Hi Queen436. :D Welcome! :wave:

I know you've heard this all a thousand times before but there's good reason for this. I don't know the exact numbers, but a high number of people with eating disorders DO die. :( We're not invincable... I know it can seem like that... I know everyone always says 'It won't happen to me"... but who's to say it won't? Many MANY people with eating disorders are also left with irraversable damage to their bodies - there's no going back on it!

You're only fifteen... don't put yourself through all this. There is so much that comes with an eating disorder. Ask ANYONE here that has a eating disorder if the also have depression. I think we'll all say yes. I know I'd have to, and I can tell you it's not pleesent!

I can't make up your mind for you. If you refuse to listed to us all here there's nothing we can do. I can only hope that you will make the right decission.

One last thing; no one here is mad at you for asking about this - you're right really, that at one stage we all thought like you are now. But we've been through it all - and if I could take back the last three years of living hell with my anorexia and bulimia, I would do it. I was never overweight - you're not either. I know what you mean though about 'feeling overweight'. But you know what? I bet that's all just a lack of confindence. We all here have or have had that at times. You don't think you're a worthy person when really you are. Maybe you could get some counselling, however. It would help you not to progress into your eating disorder, and they can teach you ways to gain confidence and self acceptance. Don't be ashamed; we've all been through it. :)

Please just be careful about how much you push to get ED 'tips' from here, okay? I can tell you now that no one will give you tips on how to GET an ED... and I know from personal experience that it can be quite disheartening constantly seeing a person ASKING how to make themselves sicker, when I am trying so hard to recover.

See ya, Queen. Please let us know how you're getting on. :)
