needing a friend
 
ive had an eating disorder since i was 13 at 14 i was diagnosed with anorexia while living with my grandma. my grandma was in denial about the disorder and so when she sent me to live with my mom it was never mentioned and my sociological records where never recovered. i did good for a while after i moved in with my mom but now im 17 and i relapsed into this disorder almost two years ago. I have a therapist but the thing is he doesn't understand my eating disorder or take it seriously. I want to have someone who i can talk about my eating disorder who will support me but no one knows i have it and i don't feel comfortable talking with anyone i know

we here will always be listening when you need a friend of course. still I think you probably need another therapist if the one you have doesn't take your eating disorder serious. are there any sort of self help groups where you live?

Hm yeah okay that's true..if you do something like that parents will always know. so if you don't want your family to know anything about it I guess you can just seek help via internet or so.

I think the same, you should talk to your mom: you'll probably see that she support you.

I can understand not wanting to tell anyone. I've had an eating disorder since last Summer. Actually, I didn't eat much at all until about the end of last Summer when school started. I was diagnosed with malnutrition and mild diabetes (I drank an incredibly unhealthy amount of apple juice). When school started, it got kinda better for a while. Now, I think it's starting up again. I don't talk about it with anyone really.

I'm not sure what the situation with your mom is, but if she isn't mean to you or anything, I think it's worth trying to talk to her if you really think you need help. Also, you can message me about the details of it and I can talk to you about it. I'm no professional, but I'll talk with you.

i can't PM you, maybe you can PM me?

BUT if you need someone to talk to i'm game, i didn't grow up with an eating disorder but still had some stuff growing up that I wish i had someone to talk to about it but small town friends were great people just not the right people to talk about what I needed to talk about with
