I’ve just been diagnosed with atypical anorexia. I’ve been told I pose risk to myself as I’m close to being ‘underweight’ and diagnosed as anorexic.
I’ve got in a fixation of starving myself and was finding my only happiness in life - in my weight loss. But now I am starting to feel so ugly, my boobs are shrinking, my collar bones stick out. I still feel like my stomach and legs are too big. I’m scared if I eat then I’ll gain weight and then I’ll be fat everywhere again. I enjoy the control I have of not eating, this brings me happiness and a feeling of success. How can I be happy with my appearance? I hate myself

Sorry to hear your struggling in this way.
I hope you one day can let your goal go of having the perfect appearance.
Think it gives more stress than what your looking for.

Have you been able to go to doctor or a specialist? You seem very self aware and you are honest about what you are feeling. Perhaps it is time to go to someone who can give you better perspective.
