    Hi total eclipse, thank you :)
    I have support from a CPN (community psychiatric nurse) but I'm just feeling so down about my eating disorder lately. I can't seem to move on from it, and to be honest I don't know if I'm even ready to.
    Thank you so much, it's nice to know that I can talk to people on here and that people care.

    Have a nice day xxx

    Have you told your CPN about how you are feeling? I am not familiar with having an eating disorder, but like with any disorder, you become so used to having it even though it makes you feel like complete and utter shit, that when it is time to let go and get well, it becomes difficult because that illness has been apart of you for so long. Sometimes recovery means feeling worse before feeling better, and these feelings of not being able to move on are normal. But it is important to talk about your feelings, and your fears as bottling them up only makes you feel worse. Keep reaching out hun :hug:

    Hi butterfly,
    Yes my CPN knows how I'm feeling lately, but I suppose there's little she can do.
    I just feel so helpless at the moment :(

    I am so sorry you are grappling with this ED. Does the CPN have a lot of expereince helping people who are dealing with anorexia? And if not, do you think you might want to ask her about getting help from someone who does?

    I know its horrible thing to deal with. And part of the disease, as I am sure you know, is that people are not sure they want to recover from it. But please, please try your hardest to keep going with the actions of recovering. Even though it feels wrong to you. Way too many people lose loved ones because of the grip that Anorexia takes on people. Please fight it with everything you have. Even though you really dont want to. Some people decided to do it when it is too late. Please keep fighting even if you have that "voice of ana" telling you messages that make you want to eat almost nothing. You matter. No matter what you may think :hug:
