View Full Version : [Chew] What Is The Best Way To Go About Recovering?
Recently I have been reading about the effects of anorexia and that it could shorten my lifespan by 25 years so I have had enough and I am finally off to the big wide world to seek help :), I need a life back, all I care bout is what i' eating and how long it is till the next meal.
I couldn't do it, but I don't want to anymore, plus people pressurizing me to stop and forcing me to eat things I don't want to has just made things worse, I guess I could try again one day but right now I am not even close to being ready to try recover, too fat. x

i made a slight recovery 2yrs ago by myself-no doctor, no counsellor. just pure willpower and like you completely tired of the situation.I know now that if i went to a counsellor/doctor i would be recovered or on the road. I just let my self fall again because i dont have any support.
that would be my advice get support, you dont have to go through it on your own. also i thought i was not sick enough to get help...when will we ever be sick enough!
i find it really inspiring to hear people talk of recovery and maybe ill get there you know.
If I can eat a perfect amount not to go up or down in weight I think I could do it but if I notice I have gone up I would just start fasting and restricting and start worrying all over again, I'm sure I could get myself to eat a good amount as long as I knew I wasn't going to go up in weight.
:( I have been trying recently to eat about 1300 - 1500 and I'm just going to see how it goes for a while (this is double my usual maybe more in some cases) before I try the whopping !!!1800!!! that the calorie calculator told me to eat.

I think you need some support, it's really hard doing it alone. If you don't want to see a doctor/therapist/real life friend we're here for you :) Just leave me a message if you feel like quitting and giving up and I pinky promise I will be there to support you the best I can!
I couldn't do it :'(, Not enough will power, plus people pressurizing me to stop and forcing me to eat things I don't want to has just made things worse, I guess I will try again one day but right now I am not ready to even try recover anymore.
the thing is, you have to think: is this the way I want to live for the rest of my life??
if your answer is no, then the sooner you can take that step for recovery..the better, because it won't dissapear by itself. You have to dare to give the other side a chance. And, hey! if you don't like it there.. then you can always lose the weight again! I mean, you know how to. But life isn't worth wasting away in a hospital bed as it was for me. I was tubefed for 2 months, and admitted to the hospital twice.. first time for 2 weeks, second time for 5 months, and then I was forced into an eating clinic for 4.5 months.. so talk about a waste of time! and who was there to see my effort it took me to lose the weight and look skinny?? NO ONE! the nurses, and my doctor! and my parents! all of whom thought I looked ill. So I advise you.. and it's gonna be hell..BUT, GET YOURSELF OUT OF THIS SHIT! you are worthy something a lot better! A life of freedom!
to ALL of you that read this:
YOU GUYS ARE GORGEOUS FROM THE INSIDE AND OUT! BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! YOU CAN DO IT.
remember.. fear is natural, fear is good... it just means you're growing.
