I really need help.

I think may be in the early stages of anorexia. I have many of the symptoms, eg coldness, fear of gaining weight, hair all over body, mysterious bruises, distorted body image, low self esteem etc.

I am too scared to tell mum or go to the counselor and my friends won't listen.

I need to know what action to take and who to talk to. My BMI is 17. I weigh 82-83 pounds (36-37kg). I am 4'11" (150cm) Do you think I am an anorexic? I am not sure what to do. I feel fat and useless. What do I do????? Please help me!!!


Go to your family doctor and ask for a check-up.

There may be other issues here, and your doctor would be the one to diagnose them. If you are physically healthy, ask about your concerns, and get a referral to a counselor or therapist.

Don’t be concerned about speaking to a professional. No mental health professional will pass judgment on you. We are there to help and believe me, we’ve heard everything ☺
