This is for emotional support and strategies for people who have issues around anorexia:

I hope you find this area helpful in your efforts to cope with this concern.


Don't throw away your shot.

Thanks for creating this forum, i have had pretty bad eating problems (anorexia mostly) and my parents are starting to get worried, again thank you for creating this
Good day~


There are many types of monsters that scare me: Monsters who cause trouble without showing themselves, monsters who abduct children, monsters who devour dreams, monsters who suck blood... and then, monsters who tell nothing but lies. Lying monsters are a real nuisance: They are much more cunning than others. They pose as humans even though they have no understanding of the human heart; they eat even though they've never experienced hunger; they study even though they have no interest in academics; they seek friendship even though they do not know how to love. If I were to encounter such monsters, I would likely be eaten by them... because in truth, I am that monster.

Is this the right place to seek guidance, advice and support for those afflicted with eating disorders (namely, Anorexia)? I'm new here. I suffer from many different mental illnesses/disorders and have my reservations about talking, even though I know I need to. If I'm in the wrong place, would anyone be so kind as to point me in the right direction (forum)? I'm not very good with technology...

Hello! I have 2 questions: Im afraid that im over the weight to seek help for anorexia. I also dont know how to tell my parents im like this, theyll just make fun of me. I cant trust anyone. I just want to be cared for and get help so i can end this hell. I enjoy the feeling of starving, but I don't wanna die now. I always get suicidal, but i don't actually want to die. Can anyone help me with how to tell parents about this?

I'm not able to see/access most of the threads here anymore. Ive had to newly register on the forums, I have come back to Psych Central because I haven't found other forums that are pro recovery.

I'm assuming this is because I am a new member but I would benefit from being able to engage and read the threads and posts

attentionThis is an old thread. You probably should not post your reply to it, as the original poster is unlikely to see it.
