Hi Lollipop24 , I don't know where you are in your recovery so I am sorry if my message is not relevant or helpful . I think first of all it's good that you are recognising you are relapsing & asking for help. If you have friends or family close to you and helping you on your recovery I think you need to be honest with them & tell them what's going on. They might just feel that you are doing ok , especially if this is what you tell them. I would also suggest going on to Beat Eating disorders website. They have lots of advice & can point you in right direction. Recovery is not a straight line , it does go up & down but please stay with it & know that you deserve a life without your ED. With love xx

thank you for your reply, I find it hard to tell friends and especially family what’s going on because I don’t want them to worry or I feel like a burden to them. Thank you for your help xx

Ok , I get that but from my experience as a carer of my daughter who has anorexia we are more than happy to support her in her recovery. We have been there since her diagnosis 4 years ago & I have never felt she is a burden. Yes of course we worry but what parent doesn't worry about their child. This disease affects the people around the person with the ED too, I am sure your family/friends would rather be involved in helping you fight the ED rather than just feeling helpless & watching you suffer on your own. The more people you have on your side helping you fight this the better xxx
