My story

Postby weepingwillow » Fri Oct 09, 2020 6:39 pm

Hey, just thought I would do a quick post about my life with an eating disorder......

I began wanting to lose weight at 13, I wasn't overweight but I was bigger than others my age. First I started restricting then after a few months I ate a massive amount of sweets/cakes etc and felt so guilty that I made myself sick. That was the start of it.

This went on for a few years and I ended up in hospital a couple of times with electrolyte and stomach issues. Still I told noone the truth.

It wasn't until I was around 30 that I decided I needed help. I came on here first, then went to a local charity and from there saw my gp and eating disorders services.

Unfortunately I still struggle off and on. Especially during difficult times.
This is why I came back here, so I could speak to others and also help if I can.

Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
