"I have suffered from anorexia nervosa for the last 12 years. It has totally destroyed my life and continues to plague me every day. I have been told that I will not live past my 30th birthday... but refuse to believe this!
Right now I have managed to gain 20 pounds (by my own willpower and feel so proud of myself.)
Despite the fact that I feel fat and horrible, I continue to struggle on... just to have a 'normal life' again.
I hate my body right now, but am desperate to get a 'proper job' (I have studied so much for this). I have spent so many months educating myself and refuse to give up.
Anorexia has controlled me for so many years. I have spent the last 10 years in 'treatment'. Only now do I wish to go further.
I love my partner so much and hope that I can continue to progress, with his support. Your website has helped me to feel so much better. I hope that I will be fertile (one day), so that I can try to have children.
