I can't tell if things are getting better or worse.

I am not feeling well right now.  I emailed a therapist to set up an appointment, so that is good.  I have also been going to my eating disorder group and have talked to some people about other things.  So outwardly it looks like things are getting better.  But on the inside it feels worse.  In high school I used to study constantly.  But now I have trouble doing any homework at all.  I am not sure what I should do.  I will ask the therapist when I go, but I thought I would come on here too.  Do you even think the therapy will work?  I know everyone thinks this, but it just feels like it is such a complicated problem.  I am of course going to go through with it because it is the only choice I have left (and to be honest I am happy to go). Hmm... I don't know what the point of this was... just a little rant.  ;)
