Hi, I too am struggling with an eating disorder. It is very very hard and does take professional help to get better. I had to stop going to therapy because I am now broke and can't afford it anymore, and boy can I tell the difference. I was doing so much better when I was in therapy. I want to go back but I can't right now. I will be part of you support team, I know how hard the struggle is everyday. BTW I have binge eating disorder and anorexia.
Thank you so much for sharing your story. You kinda remind of myself in a way.
It's especially hard to talk about personal things especially if you are confused by your behavior yourself. I've been struggling with anorexia/bulimia for a while now and I sometimes deny it. When you get sucked into the world of eating disorders, it's very hard to break free. The best I can tell you is to really believe in yourself to get better and kind your son in mind. It will be a long recovery, but you must let your doctor know how you've been feeling and eating. The only way you can beat this is to receive and accept help from others. You can't do this alone-that's also why you've come here! Remember that we all support you and no one on these forums is going to judge you or tell you you're wrong. I wish you all the best!
Grab this opportunity for treatment with both hands. I am on your support team, you know that goes without saying! You cannot ignore an eating disorder..it will take over your life. Four weeks is not that long if it saves you and let's your son grow up to know a healthy mom.
Good Morning. You have the support of all of HW and I say take the 4 week stay at the treatment center. I feel this may save your life as you will continue to lose weight, your nutritionn status will continue to disintegrate and you will end up very sick.
This is your chance, IMHO, grab the brass ring and do it for you. You have found a good program with the help of your therapist.............go for it.
