Eating Disorder Hotline?

Question by forsatellitesx: eating disorder hotline?
i’m trying to recover from my anorexia, and i’m feeling really depressed right now because i just ate peanut butter and a bowl of cereal 10 minutes ago and my parents are still demanding that i eat dinner in half an hour… i don’t know what to do and i feel really anxious and helpless

is there a hotline for help or someone that i could talk to…
i’m not underweight…i already gained that when i went to treatment 2 summers ago so i guess dinner isn’t a life-threatening issue right now

I don’t think there’s a hotline specifically for EDs, but you can call 1-800-273-TALK and you can talk with someone about various issues-including you depession, anxiety, and how it relates to your ED.
Have you tried explaining what you ate to your parents? Maybe just eat a bit of dinner, don’t tell them you want nothing, tell them “I just ate and I’m not really hungry, is it okay if I eat this?” Something like that. I’m sure your parents would understand, I hope they would as they are aware of your ED.

If you want, you can email me. Or you can IM me: thenotebooksuicidal
