk, you can always contact me.

"For the first time
in a long time,
I can say that I wanna try.
I feel helpless for the most part,
but I'm learning to open my eyes.
And the sad truth of the matter is,
I'll never get over it,
but I'm gonna try
to get better and overcome each moment
in my own way"

Hi Missy, welcome back to TeenHelp
It's always nice to see old members come back. I'm sorry you're having a bit of a rough time right now, and you've come to the right place if you're looking for any advice/support. Recovery is worth it, just know that.

Anyways, things may have changed since you were last here so if you have questions or difficulty getting around the site feel free to contact me (or another buddy) and we can help you out! Take care. :]

Hey Missy!
Welcome back to TeenHelp! That's amazing you have decided to reach out for help. That's the first step to getting better and overcoming this. Just like what was said above, things have proabably changed since you were last here. Let me know if you need anything.
Take care,

If I can make it out, you can too.
