Hi everyone. Im new here and just wondered if anybody else has had problems getting help. Ive had anorexia since 11 yrs old ( now 39 ) and i have had the most appalling help from the doctors ( i live in the uk..... say no more!) I was hospitalised at 21 weighing 4 stone 2lbs ( im 5'4") put on a drip cos they said i was dehyrated. I satarted bleeding ( period like down below) and because of that they said there was nothing wrong and told me to go home cos i was having a period. I had a heartattack that same day.18 yrs on ive still had no help and they continue to say im too old to have an eating disorder, even tho this did start when i was 11 and tried for help then. Im currently 5 stone 4lbs and pretty much at my wits end. Why cant i be normal? Everytime ive gone for help im either too young, too ill or too old! And the last think the doc said was ' well you're just weird, start drinking you'll get help for that'
