I know I have an eating disorder, and it's starting to scare me... how should i tell my boyfriend i need help?

Hi Jamierae,
Have you seen a doctor or an eating disorder professional for help? In terms of your boyfriend, you could start by saying that you have some things in your life that you have not known now to cope with, and you have been trying to cope by doing certain things with food....(whatever that is). Or you could explain to him that you don't feel good about yourself, and you thought that by dieting you would feel better, but that it got out of control. Be honest, that's the most important thing, and ask him if he is willing to educate himself about what you are going through, and if he can support you in getting help. Please seek help, even if your boyfriend doesn't quite get it right away! Take care ?

Thank You, I actually made an appointment with a doctor for tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes. With my boyfriend, I know he has noticed my weight loss, but hasn't said anything to me about it, and so I'm just really nervous about telling him... But thanks for the advice, I'll keep it in mind...

Good luck! Please be honest,
