so on another ed(eating disorder) forum i was reading through today i read a post made yesterday about a boy on the site ive read quite a few post by him and he's pretty awesome but goes through allot he hasn't been doing so well recently as far as eating so yesterday he posted a thread asking for advice he had woke up feeling strange so today i read the thread again his girlfriend who also has an Ed and an account on the site had commented it turns out that he had a heart attack yesterday afternoon he is in the Icu and things are looking grim this reminds how much damage an Ed can cause it is such a sad thing when a friend is lost so many times i have gone on forums such as these and people have simply stopped posting i often wonder if they just left the site because they where tired of it or they where dead this the reality of an Ed and any form of self harm when my friends don't talk to me i wonder if there still here it's a scary thing and it reminds me how important it is to recover

Recovery is always worth it. It may not always seem like it, but it's deadly, and awful. I've found myself wondering the same things - did these people just get whisked away to treatment centers? did they just leave the site? did they get even more sick? And the sucky thing about the internet is that we don't know. I'm really sorry to hear about your friend, and I hope he can pull through. :hug:

Also, this is more ED focused, so I'm going to move it there for you.

Yeah it's pretty awful. I remember a few years ago on this site a close friend telling me he was suicidal, but this time I could tell he was seriously in danger and I was in no position to call someone. He began having psychosis and then eventually stopped texting me. I didn't hear for him for months and so, naturally I assumed he had died which was heartbreaking. A few months later he returned though and had been in a psych ward.

It is the cold reality, but there's also the reality that almost all the people I new on this site 5 or 6 years ago, i'm still in touch with. And almost all are in recovery, or at the very least not nearly as bad as they where a few years ago.

I went out for pizza with a friend I met on here whom we both had EDs not so long ago! There really is hope x

Eating disorders really are horrible things. Everyone should feel comfortable in their skin and not do something that causes so much harm. I wouldn't want to lose anyone that way
