so i started starving myself when i was 15(i'm 19 now)and i got down to 80 pounds, i'm 5'1. i recovered on my own when i was 16 and i went a little overboard with eating, and got up to 135, so i was overweight. i had a boyfriend who i thought was good but he wanted me to be skinnier, so i started dieting. it was taking too long for me to drop the weight, so i started eating 300-500 calories a day. i still didn't look how he wanted me to look, so i started only eating rice. i got pretty sick, but only down to 100 pounds so i thought i was fine. that's only a little underweight for me. but i was pale, i had really low blood pressure(65/84), my hair was falling out, i was cold all the time, my body temperature was 96.3, and i now have hypoglycemia.
i didn't realize it was a problem until i caught a glance at myself in a window and i looked horribly bony. i have since gained 3 pounds and i am trying to eat more. but i've noticed since i started eating normally, 2 weeks ago, i am nauseous and i have been getting migraines and i'm not sleeping well. i'm wondering if that's happened to anyone else? i'm eating 1200-1400 calories a day now. my friend told me it's just my body getting used to food again and it's sort of rejecting all of the food i am feeding it. is that normal?
recovering from this sort of eating problem is a long and difficult road, and do not be suprised if you have small relapses that is normal aswell. firstly try to get a referal to a dietition or netrisalist fron your familt docter as they will be able to help you move back towords a balanced hethy diet. alsoit may help to get counsling to deal with the isues which trigerd the whole problem in the first place, and help prevent it reacering.
also find a friend who you can be truly honist with who will stick by you watever hapens. also do see you docter about the other problens you are having as they are probaly all related to the eating problems you have. do not rush it but let things take there time as nothing especaly recoving from eating problems shouls be rushed.
