  • I definitely suggest going to counseling...please don't wait until something even worse happens to you. I had a minor problem with an eating disorder years ago that stemmed from hearing people talk about my weight. I just started working out and got healthy the right way and stopped starving myself. It might make you feel better to get yourself into a good workout routine and definitely see a counselor. Good luck!

  • I haven't had an eating disorder, but I have had some experience in dealing with them in other people. If you aren't finding the counseling sessions beneficial, you may have just not found the right person for you. Or you may prefer a support group--have you searched for any meetings in your area? Many people find the camaraderie and understanding from groups of others to be more helpful than individual therapy. Any chance you could go to an actual rehabilitation center?

  • hugsI've suffered with bulimia for years, when I get stressed it is 10x worse I am to the point that I can't really eat anything and I will vomit easily.... So your not alone, It is a hard thing to defeat.... I think you should try a counsler, they might be able to help... GL and stay healthy and f*ck what your family says, your beautiful
