Ashley-Kate,

I confess I really don't know very much about anorexia and eating disorders, so after reading your post, I found this information resource, published by the National Institutes of Mental Health.

According to what I read, anorexia does not appear to be motivated by a wish to die.

Have you ever sought treatment for your disorder?
 
i have been hospitalised 6 times in the past 4 years for this disorder and i spoke to my dr about the possibility of just losing hoppe and wanting to end the suffering and maybe using the e-d to do so .. he told me that the discouragment after many years of living with the disorder grows with the time spent in it and that it is just the loss of hope to get well that makes me feel so depressed and also the fact that i am not eating correctly but i feel that suicide has always fallowed me through this disorder as if i knew no matter what if i didn't feel better one day well at least the alternative was ending the pain one way or another.
a-k

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2774853 January 12, 2021 The highest rates of suicide attempt were found for people with ASD who were unemployed; however, the difference with the group without ASD was highest for those who were employed, with employment having a lesser protective association for those with ASD. Some authors have suggested a mitigating association of employment for those with ASD. We can only speculate whether this finding might be partly...

Empowering Clients to Thrive Despite Their Desire for Death - A Workshop on ACT for Suicide Prevention :acrobat: We are taught that we should get rid of things that are bad and unwanted. We are good at this when it has to do with external things (spoiled milk, used tissues, etc.). Then we are told that we should be able to similarly get rid of emotions and thoughts that are viewed as “bad” or unwanted. This isn’t as easy and when the emotions are very intense it can be downright...
