I'm scared

My head is killing. I'm having a major head ache all the time. My hair falling out is concerning me. I do have anorexia nervousa and I told one of my friends at school that I used to have it (before I relapsed now) and she can tell that I'be relapsed but all she is doing is making fun of me or making me feel worse about myself. I hate my body. I want to be skinny. I want help. People tell me I look green or weird with my clothes that are too big but when my clothes are too big I know no one can see my fat and I know I'm losing weight. I don't feel good though. I feel weak and tired. My mom doesn't know about my eating disorder and if she does, then she just doesn't want to say anything about it. I feel like no one understands me. School is hard for me and I get bad grades so if i can't be a perfect student then I feel like I should be a perfect person which is skinny and beautiful and funny and nice. I need to be skinny. I want to be skinny

Hiddengirl1234,

I'm really worried for you, and it sounds like you're worried for yourself. I think it's understandable to be worried about the headaches and your hair falling out. Your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong. I really think you need to ask for help from a doctor or another adult. Perhaps your mom has noticed some of the signs of your poor health, but she doesn't want to upset you by bringing it up. That doesn't mean she doesn't care. Maybe if you tell her that you're worried about your health (you could tell her about some of the things you're experiencing), then she'll take you to the doctor and you can get help that way. Another route might be for you to talk to a nurse or counselor at your school. I'm sorry that people are making fun of you; I imagine that must be making things worse and more upsetting for you. Please believe me when I say that I care about you and that I want you to seek help. I know other people who read Proud2Bme feel the same way. We all want the best for each other, and you deserve to be happy and healthy. You need to reach out to someone for help to start heading in the right direction. Nobody can be perfect, and if your pursuit of perfection is making you so miserable and sick, then perhaps that's a sign that it's not worth it. Please reach out to an adult or a professional for help.
