im currently in recovery for anorexia nervosa but i currently in the middle of a relapse , due to past experiences i don't have counseling but i do have a care manager .
They always ask me what they can do to help but i have no idea what they can do to help ? I just don't know what to do

    What do you think would help you most?

    Or, are there any things they could stop doing? If so, you could turn it around in to a positive thing that stopping doing would be instead?

    Hi Ruthch! Welcome to TheMix. I've moved this thread to the Health and Wellbeing area as I think more users will see it there and hopefully give you some support.

    In the meantime, we have an article on Anorexia here which has a small section on getting help, plus there is a true user story about How I overcame anorexia which I hope might give you some confidence to overcome this.

    Do keep talking to us as much as you need.

    @plugitin ive thought about it and i think if they could help me change the way i think about htings e.g. food , calories and body image that would help me . i just hate meetings as it which makes it hard for me to speak up

    What kind of meetings are they? Perhaps you could meet before to talk about what the meeting is about and maybe ask whoever is going with you if they can make points on your behalf if you don't feel able to yourself?

    Have you been getting any therapy at all?

    Hey Ruthch,

    Firstly I want to say that you've been incredibly brave with posting here. I'm sorry to hear you're struggling at the moment though.

    You mention that you have been in recovery, but have relapsed. What kinds of things were you doing before, or support were you getting to help you recover?

    I wonder if you've had a chance to take a look at the links that Cat posted :chin: How would you feel about reaching out to somewhere like B-eat? You may find something here which could help, especially if you're quite nervous about talking in person.

    Keep posting if it helps *hug*
