Hey Thanks for contacting TEENLINE
It must have taken a lot of courage to contact us. It sounds like you are concerned about your health. You tell me you want to lose weight and exercising hasn’t helped, and you are struggling with your body weight. Have you talked to your doctor about this? Maybe your doctor can help set up a healthy diet plan. You tell me you have been starving yourself for a week and then eating the next week which sounds like you’re purging. You tell me you have had an eating disorder for several years now. Have you considered talking to a school counsellor or perhaps even a therapist? Eating disorders can be really scary and can put your body in serious danger.
If you ever feel like purging, or just need to talk to a fellow teen, feel free to contact us here at TEENLINE at (310)855-6243 from 6pm to 10pm PST. You can also contact NEDA at (800)931-2237 from8:30am to 4:30 pm PST. NEDA is an Eating Disorder helpline with specially trained listeners who are very attuned and sensitive.
I am really concerned about you and hopefully you consider calling the hotlines.
