Sasha….Being Scared Is

Sasha….being scared is normal, and friends and family being concerned and suggesting that you seek help is normal. That doesn’t mean it’s easy or that it feels good, but the pattern you are stuck in now doesn’t feel so good either, I suspect.
Eating disorders are fatal illnesses, if you don’t get help. Please seek help from a counselor and/or your doctor, and look into treatment options before this robs you of even more in your life…or your life.
Recovery is totally posssible, and YOU deserve to be free! Take care…J
