I developed anorexia


Hey everyone,

I've been struggling with quite severe social anxiety for 7 years now. It's because of this that recently I've developed anorexia and now, honestly, I don't feel lonely anymore??? Like I have no desire to interact with anyone???? What is wrong with me???

Anorexia is a very serious problem. Are you seeing a doctor at all?

Not much better here in Australia tbh. But we can see a GP easily. I've found some of them to be fairly helpful - and a lot cheaper than seeing a shrink.

Maybe one of them can even help a bit? It'd probably be a very good idea if your diet hasn't been good lately anyway.

Dont know if its okey that im asking,
Are you puking on purpose? Are you puking because the food feels bad at your stomach, like its hard to breath? Or is it only about the physical image? Are you puking on a daily basis?
Dont feel obligated to answer and i hope you will feel better and take care of yourself!

Um anorexics don't puke their food. That's bulimia. Anorexics just highly restrict their calorie intake.
