906587 tn?1242430142 Have you talked with a close friend or a loved one about this? I hope that you do and are able to find a caring doctor to help you.
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 I am developing anorexia, but I don't feel bad for it at all. I don't feel compelled to get help, etc. I don't feel like I'm good enough for people to care. I've recently dropped 13 pounds in two weeks. I don't think I deserve food either, so why bother getting help for something I don't deserve?
Avatar m tn Try hot baths and a heating pad for those aching/burning/crawling muscles. It really does help. Also walking will help with the restless legs. I know it sounds crazy to walk when you feel so bad, but it really does help. Good luck to you!!!!!! I hope you feel better soon.! Stay strong, it really does get better.

He said “well then, I guess you better call Dr. D or go to the hospital.” I got exasperated, and reminded him I’d already talked to the MS clinic nurse who said even if this is a relapse, they don’t treat numbness unless it is causing a problem with functioning.

A brighter day is on its way, and many more yet to come. I hope this helps you and stay strong.
Avatar n tn She has also been in hospital in the past for 6 months recovering from anorexia. She has a long mental health history and is now 20 and is reluctant to speak with anyone about anything. A little over a month ago she started becoming more secretive with food not eating at all even in front of me. I caught her out a few times on not eating and having pretended she was.
Avatar n tn i truly do not know what to do as i feel i am getting worse. i have a crippling fear of my loved ones dying or being in great pain. my last most recent episode has to do with my mother who is 70 years old and recently had a screening colonoscopy done. i was so petrified of her having the procedure that i did not eat or sleep the night before or day of. i was petrified she would die on the table. i cried the entire time she was in there and she came out fine.
Avatar n tn For some its great and others it not so great to open that up and tell your loved ones. If they are not or have never been addicts, they MIGHT not understand, BUT if you are close like Lukey said, hopefully they love you UNCONDITIONALLY!! Only you know your family, but either way, YOU need to make a plan to stop before it gets any worse, and more likely than not, it will get worse. Wishing you all the best!
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 I been having horrible fatigue I don't want do anything just lay in bed and my wonderful husband cleans the house, cooks for me and my daughter, he takes care of her most of the time which right now it's horrible bcus of her teething I just love him so much I so grateful to have such a great dad and husband(:
918035 tn?1274644533 If you value life and your loved ones and your future you will find it in your self to get the help you need, because if you are still thinking you need to lose weight, you probably are not strong enough yet to fight this all on your own. You can start by changing your username, fatty00 can't be helping your confidence. You have to truly want to get better and love yourself enough to follow through the best you can.
Avatar m tn your friend is need of some expert help. you may need to get proffessional help dealing with this..being physical with u is not ok that is a dangerous situation to be in. a person cannot always solve everything. and your friend needs to take responsibility for thier actions. you may need to leave this situation. is thier family involved? They really should be.. this is dangerous and they may need to be hospitalised to get thier treatment under control..
Avatar n tn I can't believe that no one has responded to your question!! I am so sorry for that. Coping with the loss of a loved one is a very personal situation for each child. There are so many factors that weigh into how the child copes. I'm not an expert by any means as to what you might want to do other than to say the child should receive some sort of emotional therapy after the event. Even if they say they don't want or need it.
Avatar n tn You have to avoid being alone at times when you are finding it tough, think about it, you wouldnt try to overcome any other chronic illness without the help and suport of loved ones. If this is too difficult I strongly recommend seeing a counceller or even starting a journal. You are at a turning point now.Continuing down the path you are on will lead to nothing but further isolation, unhappiness and regrets.
1327415 tn?1294057889 i can feel this taking control and i know now that it can kill me but as some of you will know it is impossibly hard to fight and it swallows you up. i need help while i have some control left. soon i will be too sick to ask so please. even if you have no faith in your advise... write it. please!
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 I'm am 16 years old I am on dance team and I consider myself a healthy person but the past few months I've noticed that I'm not notmally hungry and when I am hungry I get the felling that I'm very hungry but then only end up eating two or three bites of my food.I've always been a picky eater and have always eatin like a bird(eating a little bit alot of different times) but never really felt like this.
