Uh oh- I've just (as of 5 min ago) started visiting these sites. I thought I was so stable, like I'm not starting another ed or anything but I like reading about mental illnesses and the psych ward and things like that. Does that mean I'm not as stable as I think I am?

I have no idea if visiting these sites means someone is stable or unstable but I personally recommend (from experience) to stay away!!! there are other places you can read about the psych ward.

It's an obsession I have. I don't know why I NEED to read up on these things but I just do.
So strange!!

Do you eally like reading about mental illness and psychiatric hospitals? Bc there are books out there like Girl, Interrupted and The Bell Jar which I think are considered classics and give a vivid picture of the psy. hosp.

I also enjoy it. There are so many things that I can't relate to, that this really pulls me bc I relate all too well. Girl Interrupted was put out as a movie recently and I really connected to it...

Ha ha ha I'm not laughing at you at all I'm just laughing at the irony of me giving advice and support when only last night at 1;30 am I paged my psychiatrist to tell her that I want to kill myself...
So I DEFINITELY know how you feel. It's not worth the pain, I don't deserve to live, I can't let go of this control, whatever it is, I am trying to remind myself that THIS WILL PASS! and maybe I will struggle for a really long time but not every moment and every day will I feel as hopeless, dispairing and lost as I do now.
Just remember PLEASE that there are people out there who care about you - including us- who would be devastated if you would decide to take an irreversible step.
Pls keep in touch, depressed.

Depressed - I don't know what to tell you in response to your original post about visiting pro-ana websites. I know from personal experience that it's a really horrible addiction and that it can just keep things going in a really bad way. I just wanted to tell you that I admire you for KNOWING that it's not a good thing and for reaching out for support. That is definitely a good first step.

Do you have a therapist? If so, can you talk to him/her about it?


-------------------------
I want to love my life. My desire is what counts.

Got myself into a rut. Didn't realize how even though I am stable now I can still come so close to being not stable. I'm not sure I'm making sense but basically what I'm trying to say is that I'm being stupid now by visiting these sites. They should be off limits to me since I'm still so new to this stability thing. Why am I pushing myself towards the edge? I like being happy and doing well, why put myself in a situation that make me not be amazing anymore?

I know I'm bugging everyone but for some reason I feel like I need some typa support right now. The only person that I can text/email isn't answering me. I don't have a therapist anymore and want to leave it that way. I'm hoping I can just sleep this off.

BTW I spent almost my entire day on these pro ana sites and barely studied. I can't do this anymore. Going to therapist tomorrow but don't want to tell her about it because she's going to tell my mother to put a filter on computer for these sites. I told her I was weighing and measuring with a belt and she made me give them to my mother and hide it from me and now I don't know what to do with myself. HELP! I'm so fat-I'm embarrassed to leave my house!

Tell her anyway! It's for your own good!! You'll eventually start feeling much better after not visiting these sites for a number of days.
It's not worth it.
I know I sound like a hypocrite but I don't plan on visiting those sites either.
Good luck!!

Good for you for deciding!
I'm planning on holdng you to that!! and maybe not wanting to be a hypocrite will help me stay away from pro-ana sites, too.

OK, everyone here's the thing you all need to do: if you're seeing a therapist or nutritionist tell them that you've been visiting these sites. As professionals, I hope they'll be able to give you some advice on what to do.

I wasted so much of my time on these sites.

I'm telling you I don't have an ED anymore. I lost control I'm eating like a pig! Fat people don't have EDs
Once upon a time life was wonderful when I was eating 500 calories a day! Now...too many to count I'm so mad at myself. I want to trigger myself again.
