I am in my 40s, lived through anorexia in my teens and again in my 20s, have been fighting again for 5 years and have never felt more alone.
Due to living outside a regional area help is nesr non existent unless you can afford to pay for private counseling and add on large expenses of fuel for 3 hour round trips.
So much talk of more accessible help but despite numerous calls to all help centers there is nothing to help me.
Just adds to the feelings of worthlessness and that I'm not worth helping.
I'm sure I cant be alone in this but with no support groups within 200km I cannot make any contacts and this is consuming me.

I've just moved this thread from 'Social Spaces' to 'Our Stories' section of the forum as it is a bit more suited and will help more members to easily find your thread and get some replies and support to you. 💙

Hi again @Breeze
Stopping by to see how you are going. Are you making your way with the forums ? Is there anything you would like help to navigate with, or perhaps to chat some more about how you are feeling ?
Please feel free to ask questions if you have them.

Hey @Breeze I completed a swab for scientists doing a worldwide studying into anorexia. I hope we get some results soon. I have been in your shoes.
