    Hi, so I posted here a while ago and I was at the brink of downfall. Now... everything's going terribly. I count my calories, but only end up eating 300-400 calories per day, a lot of the time less than that. I'm now in the hospital for this, and they don't believe in me. They think I'm pretty much doomed and I don't know how to take it. I think I should just give up on the whole "getting better"...

    Hi

    I'm a sophomore in high school and I've had self image problems since I was 8. My classmate called me fat and since then I've hated myself. I'm a average weight I guess but I don't see it. Everyone says I'm skinny but I don't see. I don't eat breakfast much anymore and I rarely have lunch. Only when someone yells at me. I have self harmed before but I'm trying not to. When it happens I don't...

    Scared

    My mom keeps threatening to send me to hospital for losing so much weight in little time and for not eating. I don't want to go.....I don't want to be forced. I'm really scared. I just want to lose weight not gain it back. I worked so hard to lose this weight.

    Just joined today.  I have been dealing with Bulimia for 23 years (more than half my life).  I want to break free from this.  I am tired of all of it.  I am looking here for inspiration, motivation to stop and to be among people that understand and know the pain I live with.

    Hi everyone,I am new to daily strength and to this group. I joined daily strength group primarily so that I could join an eating disorder group. I don't think that I have an eating disorder, but I do have a disordered relationship with food. I have always struggled with body image issues, but over the last six-seven months I have started to eat less and less, to the point where I was eating only...

    I would like to talk to my doctor about this also but I thought some side mind would help me. I don't sleep well so all ready I'd say how i eat is messed up. I am morbidly obese and weigh damn nearly 400 pounds. This june I will be getting the gastric sleeve in hopes to help. The problem here is I think I have an eating problem, I don't want to call it an eating disorder because I don't know if...

    My sister is anorexic and even after having a heart attack will not admit to her problem.  Besides her being my sister she is my best friend and I don't know what I would do without her if G-D forbid she died.  Tried an intervention, begging her to eat, sending e-mails to her co-workers, CEO - nothing.  She is smart and beautiful with so much to offer.  Her husband has given up, my brother...

    hey guys *waving hand* I'm new to this group, but not new to daily strength. When I was in high school (graduated in 2012) I had anorexia for a while but then I eventually recovered from it. Lately I've developed binge eating and gaining a lot of weight from it. I've started smoking pot because of some other medical reasons and have noticed that when I get the munchies I binge more, but even when...

    Can't control my mind

    I don't know if what I "have" is an eating disorder. I go through phases of hating myself and then I restrict my calories and then I eat a lot of food when I'm alone or with family, but whenever I'm with anyone but my family I don't eat. Anyways I feel really bad after and just keep eating more. Then I go through it again where I restrict, and sometimes I get relly motivated and try to be...
