I feel nervous about speaking about this as I know people have issues worse than me.
I am very scared about gaining weight, I feel I'll look uglier and people will negatively judge me. I have low self esteem and try to eat as little as possible when I can help it, however I have started to eat more when I'm with my friends or boyfriend but try to eat as little as possible at home but enough so that I don't start getting light headed again which happens occasionally when I haven't ate enough.
I'm always freezing cold and shivering, my hands and feet especially and my fingers and toes go white and numb and I have been diagnosed with low iron and folic acid however I am a vegetarian.
I weigh myself a lot of the time and feel devastated if I see an increase and weight is on my mind a lot of the time everyday. I have no scales anymore but weigh myself at BOOTS and the last time I did so I weighed 5 stone 13 lbs, I am 20 and 4 foot 11.3 inches with a BMI of approximately 16.7
I already have anxiety and depression but unsure if what I'm experiencing is an eating disorder too. I am going to a doctors appointment for a blood test next Thursday even though I keep cancelling the appoints, I don't want to waste their time.
