Hi I Am New Here And Wanted to Say Hello

I am 42 and have had an ed most of my life, I was anorexic as a young adult /teenager, then bulimic, on and off.......
Well in may my anoerxia and bulimia started back up and I lost to much weight, and was having heart problems from my electrolites being imbalanced...And from starvation.....Finally I was forced in the hosp/ed clinic, where they forced me to drink ensure then eat...So all that did was make me want to go home and lose it all, I have.Now I want to add mostly I have been anorexic, for mths now....I also am not sure if I want to get better I liked being anorexic, but I am at binging again and it is freaking me out bc I cannot purge it up? So that has totally freaked me out. So starting tomorrow I have to stop eating again and exercising..Which I do anyway.......Oh and I also take laxatives........
Anyway not really sure why I shared that, because I doubt it will really help anyone, but maybe I needed to see it written?

One Question
Hi you rpost sounded like something I would have written at so many different points. I thought I would just ask you if you feel like you have anything to live for? Because I know when I feel the most hopeless, lonely and unhappy that is when my ed is the worst and I have felt that way alot. I have litterally told my therapist that I didn't care about getting better at all but maybe the key is in finding something u do enjoy and want to, if not live for, just even do for the time.
