User Submitted Advice from a 21-30 year old Female
It's about control

Hi I was anorexic and a self harmer. My present boyfriend helped me stop, I still fear food, weigh myself 2 times a day, and want to cut, cry a lot, but I maintain a normal weight. Take her to the doctor, help her, she'll push you away and hurt you sometimes as shes scared that you dont want her, anoreixa are mistrustful and testy, she'll exhuast you emotionally, phone you at weird hours over nothing, yell at you for no reason, lie, anorexia isnt about food, its about control, about been hurt, I was sexually abused, about trusting no one, how much do you love her? How much time and engergy do you have?
