I am so sorry you are having such a rough time, and it sounds like a truly bad day : (

YES, you have to gain weight slowly, or else you will get severly bloated like you said you are. When anorexics go into the hosptial, they ususally only start them out at about 1,000 calories a day because their bodies can't handle anymore, and they get that "refugee" look where they are really skinny but their stomaches stick out.

You parents don't sound very understanding...?? They are pressuring you gain all the weight back quickly?? I am sickened to hear that you father said he was ashamed to have you as your daughter!! What a horrendous thing to say!! He doesn't understand, and I don't know if you will be able to make him.

I used to work until 10 or 11 pm sometimes and I too would come home and binge and purge like crazy, even though I was dead tired.

You can't gain it all back at once. Are you only gaining the weight to please your parents or because you really want to be a healthier weight? if you are only doing it for them, it will just come back off again...

HUGS!!! We do understand.

Thank you! I have been trying to tell people that its really hard for my body to digest large amounts of foods but people think im just giving excuses. I am eating about 2000 cals a day now and my stomache is huge because it has no clue what to do with all the food. I hate that feeling its disgusting.
