Hi giuys, i'm 17 and starting college in like two days...I have really hard classes and i'm scraed and to top it all off, I am dealing wiht two eating disorders- mostly anorexia and sometimes bulimia too. I was in th hospital fo anorexia for a month and a half but I dont think it helped any. I'm so scared about having to deal with all the work at college hen I feel like health question every single morning. I don know what to do. Has anyboy else dealt with or is dealing with some of the same issues that I am? Please please answer..I am so nervous.
How are you feeling? I'm recovering from bulimia, so you can see that someone here understands you and is free to listen to you. Do you want to tell me more about your eds? Send me a private message or an email, if you feel better, and i'll answer as soon as I can. I guess that you must understand that most people are out on holidays now, so it's harder to get an answer, but don't ive you.
I'm starting my last year in college and i'm still dealing with my ed, but i'll not let it take the advantage of me again, though it's something I deal with everyday, just like you said you do.
Hey thank you so much for writing back...It so made me feel better that someone replied. I really really am grateful that you wrote back. Yeah, like I said, I just turned 17 (today actually) and I am a freshamn in college, I start classes tomorrow and i'm soooo scared. I feel that i'mnot smart enough to make it through college because of the work people say you have to do. Im afraid I wont make it through college...I feel like its only for smart people.
I've been in the hospital for anorexia for a month and a half. I dont think i'm doing that much better and I am also bulimic(which my parents and doctors dont know about)
i dont know, i'm just worrying today, havent been doing much else *sigh*. Well thanks agin, so much for replying to me....And thanks for taking the time to read this. I hope I havent bothered you with all my stupid problems.
First of all: happy birthday! Live your day as much as you can, ok? You don't have your birthday everyday, so pus all your bad thoughts aside and have fun, ok?
Then, you don't have to thank me from repplying, that's what we at the forum do as far as we can.
College is not something impossible to deal with; if that's something that you've fought for and that you wanted to do, then you deserve to enjoy it. About the classes and the subjects, you know that there will be ups and downs, things you like, things you don't, but that's normal. You are not worse than anybody else there, are you? You are there with them too! :)

i really think that you should tell your doctors, at least, and, if you feel comfortable, to your parents too (i understand it's something hard to tell; I too have not told my parents about my bulimia, and, somethimes, i've hidden things from my psychologist and from my nutricionist, but I found out that wouldn't help me - I had to take a deep breathe and tell my doctors all of it. And it worked so much better, because they understood me better and helped me more).
I also feel that being in the hospital doesn't help you, because probably you are scared of going there again if they now this, but don't, ok? I also thought about a million things before I tell them a few things, but then we talked and managed to find a good way out of my problems and fears.
I know what you mean when you say you're kind of scared for not doing a lot, but I was feeling the same lately, because I was on holiday out and did absolutelly nothing the whole day! But today we came back and I realised that that fear was non-sense, because I was checking my feedind everyday to make sure that it was regular and stuff.
So, I hope i've helped you, i'd like to hear something from you! =)
