I am hoping that with all this support I can pull myself out of this hole.

It bought back memories from when I was an inpatient at Renfrew.

I got an email from Renfrew (eating disorder clinic) today. It bought back memories from when I was there. I am keeping the folder from Renfrew so I can remember what I was taught there. Renfrew also has an email address so I can write them when times are tough. Once again thanks for...

I talked with somebody from the Help line and they got me thru the worst part.

I talked with somebody from the Helpline and they got me thru the worst part. Going back the dietitian would be hard for me since I don't do what she wants me to do. Thanks for talking with me you are helping me get things off my chest and out of my body and...

I couldn’t bring myself to eat the food my dietitian wanted me to nor cut down on exercise.

I just tried to purge and all I did was peed my pants. I feel so let down by my body. It wouldn't give up the food I ate. So what did I do instead? I ate 6 laxatives to force the food out of my body. I use to see a dietitian. She works...

Thanks for returning my message. Today is not a good a day for me. I met with my therapist and we got into some touchy areas. Then I came home, cut myself with a razor blade, ate some pizza then purged, then I took some laxatives. I know a food is good for me,...

I have been suffering of anorexia for as long as I can remember.

I have been suffering from anorexia for as long as I can remember. I spent 9 weeks in Renfrew and about 2 years going to a Registered Dietitian. I fear to put food in my mouth for I am afraid that it will turn to fat. I also see two therapists each week and...

I don’t want to be ill or anything, but the idea of being fat makes me think that I’d like to control my weight forever.

Thank you for responding so quickly and for your answers. I plan on seeing a doctor soon. You prompted me, though, to ask questions about my eating habits. I don't really talk about it, because I am pretty knowledgeable about eating disorders. I understand that it is a mental illness and that the "eating" part...

Is my friend too thin at 95 pounds?

I'm so glad I found your site on the Internet! Eating disorders are hardly acknowledged in Asia and I'm starting to get really worried about my best friend. My friend has been on this crazy diet for 6 months since we started freshman year at law school and she's lost 17 kilograms (37.4 pounds)! She...
