We had a discussion yesterday about my eating habits and agreed that I am anorexic. He seems to think that (after 2 years) it hasn't gotten very far and that since I'm eating one meal a day (supper, and only because my mom makes me. When I can get out of it I do) it's not that big of a deal. He says he's slightly concerned but he's staying out of it until I stop eating that one meal.
What should I do? Should I let him only be slightly concerned? Or should I show him side effects and symptoms of anorexia? I asked him today and he said he honestly doesn't know much about eating disorders, other than the fact that sufferers need support and that they're "curable".
Keep in mind that I'm also not quite ready to "get over it" yet. I like the feeling of accomplishment that I get when I realize I've gone all day without giving in to temptation. So I don't want him to be so concerned he's force feeding me, but a little more concern about my health would be nice.
hi, it sounds like you are probily tacking in too few calares for the basic requernts of daily life. it also sounds like you are concernd about your own heath which id a very good start to recovery. it is a long road and your boy friend will need educating on how to help you. eating disorder charites websites are good for this, you will probaly also find them helpful. also talk to your docter about it as if you are sugnificanly under wate they can refer you to specilist help, and if you are less under waght might be able to get you dietery support and or councling to help tackle why you are not eating.
if nothing elce be kind to your body untill you can eat a heathy diet and use suplemets not in sted of food but to support you untill the food id enuf without them.
