Hi Piscean

I haven't seen you around on this board before, so first of all I'll say welcome! I hope you find the support you're looking for here.

I can only partly relate to your situation; I have had anorexia since I was 11 and I am now 20, so we're about the same age. I am also a perfectionist, and along with expecting everything in my life to be perfect (which of course it never will be) I expect myself to be perfect. This is dangerous when you also have an eating disorder, because the two ideas really don't go well together as you're probably finding out. I can't diagnose, but from what you've said it sounds as though you may well have anorexia. The thing is you recognise what you're doing and (hopefully) that what you're doing is dangerous. I would strongly recommend going to see a counsellor about what you're going through because it isn't something you can deal with by yourself, especially when you had a young daughter and you're studying as well. Getting out of what you're getting into as soon as you can is the best advice I can give you. Eating disorders are not glamourous, they wreck your life. Please seek help before it goes any further.

Do let us know how you're getting on, and do think about getting some help with this.

Take care,
J*L xxx
