Anorexia, Trying To Overcome What's Difficult.

I was diagnosed a few days ago with borderline anorexia for the second time. I've got amazing support from my boyfriend, family, best friends. It's still difficult though, it seems no matter how much support you have, it doesn't make it much easier. They're all telling me to eat but it's not that simple. I want to eat, I want to get better but it's not that simple. It's a medical illness and no-one seems to understand that. I hate being in the situation that I am and I'd do anything to get out if it. I'm losing weight and I hate looking in the mirror to see what I'm doing to myself...

I definitely understand what you're going through. It can be very hard for people to understand that anorexia is really, really hard- no more of a choice than other diseases. If you ever need to talk to someone who's been through something similar, my inbox is always open- feel free to send me a message. Whatever happens, it's great that you have so much support and I know you'll get through this.

Thank you. It's very hard but everyone can overcome it, thanks so much:)

I had a problem like that, during the summer I was very depressed and I wouldn't eat, I was never hungry. I lost weight to the point when I was exausted all the time and sick. Don't feel sorry for yourself! Feel proud! You are trying and you want to and thats better off than some! I have confidence that you can get there! Friends and family can help just as much as a doctor can! Best of luck and I hope you get better!

I always feel tired, sick all the time :( and I do try it's nice having support though for sure, definitely helps lead you in the right direction! And thank you very much, means alot!
