We need to brainstorm some things we can do to help ourselves/each other. It seems like we are all having a hard time. So what can we do to support each other?

It's so hard to know how to support you ladies on-line, i can't give you a hug, or go out to coffee, or sit and just chat.

What can i do to help ya'll?

I'm not sure what i need except just to be able to come here and say i'm having a hard time. everything i eat is a battle to eat it or keep it down. on top of that my DH got us gym memberships which is great but at the same time i can use it negativity to loose weight vs. getting stronger and healthier. I wish i knew why i can't just snap out of it. why this relapse is sucking me in so much vs the smaller ones i've had after having my kiddos. So much is going on and changing and days and moments are going by so fast i feel like i can barely touch the day and it's gone.

i agree its hard to know what to do for you all, i wish i could do more than just listen, it would be so nice to be able to talk with someone who understood

im not really sure what i need yet, im still having a really hard time and i tend to keep it to myself, even though it helps to get it all out. Honestly just knowing others understand and that i have a safe place to come is helpful to me

They have a chat room here, what if we all met in there a couple of times to have "coffee"?

I think the hardest part for me is it is so confusing, secretive and isolating that I don't really know what to say. I kinda feel it's just part of life at this point.

Alethia please try to meet with a personal instructor 1x a month that knows you have an ED. So they can help you come up with a plan for the month. Hopefully it can help you not to relapse more.

On a up note kinda I started my meds again yesterday so hopefully it'll help. I'm also keeping a food journal, I know bad idea, so my therapist can see it. Hopefully she can help me because she's at a complete loss about me. Since I'm horrible at talking she seem to think I don't need therapy and I don't see the point. I'm kinda worried I'm sabotaging things that would probably help, not meaning to ofcourse.

i would love to meet for "coffee" in the chat room, that sounds awesome

im thinking of trying to find a therapist, ive never been before but i probably should, i just hate to admit i need help, im so shameful about it i wish i didnt feel that way, because i think therapy would probably be a good thing for me

Try to find a place that has an intake that you fill out before seeing anyone. It was much easier to check the box and fill out the paper then actually say it.
