Hi @EGB13


Just a heads up that I've just moved your post over here, where it's a bit better suited.

Hope it helps you to connect you with a bit more support.


I can see that you're new to the forums too - welcome  🌻


Living with an eating disorder can be pretty isolating and you've done so well to make the decision to reach out for some support. There are lots of ways you can get help. Here are a few:

- Go to your local GP and talk to them about your experience. They can refer you to a specialist service or a clinician in your local area for support. 

- Contact the Butterfly Foundation: they have a helpline and online chat service that can asist you to understand your experience and to connect with support in your local area

- Use the service finder on the NEDC website to locate a service close to you.


It's also a good idea to talk to a family member or friend to let them in on how things are feeling for you too. I know this can feel totally scary however you don't need to do this alone and things can and will get better with support 🐼
