Re: death

You're not pathetic. Eating disorders LIE to us. Big time. They are diseases that tell us things that just aren't true. That's what is happening to you. It's tragic about your friend. Life is a precious gift and even though we go through horrible things there are always good, wonderful things too. As long as there is life there is hope.

I struggle with anorexia and bulimia too and I can relate to what you posted. I've struggled for a long time and am just now facing the issue, really facing it. I think you're strong and brave to come on here and post about this asking for help.

Are you still receiving any help with these issues? I know you were awhile back. I think you need to keep trying to get help. Don't give up because there is hope for this. I believe that for you and hope you can believe it for yourself.

Remember, eating disorders are good at LYING to you. Lies. It's hard to sort out what is the truth sometimes, but I know for a fact, 100%, that being dead is not a better option.

As Janet has said, your feeling of hopelessness is a symptom of depression, not an indication of your future.
