It was almost two years ago now that i was pressured and coerced by both my parents and a couple of medical professionals into the mental health services (an eating disorder service), this caused me many problems and made me a lot worse than I was And well... look how far I've come, I did say to the professionals and everyone else how i didn't actually need the services. And... I PROVED IT! Nobody believed i could do it and everyone wanted me in the services because they thought that the ONLY way to recover from a mental disorder is psychiatric treatment, drugs, psychiatrists, hospitals and therapy. Well, they were wrong. Without a single eating disorder appointment or any other form of medical intervention, voluntary, coerced or forced, I have bested my anorexia. Admittedly i am still struggling with gaining weight, but I've always had trouble with that side of things, having a high metabolism i could eat endlessly and only put on a pound or two. So those who laughed cos I said i could do it by myself, or were doubtful, or were downright rude or abusive towards me for the simple reason being I didn't want psychiatric help (none of these things were said by anyone on this forum by the way so please don't take offense at anything I'm saying here), I was right. I did not need that kind of help.
