Hi welcome Sorry no one has responded by now. Havent been on this board for while. What your experiences with your chest pain, I would check first with your doctor. The brain damage Im not sure of, I know for me my head is not clear, Im sluggish, no energy when I stop eatting and become depressed. Im anorexia for many years, Im also a smoker, we have a lot of similarities. If want to talk more this is a good place to come, its just been slow with replying. Keep writing if it helps.
Hi, Im sorry no one has answered your posting, Im not on very much these days, Im really not sure how to answer but will try.
Have you spoken to your primary doctor, maybe they could give you something that will keep you asleep during the nite. Try to eat a little more during the day. Do you exercise? Try walking to help with your weight and sleep. I try an walk as much as possible it helps with both.
Hi Welcome, Try seeking an nutritionist or an eating disorder support group or a therapist who specialized in eating disorder. Will anorexia ever leave, for me, I say no. Im going to be 50 this year. It never really goes away but you can change the way you think, it will get better.
Hi We all eat food that we feel later we should have eaten, trying to throw it up sounds a little extreme. If you dont do it often I would think too much of it but if it becomes a regular thing I would be concerned. I hope that helps a little. KateView Thread
I think I will always struggle. I feel we encourage others because it helps us too. Thats why these boards are helpful. We are here to give and get encouragement. We have all lived in each others shoes, know first hand what it feels like. Someone told me once they wanted to talk to me because I can talk the talk because I walked the walked or was it the other way around, LOL, it something like that.
I too am alone in all of this, its not easy. Post when you need too and help when you can.
If you keep it up, especially everyday, your medical issues will be worse and possibly be put admitted into the hospital. Hopefully knowing that will make you slow down. I know the summer makes things worse, I feel it too, I have no plans on getting into a bathing suit this year, unless its dark out and no one can see me. Ive been beating myself up all the time for letting myself gain the weight. The advice I can give you is what you gave me in the last post, go back re read it, they were wonderful words and mean a lot. Believe them because they are true for you too. KateView Thread
