It can't still be Anorexia

I have an Eating Disorder, I'm aware of that. Years ago, it was Anorexia; A lot has happened in that time, I have gained and lost a lot of weight over the years. I'm still afraid of the scale, since I stopped using it hourly, it has been something I'm reluctant to get near. I know I'm low, it has become difficult to eat enough while trying to, and I use Ensure and Powerbars like a crutch, which gets mo nowhere far. I fall back into this again and again and again, and each and every time denial stops me from dealing with it until something happens I can't ignore like passing out or going blind for a few seconds when I stand up too quickly. I look at my self in the mirror and think I'm dwindling away, and gotten 40+lbs under attractive. I want to gain weight, I want to eat more, it's just hard, and falls by the wayside. It can't still be anorexia. It's just as scary, the resources appear unavailable, and I don't know what to do.

It could be, thats what happened to me. I was Aneroxia in my twenties, I am now in my 40's, started to diet, well, things got out of hand. There were also other issues going on which didnt help. Have you seen a doctor to rule out maybe something else? Whats going on in life that might have triggered it? I see Anorexia, similar too Alcoholic, an Alcoholic needs to stay away from places that serve alcohol, Anorexia needs to stay away from scales. That is just my opinion.

That may not have helped but Im hear to listen if you want to write more. This is a good place, it may be slow at time for a reply but it has helped me a lot.
