Hi. I have been struggling with anorexia since the age of 9. My mum took me for help at that age but they said i was too young to have an eating disorder and they couldnt help me. At the age of 15 i was worse and took an overdose but again i was told i was was immature, i would grow out of it and even the consultant nurse said i was an immature cow and needed to grow up! The nurse did report him for this tho. Aged 21 with still no help i weighed 4 stone 10 lbs and was told i was too ill for help. Im now 42, had 2 heart attacks, my bones are pretty much cream cracked and now ive been told im too old for help. Weight at the moment is 5 stone 5lbs. Why cant i get the help i need. I live in nottinghamshire which may explain it! I just need some sort of help but not getting any. Please help
