    Getting better. Slowly

    5
    My mindset is improving I think! I also met this amazing person who makes me feel completely okay, he's making me want to take care of myself because if I'm hurt, he's hurt, an I never want that, so yeah!I fell sick two weeks ago though and lost all the weight, plus more, that I had gained. But that's okay! I can finally eat now! Not a whole lot, but I'm not dizzy, weak, and on the verge of...

    So it has been nine days and I haven't been binge eating. Well part of me wants to give in today and just binge eat, but then the other part of me wants to try to keep going and not do this. I am not sure what to do, that is why I am posting this.

    Relapse

    0
    Relapsed last night. I don't think it will happen again because I don't enjoy throwing up but I feel myself emotional eating/overeating. I just want a normal relationship with food. I don't like my body but I know I'll never lose weight if I don't find motivation to get up and do anything or form the right relationship with food.

    Counseling

    4
    In less than a week I will start seeing a psychologist they specializes in eating disorders. I'm not going to be able to still see my regular counselor anymore for ethical reasons since I will be seeing a psychologist. I'm very nervous and stressed because it's over $100 a session and she doesn't take insurance. I'm really nervous about getting help for my eating disorder.

    Helpful site and app.

    2
    It's amazing how a site like this is one minute helpful then others triggering.  I leave to be not triggered.  I always come back because it helps me feel understudied.  I also found a wonderful site that has an app for your phone.  The site is recoverywarriors. Com the app is called rise up.  If found these helpful if anyone is interested.  Hopefully everyone had a better holiday, and...

    Hey everyone,I'm new to this site, and looking for some support! I've struggled with anorexia for almost 2 years now, and I'm 20 years old. I recently relapsed, and am in recovery on my winter break home from college. Have lots of love and support, but still really struggling.

    I need help

    3
    I'm 20 years old, and I'm a sophomore in college. I've always struggled with body image, ever since I was a little kid; I remember being in fourth grade and asking my sister if she thought I was fat. I became bulemic and very restrictive when I was in eighth grade, and it continued on and off throughout high school. When I went away to college, I was in a slightly better place; though I was...

    Lost in my mind

    4
    Hello.  I have recently come back to my eating disorder after much time away.  Now I feel trapped within it again.  My own health risks are not enough to motivate me at the moment.  I so desperately want to be healthy again, but I cant seem to break free.  What helps you guys stay motivated when you feel lost in your eating disorder mind?

    Scared to be trapped

    I am going to visit my father  -- who recently moved across country -- for a week. We have not stayed together since I was a kid and extremely active in my eating disorder.He expects me to eat normally otherwise my whole family will go into crisis and throw me in treatment. Normal for me is not as good as actual normal but it's damn good for me. He makes comments on my food and weight, either...

    Weight loss buddy

    Hey, my name is Elizabeth and I am a 14 year old girl who is 173cm and 70kg. I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember, and I remember being the biggest one on my class in primary school. I didn't really think too much about my weight until I was probably in year 8. Home stresses and falling behind in school work lead to stress and mild depression where food was a comfort. I...

    ED brain vs original brain.

    1
    I'm tired and it is the end of the day so I already know that that is contributing to my mood. Lately I have been feeling really frustrated. I've taken some really positive steps toward recovery but my ED brain is pulling me back. I just relapsed on purging for the first time in a awhile and it's making me feel defeated. It seems like I've taken such great steps forward and then I take 2...

    Body Image and Self-talk

    3
    Having a negative body image and having negative self-talk seem to be something that we all share.  Many of us (probably all of us) survived a childhood filled with people, adults and children alike, putting us down.  Telling us we were not good enough.  That our bodies were not perfect.  These people seemed to delight in pointing out all our perceived flaws.  Unconditional love was only...
