Twigster,, Thanks for reaching out! As you are aware, depression and anorexia can go hand in hand. Anorexia can be a way to try to turn off the emotions so the depression does not feel as overwhelming. Yet both need to be addressed for you to feel better and be freed of the hold they have on you. There is no shame for either. Both are genetic. They will not just go away. We have a lot of knowledge today as professionals to help you in letting go of both. Seeking professional help from eating disorder specialists is important. You are not alone. Many have gone before you. I too had depression and anorexia when I was younger. You still want to keep it because the eating disorder voice is still louder than your healthy voice. Be persistent! Stay at it. There is hope, change and recovery!
