15 and Self-Centered

From the : Well, let me start off. I am a teen who loves my family, however I get very annoyed and angry in my mind at unintelligent, annoying, attention craving people. Whether I have problems with them or not, they annoy me. In the beginning of freshman year, I had extreme anxiety, but now it has gotten better. I obsess over how my face looks and my body a lot, although my mom...

Possible Recurrence of Eating Disorder

I used to be bulimic. I have been better for 12 years but had bulimia for about 9 years. I do not really think I would ever make myself sick again but lately I have been experiencing some of the same feelings and obsessions as before. I weigh myself several times a day and this determines my mood. I weigh all my food to calculate how much I can have as I am actively...

I have no motivation and my parents keep asking me why I’m not doing track this...

Life Going Down Hill

My life has been going down hill recently. I have never been an abusive person, but suddenly I punched two kids in my class (they were teasing me but that is no excuse). Academically I’m not doing so great anymore. I used to get straight A’s, now I get D’s and C’s. One of my best friends completely turned on me and is now siding with the bullies. I feel as if my friends...

I Myself Don’t Even Know

I really just wanted some perspective. This all started about 3 months ago majorly I guess. But the most recent event was last week. I woke up last Wednesday and just didn’t want to go to school, talk to anyone, see anyone, I just hated everyone and everything around me. I haven’t gone to school for 10 days nor have I talked to any of my friends. I had eating problems before but now...

Can I Have Bulimia If I’m Overweight?

I binge and purge almost every day but I’m not sure if I’m bulimic. My binges are not always followed by purging and my purging in not always preceded by binging. Sometimes I like the full feeling. Sometimes I’m just searching for the feeling of relief I get when I vomit. I don’t think I’m preoccupied with my weight. Also, I’m genuinely overweight so afraid to discuss this with my psychiatrist in case he...

My weight changes dramatically I either lose/gain a pound a day one week I’ll gain...

Confusion and Sadness

Last winter, I was extremely upset and sad for no apparent reason. I had plenty of friends but I just often felt alone and that no one cared about me. My self-esteem is pretty low, and I absolutely hate my body. I feel disgusting after I eat, and even though I try to eat pretty healthy, I still binge eat almost every night. I self-harmed a bit, mostly because I wanted to see if...
