Hi I've been reading discussions on this sight a while but have only just joined up - part of me trying to get better (which most days I do want). This time I stopped eating properly about 4 months ago - I have had problems for about nine years with depression and eating. I thought is was something I could control when life got too much but have discovered that really it's controlling me. Now I'm working I don't want to go to the doctors because of my job and the fact they request to see your medical records. I have finally booked a private session with a therapist because I'm sick of spending my whole life thinking aabout food, being depressed and lonely. It is on Tuesday and although I know it's a positive step I'm really scared. It's such a lot of trust you have to put in a stranger. I tried therapy a long time ago and it was a disaster - I guess I wasn't ready to talk. So I could really do with some encouragement to get me there otherwise I may not make it in.
