Hey I'm Alexandra (i'm New) haha - March 31st 2009, 10:26 PM

OK so I was advised to make one of these things. ummmm........So generally I am here for support with Eating Disorders. I within like one day of joining this I have succeed in telling my parents about a(one of my) eating disorder(s) that I have had for many years now. So I am currently a college student and will hopefully be recovering from this eating disorder sometime soon. My other purpose is to be of any help that I can to anyone that needs it. I am trying to take everything one day at a time!!
Message me or email me whatever!

I wanna feel, all the chemicals inside I wanna feel I wanna a sunburn, just to know that I'm alive To know I'm alive, Don't wake me 'cause I'm dreaming, of angels on the moon Where everyone you know, never leaves too soon!" *~Thriving Ivory~*

This is the song of my recovery

Hi there, Alexandra
I am so proud of you for telling your parents about one of your EDs! That must have taken a lot of courage. I am so happy for you.
TH is a really great resource for advice, so if you are ever unsure about something, have any questions, or want help with a certain situation, be sure to post about it. We'll all do our best to help you out in whatever way we can.
If you want to chat sometime, just send me a message!
It's good to have you here.

Everyone has a story. What's yours?

Hey there Alexandra. Nice to meetcha, and like people said, good job telling your parents. That does take fortitude.

Welcome to teenhelp my name is Edna and I came a while ago to get help for SH and ED, and now I am also somewhere on the road to recovery. It's been awesome here, and I think this site has really helped me and I really, really hope it does the same for you. Hope to see you around!

Hey Alexandra,

Welcome to Teen Help!!!
I am so glad you found us. I am sure you will find some great support here. There are so many kind understanding people who love to help (myself included ). You can always post threads to get help and advice from users but if you need more immediate support you can use the support and advice chat room, Live Help, or you can always always PM me. I am here for you if you need me and I am never to busy to listen. I wish you the very best of luck with recovery. Recovery is possible and I know you have it in you to beat this. Stay strong and hang in there.

It's amazing that you were able to tell your parents about your eating disorder. I'm Amanda Kate and I'm 16 years old. I live in Virginia. I have suffered from bulimia, but I never got the courage to talk to my parents about it. They aren't very understanding. Hopefully your parents will be able to help you through the recovery process.

Hey, Alexandra (pretty name ) I'm Marissa, and I'm a Buddy here on TH. It's nice to meet you <3 As mentioned above, checking out the stickies at the top of this section can help you find your way around pretty quickly, plus don't be afraid to ask questions...we usually don't bite

Things to look at that are interesting; the chat room is awesome, and our magazine Avatar is really cool and a good reflection of TH in general.

You're incredibly brave for being able to tell your parents about an ED; I can't get the guts up to talk to mine about ANY problems, and I really admire your courage. I hope they'll be supportive as you fight through this. PM me if you ever want to talk about anything, I love to listen.

See you around!

When you say "never", I'll say "lie"
When you say "always", I'll say "true"
When you say "love", I'll say "you"
I'll say "you"

It gets better.

Hey Alexandria!

I love that name, by the way. It rolls off the tongue nicely

Anyway, welcome to TeenHelp! It's amazing that you've told your parents about your eating disorder, and I hope we're able to help you overcome that! I know the most helpful thing for me around here was seeing so many recovery stories, so many people progress tremendously. It's inspiring, and motivating.

We have a lot of crazy awesome people on here, so I hope you feel comfortable looking around and talking to people. Post around and all that, it's fun.

Do you really live in New York? That's amazing! I'd love to go there, anywhere, even if it's not the city. It's always fascinated me for some reason, and I've looked a bit at going to college there when I finally get to college haha.

If you need anything around the site at all, do let me know, or contact any of the lovely people in green, our

Can't wait to see you around!

The best wayout is always through~
