Hey guys,

After a LOT of convincing, my OH has gotten me to ring my doctor for help with my anorexia. I've suffered with it for over 5 years now and only recently was able to admit I had a problem.

I'm a little nervous that I'll be judged by my doctor but my OH is making sure I call them no matter what. I've been meaning to for a while but always managed to talk myself out of it.

So, tomorrow, first thing in the morning, I'm getting right on that phone and asking for the help I need! I know it'll probably take quite a long time to fully start my road to recovery, but this is the first step and I'm so excited about this. I'm finally taking control and I'm gonna kick anorexia's butt!!

~Alex

Well, i'm really glad that you have been persuaded to seek help.
I can understand your concerns about what the doctor might think, but I can assure you that they've probably seen all kinds of things in their career and they won't judge you in any way.
It sounds like you're really ready to work at recovery and you sound very positive, which is a great place to start. :)

Thank you, Somerset. :) My doctor was amazing, she weighed me and hid the number from me just in case, but I still got a little upset about it. I absolutely hate weighing myself but I know she had to. I'm getting a mental health assessment soon ans starting therapy, she gave me a Prozac prescription so it went better than I expected! :D
