“I weigh [x] pounds and I am [x] feet [x] inches tall. Is this healthy?”
To be completely honest, we don’t know. It all depends on your eating and exercise habits, medical history, etc.
“My friend/sibling/relative has an eating disorder, how do I help?”
Show them you care by asking them how they’re doing, by expressing your concern. They need to know that you are there to support them and that you love them. They want to hear that they’re beautiful, and you know they are, so tell them every chance you get.
“I feel.. [symptoms]. Do I have an eating disorder? Which eating disorder do I have? What do I do?”
We aren’t doctors, so PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO DIAGNOSE YOU! We’ll just tell you to go to your doctor or therapist. We know, it’s a scary thought, but that’s the only way you’ll get an accurate diagnosis, and the only way you can get into a recovery program if you do have an eating disorder. If the thought of telling your doctor or therapist is too scary, tell your friends or your parents. They’ll encourage you to get the help you need and they’ll support you in recovery. We really wish we could help you out more than this, but that’s really all we can tell you to do.
