Has anyone been to a mental ward before..



I've heard that hospitals use thiamine supplements to reduce bloating in anorexia recovery. I bet you can find it in the vitamin section at your local pharmacy.

And your bones are not huge, I highly doubt it.

Imagine yourself in fifty years. Would you like to break all your bones very very easily? When you go to pick up your children or grandchildren you break half of your spine. Your forced to sit around all day because your bones are so weakened because you have tiny bones and starved yourself as a teenager. Be very thankful for large bones, your risk for osteoporosis is much smaller. Congratulations on a bmi of 20, you will learn to appreciate it and it is truly a lovely bmi. As for going to a mental ward I'm really not sure but you're really going to work hard and continue eating well to ever recover and live the rest of your life!

I just want to put my 2 cents in. YOU don't want to look sick, your eating disorder wants to look sick. There's a big difference. You may be struggling now, but keep pushing yourself both mentally and physically and keep eating enough. I know it's easier said than done, but in the long run you'll be thankful you did. I think your body is slender and absolutely beautiful now. Even if you gained 200lbs you'd be gorgeous.

Keep fighting <3

surprisingly..I woke up feeling really awesome today! I noticed when I was eating 0-to whatever I was really skinny fat and had cellulite all over my legs, Now when I looked in the mirror my legs look lean but strong and no cellulite! 

I'm still worried I won't be able to get through today and end up restricting ):
