My eating problems

This is my own personal experience of eating problems and how it has affected me as a person and also how it affects other people like family and friends. And why you might have an eating disorder in the first place.


Well in my experience I found it very hard to eat at any times in the day and trying to make me eat would just make me sick, I didn’t want to admit to myself that I had something wrong with me as I thought it was nothing and that it would be all ok in time. But as you can imagine my family started to get very worried about me and I got forced to go to the doctors to see if I had anything wrong with me.


And obviously there was something wrong with me and I had a very very low bmi and got put onto a food plan straight away and got told that if I didn’t put on 3 stone then I would have to go into hospital and basically have tubes put down my throat which would make me eat and then that would get me to put enough weight on to get healthy again.


This obviously really scared me and my family; it was hard to explain to my family why I had got these problems and they got very frustrated with me as I wouldn’t explain. But I think the best thing to do is to tell your family why you have the problems so they can help you and just talk about all of your problems. And so when you’re starting to eat your family can encourage you and help out when you need it most. And someone constantly telling you that you do look good and thin can help you and boost that person’s confidence up.


For me all of this started when I was getting bullied at school and I was just overwhelmed of life at this point it affected my self of steam and at this point it was very low and I felt that I was very over weight even though in reality I wasn’t. So I stopped eating at all and so that I would become the perfect weight when really I wasn’t sure what that was and I just became very thin and ill.
And from my low confidence and all of the eating troubles it made me even unhappier so I started to self harm as I thought that this might help me realise the stress and pain from what I was going through and when I first did it I realised that it didn’t help at all and made me worse and I just ended up crying all the time and just being so upset. This is a very important point don’t self harm it doesn’t help at all and will just make things worse for you. Even though this doesn’t have a direct link to an eating disorder it does have a link as normally when you have an eating disorder you have a very low self a steam so this could happen.


Going through all of this is a very hard experienced but anyone can get over it in the end. This would be hard for anyone to go through and can put a lot of strain on the persons and friends and family. But you just have to give them as much support as you can and encourage them to get better. And over time things will be ok with the help from doctors and psychologists. I am going through the process now of getting help and it is working and im putting weight on slowly but surely, and I know if just more people got help they would be the same.


I hope you have enjoyed reading this, and could help some people.
