Since Janurary I've been a self harmer. Things have gotten more serious, and so have my stress. I believe I've recently devolped anorexia. Does this sound right? I feel fat. Disgusting. I'm always weighing myself, and usually starving. I just want to be pretty. I've tried purging, but I can't. Do I have it? Who should I tell? How can I tell my mom???
Mother's know when something isn't right with their kids so I'm sure your mother is already wondering what's going on with you. I know its hard to sit down and tell your parents stuff like this trust me I was the same way when I was younger I always thought my parents would freak out but now that I'm a mom I say just tell her don't wait anymore because you need medical attention and her support. Don't be scared she will be so relived that you came to her for help I promise. There are doctor's that can help you don't live like this life is too short to be living like that.
