I Have a Secretive Eating Disorder and No One Knows, Help???

Question by Elizabeth Wang: I have a secretive eating disorder and no one knows, help???
name: Elizabeth
age: 16 (turning 17 in September)

The last thing I ate since last week was one quarter of a carrot, 2 full glass of water.
NO ONE knows I have an eating disorder and I’m afraid to tell my parents because (If I know them) they will lecture me and yell at me and possibly hit me. 🙁
I wouldn’t tell my friends because they’d probably write on Yahoo! Answers: MY FRIEND HAS A EATING DISORDER, HELP?!?!?!” or something to expose that I have an eating disorder.
I wouldn’t tell a therapist or anyone because:
a. they’d notify my parents
b. I don’t think i have a local therapist
c. they cost a lot of money and I only have $ 4 in my purse.

Also, I’m afraid to go to the kitchen because the hunger temptation is kicking in and if I grab a Luna bar from the cabinet, I have this sick feeling in my stomach and I rush to the bathroom.

I’ve been going throw this since the last day of school.

Can you just talk to your mom alone about it and let her know you are scared. how long has this been going on? hun you having to be feeling pretty bad side effect if that is all you drinken and eaten since last week. you are porbly dehyraded and dizzy. you need to get help hun. go to ur friends parents or somthing. if you go to a therpasit or something, they cant call your parents. ( at lest where i live over the age of 15 u can make ur own rights.) please hun get help. you are wroth it and you should be going though this alone. please try talking to someone. we can give adive but we cant phyical be there with you as like your family and friends. is there someone else in the family you trust that can try to help you?

Eating Disorder Help CACAO-CHIA-BA-NUT Smoothie – www.eatingdisorderfreedomcoach.com Ok I am starting a brand new series to give you some powerful “Eating Disorder Help” *Shan’s Smoothie Series*. This is the first of MANY videos where I share some of my favourite smoothies with you. The reason I really started experimenting with smoothies is because as I dove head-first into the empowering world of “Holistic Nutrition” I realized that it had the answer to the many problems I was having with trying to reintroduce healthy food and ENOUGH food back into my life. My disordered eating pattern had always consisted of mostly sugar laden, unhealthy ‘binge foods’ and not really much of any food I ever ate was allowed to actually ‘make it all the way through my body’ without being subjected to either purging it out, or using laxatives and enemas to get it out the other end. A common side effect we all experience in “eating disorder rehab” is the cramping, bloat and gas associated with the reintroduction of real food in proper amounts… and smoothies really help to diminish a lot of these side effects, Especially when they contain the powerful ingredients I am going to introduce you to over the course of this series. I love smoothies for MANY reasons 1- Smoothies are easy on your digestion, reduce cramping and bloating, facilitate elimination and allow for maximum absorption of the nutrients into your body. 2- Smoothies allow you to pack in lots of living, raw, enzyme rich, powerful superfoods so you can get them all at once. 3
