Hi i am 15 years old and i am a girl. i weigh 90 pounds (6 and a half stone) and i have been struggling with my weight. i am very depressed and people at school ask me "are you okay?" or "you look like your going to cry." i dont think i smile alot at school unless im with close friends. I never tell my mum if i have purged because she would just say the same old thing, she would say that im beutiful and i shouldnt change the way i look for anyone. but some days she would lash out because she already has enough on her plate with my sister who has anxiety and other difficulties. i dont tell her because i dont want to burden her with my problems. but i tell my counceller that she knows i do it. when she dosent .i lack concentration and this affects my work in school. i sometimes have thrown up once or twice a day for continuous days or weeks. ive stopped but i have urges to do it again, whats worse about throwing up on and on is the taste and smell does not help at all. it makes me shiver and throw up huge amounts in one go. my teeth are in not a bad condition but it may get worse. i sometimes cry on a day feeling low and worrying about the next day. i wonder what have i got to look forward to. whats the point? i attend councelling for a few months now (camhs) and i just burst out crying for no reason because i have been bottling up my feelings up for so long. i dont think my teachers know which is a good thing, and ive only confided in a few students who i can trust. i should be happy and fun at 15 years old but im not. i find it easier in the school days as i can go without food for 8 to 9 hours without breakfast. i havent eaten breakfast tbh scince september mainly because i have no time. any help please?
