I have been suffering from an ED for several years, and despite finding that I can manage meals better than in the past, I have a phobia of sitting and of being unable to exercise. If I have to sit down for more than 20mins 'in one sitting' or for more than a certain total time each day, I become uncontrollably nervous, anxious, upset and I have to do all sorts of crazy rituals to combat the extra sitting I believe I have done. It's the same with exercise. This obsession impinges on my life hugely and restricts what I can do, and Im incredibly unhappy because of it. Does anyone have any suggestions or has had a similar experience? Is this ridiculous? Are my fears founded? I feel like I need reassurance that sitting is ok, but I really don't believe that it is. Thank you
