So I ummmm recently went back to an Eating Disorder after being sober for about 4 years. I haven't told anyone, and because of the medicine I am on my parents think it is normal for me to not eat as much as I did before. My medicine has a side effect of curbing your appetite. I really don't know what to do. I have lost seven pounds. I was 114 lbs and now I am 107 as far as I know. I try to eat but then I feel guilty and don't eat for the next day. I mean all I have had today is popcorn, two marshmellows, and four squares of starburst. I drink lots of water, though. I usually just eat dinner or bits of dinner. I am only 14 and I went to rehab for self harm and suicide attempts. I do not know what to do. I really need support.View Thread
My parents have never really been there for me I basically raised myself. I am in therapy but nothing really seems to be working out. I talk to my friends from rehab and they are all very supportive but none of them live in the same state as me.View Thread
