I have been battling anorexia for 17 years on and off. I am now 32 and I am tired of feeling fat all the time, and being depressed. Being depressed tends to make me not want to eat, other than looking at myself and feeling and thinking I am fat I barely eat, I am tired of this and want to change what can I do?
Hi Welcome, Try seeking an nutritionist or an eating disorder support group or a therapist who specialized in eating disorder. Will anorexia ever leave, for me, I say no. Im going to be 50 this year. It never really goes away but you can change the way you think, it will get better.
