EATING DISORDERS

Postby Teenage struggle » Sun Jun 17, 2012 1:32 pm

I have just recently admitted to myself that I have an eating disorder and told my mum about it
She's taking me to the doctors tonight and I'm abit nervous and have no idea what to say
Can anyone give me a heads up on what to expect or what I should say?

Congratulations on talking to your mother about it. There is an old saying - a problem shared is a problem halved. Its hard to lose weight if you have no support.

Just be open and honest about what your issues are....no one will judge you, they will only want help.

Let us know how you go as it might be helpful for other teenagers in your situation.

They didn't say much
They wanted to book me in for a longer appointment to do a full assessment so I'm going back on Thursday
I can't wait to start getting help, my mind is literally driving my crazy

Stick in there...just remember to be patient. It will take time and the more restless you are over it the more disheartened you will be. You need to start looking on a positive side to small things that you have achieved in your day. Have you done anything today that you can say to yourself, yes I am glad I have done that. For example, refusing to eat something, walked somewhere,......you should be patting yourself on the back for speaking with your mother as that would have been extremely hard so that you can put in your positive ledger.

Keep your chin up, it will happen but not all today....many others are in the same boat so you are not alone.

Keep us in the loop of how you go on Thursday.

I asked mum to take me to the doctors tonight instead, my brain was a bit of a wreck today and I couldn't wait any more so we went in and waited for the next appointment.
I got mum to do most of the talking as I was kinda scared and didn't know what to say, my doctor was really nice though, his referred me to a psychologist which I will be seeing on thursday.
I've finally taken the first step to getting better, so I guess that will be the positive thing I can be proud of today!
Thank you for your support. Your comments on this post have been helpful
I think I want to keep posting about how I'm going and my journey to get better, just to sort of help me and get any feedback people may have to offer, an to maybe offer some help to anyone else out there suffering from any other sorts of eating disorders.
I know it will take a while and I will have to be persistent but I'm excited to get my life back on track, get healthy, get my happiness and confidence back and learn to have a normal relationship with food.
Hopefully through what I learn I will lose some weight too, I guess that's kind of an alterior motive I have to doing this.
