    Will anorexia ever leave
    tiredofbeingblue posted:
    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?
    lostkate responded:
    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.

    Natkc57 replied to lostkate's response:
    Maybe you should go to a Mental Health Clinic in your area they can help also your doctor might prescribe medication to take to curb the binging.
