Hi everyone!  I'm new here and I have a question maybe someone can help me with.  I suffered from Anorexia/Bulumia at 11 yrs of age and experienced relapses here and there (last one was last spring, currently 21 yrs old).  I never went through any treatment (parents didn't believe in it-thanks alot mom and dad) and ever since I've had trouble dealing with stress, anxiety, etc.  Basically I take everything a lot harder than I should-wouldnt exactly call it depression but who knows.  I'm going to seak therapy soon and just wanted to know if anyone had any thougts, comments, especially anyone who's been through something similar.  Thanks!

I dont have alot to offer but my wife went thru the same thing when she was late teens and she didnt get help then but does now for various things and weight is one thing that causes her alot of depression and anxiety ,she is dealing with the weight issue much betternow all I can offer is I think you are doing the right thing by seeking help and goodluck

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Hi and welcome!

I have never had an eating disorder but I have suffered with depression and anxiety for most of my life. I was officially"diagnosed" in June and have since started with meds and therapy. It has helped a lot. I'm glad you are looking into therapy. I hope you find the help and relief you need.

Come back and let us know how yu are!!
