Anorexia help groups

Common Questions and Answers about Anorexia help groups


Avatar f tn Look them up in local YWCA or local Meetup groups or other non profit resources available to you. Many groups exists in many cities and thousands!! At these groups you will meet others in the exact situation you are in. Get yourself a buddy or two from the local group, and help each other get to the healthy weight. I think you already learned this from the past, that by doing things alone, it don't always lead to success.

Avatar f tn I'm having a very tough time at college. I have been trying to recover from Anorexia for over a year. I was doing well at home. I was making my own foods and increasing my calories. I moved away for college and I want to go home. I'm doing much worse than before. I cannot make my own food since I live in a dorm and I always feel tired because I can't sleep right, my bones and joints ache, I get dizzy, urinate frequently, and feel very full after I eat anything.
Avatar f tn Hey I have an anoxeria...i'm not sure for how long probably for around 6-8 years....I want to get help...but I don't know how and is there a way that I can recover wout outside help?
Avatar f tn Yes you can have stomach pain along with many other symptoms. Anorexia and Anorexia Nervosa are actually two different things.. Anorexia is simply not eating, it doesn't necessarily mean you don't WANT to eat, just a lack of eating for whatever reason. Anorexia Nervosa (what people are usually talking about when they use the term Anorexia) is when you don't eat because you think you are fat, or you have a strong fear of gaining weight.
Avatar f tn Following up with a nutritionist and a therapist can help you understand the causes behind this and help support you in your recovery. The Bella Vita offers free support groups Mondays at 6pm in our Los Angeles and Woodland Hills locations. If neither of those are in your area you can go check out ANAD for support groups offered near your location. You may want to go to The Bella Vita website and subscribe to our newsletter! It has a bunch of helpful tips and articles.
Avatar m tn Looking for insight on my girl friends malnutrition. she has a history with anorexia but has managed it herself over the years. We've been together 3 years now I've seen her success with routine eating but hardly cosistent. She cycles to work, works 3-4 jobs and manages to find time to workout or swim 1-2 times a day plus consumin considerable amounts of water and eating light meals here and there. I believe these habits contribute to her insecurity of gaining weight.
918035 tn?1274644533 I'm familiar with those same voices...they are the anorexia. Don't listen. You are worth so much more and you deserve to be healthy and have a good life. And I know you don't want to put more stuff on your family b/c of the death, but anorexia is serious and you need help to recover. I'm sure your family will be glad you told them. Yeah, maybe they will be mad about what you're doing to yourself, but that's just because they don't know anything about anorexia.

Avatar f tn m scared i might become anorexic, But whenever i eat i get depressed, i need help please help me, before things get outta hand ];
Avatar f tn What I do know is that the therapy and the groups will help you to learn to stay clean and deal with whatever issues may be causing you to use and abuse the medication. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of this time. Get humble, listen and learn. this is a great opportunity for you so take advantage of it. You will soon be on your way to getting well. It is always quiet on the weekends here so please be patient while other members come in and can perhaps shed some light on this for you.

Avatar m tn Hi about three or so years ago I went through a long period of anorexia nervosa, I was checking labels, eating barely any fat foods, always feeling terrible if i aint something unhealthy, and on top of that running 10 miles and working out every day because I thought i was fat. Once then period ended, I immediately began to binge eat at every meal, and would get incredibly bloated and distended (pregnant).
Avatar n tn Dear kate306, Your gastrointestinal system could definitely be thrown off from your anorexia. Your current anxiety could be the culprit for your diarrhea. Anxiety and Anorexia often go hand in hand. Seeking medical attention for your diarrhea is recommended. Getting to the root of your anxiety and decreasing your anxiety is critical. For more information on anorexia, visit the bella vita website. Best, Dr.
