Afraid of food

I'm afraid to eat food. To me, food equals calories and fat. I already think I am fat. I am blind, so don't really know, but I feel fat. I just wish I could stop this cycle.

Hi angellic23!

Hi angellic23,

I’m sorry that things are so hard right now; I can hear the distress in your post. Have you talked to a doctor or maybe a therapist about your fear of food?

I know that it is a big step to see a professional but having people to talk to and building a support network is so helpful. ED can be really isolating but you are not alone and there is help available.

NEDA has a Helpline (Monday-Thursday from 9:00 am - 9:00 pm and Friday from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm est) that can help you get started finding resources in your area.

We are all here to support one another, please continue to post and keep us updated.
