** The Comprehensive ED Board Sticky **

The ED board


Welcome to the Eating Disorder board! Whatever brings you here, you're more than welcome to settle in, get yourself a cup of tea, and begin posting.
Outlined here are the basics to RYL - the stuff you need to know, the people you need to know, and some threads which may give you a little more information about eating disorders, of all sorts.

Please do have a look though; they're a simple guide to the board, and the forum.
Thank you.

Recently, the Community Team noticed that there has been an increase in threads asking forum members for a diagnosis. This is just a reminder to say that as members of RYL we can never provide a diagnosis because we/are not medical professionals. Although any member can give their perspective from their own experience or knowledge, this is only one perspective, as everyone is different and experiences symptoms differently. Also many illnesses have very similar symptoms.

If you do feel the need to ask members about symptoms and diagnosis, perhaps you could consider talking to your doctor first because you will not get a diagnosis from RYL. RYL is a really fantastic source of support, however, and Iím sure that you can find something that can help you, so why not make a thread about something less formal than a potential diagnosis? This would help us to better support you.

We know that it can be a very distressing position to be in, when destructive thoughts/feelings/behaviours are taking over your life. At those times it can feel as though the only way that somebody will listen is through your gaining a diagnosis. However, you can be sure that RYL-ers will be there for you whatever the problem. We want to support you with it, if you let us, and we care about your feelings.

So if you want to make a thread asking for a diagnosis, have a think about why you want the label in the first place and what we could do to help you.
