I don't have an eating disorder so I'm not sure if this is OK to post here. If not please delete.

I'm a type 2 diabetic. But the last few weeks I've only been allowing myself small amounts of food in the hope I can lose weight. I know this isn't the right way to do it. I feel so guliry everytime I eat. And feel like I need to punish myself for it.

I have no one I can talk to about this.

Stick to a diabetic diet. Diabetes is nothing to mess with. I know someone who just lost their leg because of it.

I think low carb is the way to go, then you still eat decent meals.

I know how bad diabeties can be I have a friend who has so many health problems because of years of high sugar levels. I don't want to end up like that.

I can't eat normally anymore. I'd rather not eat at all and if I had my way I wouldn't but I leave with my friend who tries to help
