Eating disorder relapse help?


I was extremely Anorexic for 3 years, I have been recovering pretty well for about 2 but every now and then I relapse for a little. Usually I can get myself back before anything happens but It recently happened and I can't get back to normality. I was told somethings wrong when you start to feel chest pain and I do over the smallest of things. I don't want to go into treatment if I can get back on my own. I want to eat, in fact, I crave certain foods but I will take a few bites and get really sick. I mean two bites of a pretzel rod and I wanna throw up. Even fluids make me sick. Just water makes me bloat and want to puke.
I'm not sure what to do, or what to eat that will make this easier...
I might be trying to eat the wrong foods but I'm not sure what will help.

I think you may jsut have to push thru it until it gets better.  i'd suggest ensure or boost so that you are getting the nutrition that you need.  I mean, a pretzel rod doesn't have anythig of value in it for your body and if your heart is hurting then you definitely need nutritious things.  If the nausea continues I'd suggest seeing a medica doctor to make sure you haven't got an ulcer or somehtihg physical.  A check up might be good anyways, and an ekg for sure.  And maybe you can find an outpatient support group or somethig like that.

Good luck.  Please work on this bc, as you probably know, the longer you stay in relapse mode the harder it will be to get back into recovery.
