    Trigger warning, I suppose. So, I’ve finished high school and now I’m off to college. The last two years, I’ve spent high school at a medical school, not a regular high school. There, I managed to gain control over my eating disorder. I’ve been gone for 3 weeks and I’m already slipping back into old habbits. I’m struggling to get out of bed and socialise with friends. I’m just really missing skipping meals and self-harming. It sounds crazy, but I miss feeling hungry and self-harming. I don’t want to worry my mum right now because she just got a new boyfriend for the first time since she divorced my dad, almost 8 years ago. I just don’t know what to do.

    I can relate so much to missing skipping meals and self harming - it's mad how anorexia takes over who you are and tries to become a part of your identity! We must not let this happen though - you are much stronger than this and I know you can do it! When you get thoughts about wanting to skip meals again and trying to get you to slip back into bad habits, try to counter the thought - think of all those things you like doing and how not eating will stop you from doing those and how it is the evil bad monster of anorexia trying to creep up on you again but this time you are ready to beat it back down again. When you feel hungry it means you need food so the fact that you don't' feel hungry I guess means you are getting more food and your body needs it so is being grateful for it. When I have urges to self harm again (I cut) I look at my old scars and try to think that I don't want to be covered in scars when I'm older or do any more damage which I will regret later on in life.

    Hope this sort of helps! :)
