sould i get help?.


hi, i recovered from anorexia

hi, i recovered from anorexia a few years ago,it took me ages and i had help at first but things were really hectic at the time and i lost contact with my therapist, ive been ok for about a year and a halp, but now i feel myself sliding back, i feel panic every time i eat anything,i excersise all the time, i think about calories and food constantly, i keep getting really upset and panicky and moody and i know iv lost weight, i dont want to be unhealthy i just want to be a bit thinner, but i don't think i can do it without going too far I feel aas though i need some help, but i also feel bad asking for it, like im not ill enough coz im still an ok weight. i feel like im loosing control. I dont know what to do... are experiencing are experiencing a relapse, which can be dangerous. I think it's important that you try to reconnect with the person/people who helped you before. The obsessions and fears with food and exercise will only get worse without help. You don't have to fall back into this, but at this point, you need to ask for help to get your 'footing' back, you know? You deserve to be well and free from this! Please seek help as soon as you can!

sunset..I am happy to offer

sunset..I am happy to offer any support that I can :)
You have many good things in your life, and I can tell that you truly do want to be able to enjoy them...your son, his wedding, but most of all, LIVING!!
I urge you to do whatever is necessary to get help. Call a therapist, ideally, someone who knows your history. Even if not, you need help, and I fear that the condition you are in will prevent you from being able to make rational decisions for your own well being. It's not a weakness to need help, or to ask for it. NOT doing anything is a weakness, and I do not believe you have a weak spirit!!
Please get some help, therapy, going into treatment, whatever it takes!! You deserve to recover and live a life of freedom!! Take good care...Jan
