    Hi my name is Sophie and I’m 15. I got diagnosed with anorexia nervosa 2 weeks ago and have just got back from hospital after being an impatient. At hospital I tried my best to eat because they were going to give me a feeding tube otherwise but now I’m at home I’m really struggling. I’m lonely and bored because I’m on bed rest. At hospital I was even more lonely and bored because my parents weren’t allowed to visit because of covid risks. I’m still coming to terms with my diagnosis and am still in denial that I have an eating disorder despite my very dangerous weight and the damage my body has taken. I really want to get back to school but I have to gain a load of weight for it to be healthy and I’m terrified. Any advice anyone? Sorry I know I’m a mess :/ hope you’re all ok

    Hi Sophie! i get how tough it probably is at the moment 💜💜 could you maybe speak to your parents aboit how you're feeling? i know that in loads of cases this might not work out, but its just an idea- also you could try and set little targets for yourself- even if the steps are tiny, you're still making progress! wishing you the best of luck, keep us updated if you want! 💕
