people, including my mum and dad have said in my youth that i was anorexic and have been sectioned for hearing voices and neglecting myself. like, not washing, eating or moving. i know the condition has a lot of stigma and is hard for people to understand.
i myself don't know much. i do know all illnesses are individual so the affect is independent to the character. even if the disease is characterised to be the same in all people suffering.
i have not got the diagnosis from the doctor because i was passed on schizophrenia but on closer analysis i think i was dismissed. for many years being sectioned i didn't have a diagnosis so they had to say something.
i remember waking up from a dream and writing about anorexia saying and telling myself i needed help. that was over 14 years ago. and my mum saying i am in my twenties and before in my teens. i ignore them but i'd like to help myself in this way with all the mis-information as to how i can be fitter. and how my body can function better if i treat it better but how when its mental everything i do.
i have problems in my mind, body and spirit. they argue with each other ie. i don't feel a whole person.
