Hi everyone. have been suffering from anorexia for 8 years ever since my mom died. just tend to ingore the fact that I have this and live my normal life. I own a business so am busy working all day. I'm good at hiding it so people think skinny and a competitive dancer and formal international elite figure skater.
Its gotten to a point where family members talking to me until progress is made. my doctor says in good health. what should do?
You know you need help and it sounds like your doctor isn't really hearing you. Talk to him/her more seriously about what is going on with you and please consider therapy for yourself. It sounds like there are some issues which need to be worked on to help you.
And keep talking here if it helps. It can be quiet here, but others do look in and you may find solace in knowing you're not alone and that there are others here along with you struggling with some of the same issues.
You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
