*WEIGHT RESTORED * Crushing Ana *
I will be posting my intakes, ups, and downs. <3 Glad to share my journey with anyone who follows :) I am here for any questions, and i will be open and honest to anything so don't be afraid!
I do believe it is possible. I do.
Are you weight restored? Do you still see doctors and therapists?
I personally believe it is possible to be 98% recovered. You might always think about the upcoming meals but it should get better. I would hope it does. For me I never think about lunch which is nice.
Would you mind explaining ur situation a bit more to me?
Yes I did
Try to eat every 4hrs as a minimum. I never EVER go more than 4hrs without eating.
It can take some time to learn your body again and it is different for everyone. Just be patient.
No. Chest pains are NEVER normal and should ALWAYS be brought to a doctors attention.
bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad bad things.
Not to scare you.
But bad things.
I would say you MUST go get an EKG or some type of heart scan. A lot of people who go through anorexia can get FLUID in their heart or LUNGS! This would mean DEATH in your SLEEP. It’s VERY dangerous.
It could also mean you have LOW blood pressure and LOW heart rate - this means YOU WILL DIE IN YOUR SLEEP.
PLEASE PLEASE GO SEE A DOCTOR
Oh wow thank you
Okay so: Depression can be Pre-existing before an ED. However when an ED starts your depression will be MAGNIFIED! I mean that. People who don’t have depression Pre-ed WILL have ED induced depression during recovery. It is inevitable. Explain to him that depression is a neurological illness. It has nothing to do with your life in general. People don’t need to have crappy things happen to them in order to be depressed. Look at Robin Williams for example (God bless his soul).
Do some research on depression and show him the facts. Parents normally respond the best to facts from online sources than from what their children say. Also if you see a therapist consider asking them of you can do a family session.
Good luck love.
And remember: you ARE worth it
Noo that’s fine. If you increase from 600 to 3000 overnight would shock ur system a bit much.
You are fine!
Hey darling I just answered a question on this. If a doctor says that you are not underweight then focus on getting therapy for your ED and nutrition counseling.
If you are underweight by even a little you need to gain so you are say 4-6.6 lbs above the minimum standard.
Okay so I personally believe that people should ALWAYS be 2-3kg or 4.4-6.6lbs above the minimum healthy weight. It’s safe for people with ED’s because if they loose even a tad bit of weight ur can spiral their mind which is why you wouldn’t want to instantly become underweight again. So do gain the weight by eating 2600 cals.
People should be able to maintain on 2200 calories MINIMUM.
