Re: Anorexia

She's had a tough week, her "R" Ex wanted to get back together and she said she'd try and not be so possesive.

My siter an Brother in-law weren't happy, but it was her decision.

But 3 days later "R" said she'd changed her mind, my niece thinks it might have been deliberate. So now my niece has blocked her number and removed her from all her social media.

My niece is also thinking of quitting her part time job as she's not happy.

---------------------------------------

She posted the following recently on Instagram and I'd though I share it, as its powerful reading, and I'm very proud to be her uncle.

Quote:
So it’s coming towards the end of #nedaweek and just before it ends i want to spread my own awareness of eating disorders, an issue close to my heart.

Disclaimer: this is not a sob story where i aim to make people feel sorry for me. i’m not going to post a comparison between my underweight body and my now healthy body because i don’t believe this would be helpful. i just want to help anyone else who may be struggling and raise awareness.

It’s so sad how little is understood of eating disorders and the amount of stereotypes they hold. you don’t have to be underweight to have an eating disorder as anorexia does not have a “look” and that misconception is the reason as to why so many people have heir feelings invalidated and feel they are not “sick enough”. anorexia is a competitive mental illness and one of the deadliest, killing 1 in 5 sufferers. i will not be that 1 in 5. the truth is anorexia is not just simply not eating or being insanely thin. it’s missing out on so many social activities because you’re worried about the food you may have to face, it’s spending your free time calculating calories instead of living your life, it’s hating every single part of yourself in an attempt to be anyone but who you are and it’s completely losing all sense of reality as you fall deeper into a world that is so dark and scary. it is a manipulative illness and will make you believe that it knows what’s best for you, promising you a life where you are happy. but this is not true. anorexia will never bring you happiness, it is not your friend and food is not the enemy.

One of the most heartbreaking things is how common eating disorders are nowadays. we live in a world so focussed on diet culture and so full of pressures to look a certain way - we are literally taught to hate ourselves as we are. eating disorders can also arise from feelings of lack of control, but i promise that there are other ways to communicate how you feel and admit that you are not okay. eating disorders are not a choice, but recovery is and you must choose LIFE.

Please reach out to anyone you know who may be struggling. at first they will push you away and resent you for interfering as you are taking

Re: Anorexia

Looks like she's turned herself around nicely. All the support she received has been well worth it.

Re: Anorexia

Thanks.

The demons are still there, and she has good days and bad days.

But she's getting there.

Re: Anorexia

Anorexia is a very poorly understood phenomenon. I work as a fitness trainer and sometimes I get advice. The fact is that a person needs both psychological and physiological assistance. During rehabilitation, the problem is that you can not load the body. I advise people to light eastern diets After the first 2-3 weeks Such a diet will be able to move on to other diets that help restore the balance of substances in the body. The main thing is to know that this is not for life and this can be overcome!

Re: Anorexia

Well a few thing have changed.

She is waiting A-level results due on my mums birthday, then in September she does her second year for law, and sociology (3rd year).


She meet a young lady who is about 30 mins from our town, and as they were talking she "R" said my uncle has a business in your town, oh yeah where. R said the company my niece worked for, my niece said I worked there, R said stop messing about, my niece said a few people and they had a laugh.

Well yesterday R passed her driving test, so this will make meeting up a bit easier.

On Tuesday she had her first driving lesson which went well.

Today she had a response back from Asda and they want her to do a 2 hour thing at 1pm next Saturday, now next Saturday we are going on holiday, so I said to her book it and well go as soon as you finish, and a week later instead of going straight home well go to the coast and have one last look around and get chips of the market.


Also she has become a vegitatian, my sister said that she is in a beeter place and if it keeps her happy she ok with it, I did ask about what to watch out for but she said a few things and that her younger brother can step up and kick her backside, with our help of course.

She is still seeing a therapist.

---------- Post added at 20:36 ---------- Previous post was at 20:01 ----------

Asda will pay her if she get the job will pay 9.40 PH.

Re: Anorexia

Eveything is sounding positive for her which is a good thing. It's certainly looking like she has finally turned the corner and things are on the up and up.

Good news is always welcome, thanks for keeping us updated.

Re: Anorexia

Positive progress indeed Hom3r. You and the rest of your family must be very proud of your Niece and you all deserve a pat on the back for hanging in there.

Re: Anorexia

Nice to hear with the support of family your niece has turned a corner with a truly positive outlook.

It could not have been an easy journey for any of you, well done for all the support you gave her and well done to your niece in facing her battle and embracing the support of her family.
