  1. Starting at a higher BMI
    I started Wellbutrin a few months ago, and my doctor is making me weigh in every month when I check in. I can tell that last time I raised some eyebrows with dropping 20lbs in a month and I’m trying to figure out the best solution to not raise any red flags that will get me switched to a...

    i have a doctors appointment on the 29th, and if i keep going at the rate i am i'll probably drop to an underweight bmi that they'd ask about, not just say to eat more. they usually ask a lot of questions about mental health anyway so i expect that if i'm underweight they'll ask ED questions...

    I was at the psychiatrist earlier today to hopefully get approved for CBT treatment for OCD and depression. I've been meeting with a psychologist for several months now who wants to treat me, but is very hesitant because he knows I'm anorexic (the diagnosis is in my medical journal). Apparently...
  4. Bulimia Discussions
    Fuck I'm nervous. I have no idea how to phrase it. I told a (male) GP years ago but he just seemed really indifferent to the whole thing and didn't even look over from his computer. He stuck me on fluoxetine and basically had me out the door in about 3 mins. So I've never mentioned it again. Nor...
  5. Anorexia Discussions
    Can I get advice from people who have been inpatient for their ED? Was it as horrible as it sounds? I had my psychiatrist appointment today and was told if I lost more weight, I would be going inpatient. I didn’t even think that was a thing she was allowed to decide for me. I feel like I am...

    Am I the only one who freaks out about being weighed at the doctor?? In movies and tv shows, I always saw people with ED’s intentionally try to weigh more at their doctors appointments (I would assume to avoid hospitalization) but I CANNOT do that. I get so nervous about being weighed with my...

    I need a medical excuse for weight loss. I have to see a doctor soon and I need something to tell them.

    Why I want to try antidepressants I've called my doctor yesterday and got an appointment to discuss my options for antidepressants. For as long as I remember I have struggled with wanting my existence to end. Saying for my life to end bears too much meaning - the friendships to end, the...

    I'll start. So when I first started purging I felt an extreme decline in my health and I actually decided it might be a good idea to get my vitals checked. When I called my GP, the assistant was like: "uhm so this is a very delicate sensitive topic so uhm, let me call you back in the evening and...

    Ok I have two questions. 1. So I got out of inpatient a week ago but I'm having meetings with an outpatient team weekly and they are monitoring my weight. I was wondering if there was anything that I could do to make myself look like I weigh more. I know water loading and I've done that. Also I...
