Greetings all. I am addicted to pro-ana (pro-anorexic) web content, especially "thinspirational" images. I am very sick right now and know that I must stop this addiction before I go into recovery for my eating disorder. Feedback?
I feel like I need to be in hospital again I am so suicidal and psychotic at night time.... but I just don't want that life. I want to be able to live on my own and take care of myself or not live at all.
It sounds like you've been going through a tough time and the people and resources that are "supposed" to help aren't. I can identify with that. It's extremely challenging to feel safe or know how to get better when the resourses we're reaching out to are saying they "can't" help us.The thing that is hard for me is my fear that those in a position to do not want to help me.
Even though it sounds like it's a crummy experience...I say, keep on going!!! Who cares how many times you've been there. If you are in danger of hurting yourself or others...the hospital is where you need to be.I am somewhat "hated" in every emergency room in Edmonton because I am there so much... so I'm always given a hard time when I go for help.
Thank you Nancy. I see my therapist on Tuesday, which I suppose when I think rationally is not too bad.
You are right about the discrepancies in my thinking. The thing that is hard for me is my fear that those in a position to do not want to help me. I am somewhat "hated" in every emergency room in Edmonton because I am there so much... so I'm always given a hard time when I go for help. And being discharged from the hospital because they were not equipped to handle me does not help me with that issue!!
Thank you though for your practical support and rationality.
