So, This will sound strange but here it goes. I think my mom is proud of the weight I have loss, even though I have done it in such a extreme way. When my parents first confronted me about my disorder my mom acted jealous and that is the reason I do not want to tell her again. I am at college now but I am spinning out of control and I now have developed depression as well. There is only one person here that knows my secret and that is because he went to the same high school as me and he is my best friend. I want to get help but I do not want my parents to find out. My school offers free counselling but if I tell them what is up they will tell my parents because of a form I filled out at the beginning of my semester. What I want to know is if I should tell other people around me or should I keep it a secret. I don't want people to know and look at me like im crazy, I just dont want head down the road im going and not be able to get back.View Thread
Well, the form is to let my parents know like everything if they ask, but I was looking up the counseling program and they say if I am harming myself in anyway they will have to inform a parent or guardian. I am over 18 so I was hoping that if I said they couldn't they wouldn't. I just don't want my parents to worry is all. Well, I can give it a try.View Thread
