Thanks for your mail

We are sorry to hear that this is going on for you . It sounds like things have not been easy for your recently.

Well done on your road to recovery for Anorexia! By the sounds of it you say you have now reached a healthy weight but it sounds like it is not the feelings you were hoping to have upon reaching this?

All roads to recovery are hard and face many challenges along the way.

We would be interested in understanding what support you are getting currently? Recovery does take time and you have the right to get support both physically and mentally.

Talking about your thoughts, feelings and expectations can help.
