You sound like you're at a place where you will respond to good therapy.
What kind of therapy have you had in the past regarding your eating disorder? I was referred to Cognitive Analytical Therapy which was part of the ED clinic. I know there are waiting lists for this kind of therapy. I'm sorry your Consultant was unhelpful.
Thank you for your advice.
I have had Psychotherapy in the past for 2 years until my therapist retired. That was about 8 years ago though now.
I have spoken to my current therapist about being referred to the ED team (although I am still so very scared about this) but she is going to find out if that is something she can help with or if I have to go through the GP...
One day my head is telling me I don't need help for eating issues and that I am totally fine on my own and Ill just get fat 'blah, blah, blah' then other days I can really see the reality of it all and how isolated it makes me and I feel like I am struggling :(
