hi my name's sophie, im 16 years old and have lost two stone in a month. i haven't eaten for 2 weeks now and feel really ill, but when i eat i feel even worse.
i have no 1 to talk to and find that no one understands.
over the past 4 months i've exercised excessively and lost another half stone.
i've found that i get really cold and shake unnaturally alot. i cant eat and when food is given to me its either hidden or thrown away.
i dont know what to do, i realise what will be happening inside but cant manage to push myself into eating
please, i need some advice
thanks, sophie x

  • You need to see a doctor, and fast.Not eating for 2 weeks is extremly dangerous.Take a friend or relative with you for support if you need it, but please see a doctor before you become seriously ill!
