Others concerns


Hi all, I don’t feel like I have anorexia, but my family worried when I was younger that I had it. I don’t think I did then either if I’m honest, they just worried. But I am currently going through a very hard time emotionally and this has impacted every part of my life. Including my appetite and eating habits. I have no appetite, which is very unusual for me, but I am eating, I know I need to, I no longer enjoy it and it makes me feels sick but I am doing it. However I am really struggling with my parents watching my every move at meals times, monitoring how much I am eating I guess. They bought lots of chocolate and ice cream for me to binge on and are trying I guess to encourage emotional eating, and don’t seem to understand that I doing feel hungry. and that actually the last thing I want to do is eat a load of rubbish food. I know I am not eating as much as I used to be having them watch my every move is stressing me out more and I don’t really know what to do.

If anyone has any advice I would be grateful to hear it.

I really feel for you. It’s obvious that you are struggling, at the moment, but at the same time you are aware of your parents’ pain. My only suggestion would be for you and them to talk about each other’s feelings in the way you have written about them here. Maybe then you could finding a way to avoid triggering each other. XX
