Hi. I think I have anorexia and bulimia but I'm scared to tell anyone. My friends know because they see me bin my lunch and they see me run to to the toilet after I've eaten. They've even see me faint a few times at school. But I don't want to tell people. I'm worried they'll judge me or think that I'm too fat to be anorexic. It's hard with my mom and dad too because at first I wasn't careful and just refused to eat and now they monitor my eating. I recently got medical help for my anxiety and last week my GP weighed me and noticed that I had apparently lost more than a stone in a month. She asked me if I was anorexic or bulimic because having anxiety and the wight 'loss' are apparently medical red flags. I was too scared to tell my GP what I thought because my mom was next to me. Also if I tell my GP what I think then they will obviously tell my teachers and I don't want people to think I'm being an attention seeker. Can anyone tell me what I should do? Any advice? xx
