Today, I finally broke down and told my mom that I'd relapsed with my eating disorder. She told me to quit whining and eat a burger because she didn't want to pay for another therapy session. FML

That is absolutely disgusting and insensitive. I hope you get better OP, you don't need your mother, you can get better without her.

Ugh. Parents who don't take their kids' feelings seriously are just the worst. Dunno how old you are, but is there another adult you trust and can talk to? Someone else in your family, a counselor at school, priest/minister/rabbi? Good luck.

People need to realize that eating disorders go much deeper than food. If she could just eat a burger and resolve the problem, I'm sure she would have. No one would chose to be put through having a mental illness, which is what eating disorders actually are. They just manifest themselves in a physical manner that happens to be rejecting a factor necessary to survive. While this is exactly what can make it hard for others to understand, it should theoretically also make them realize how serious the situation is. Unfortunately, oftentimes they have a hard time accepting that anyone could REALLY feel the need to avoid/purge food, since it goes against our instincts completely.

Eating disorders are a bunch of rubbish. Obesity is wondering why you're fat when you have no portion control and don't exercize. Anorexia is simply not eating because you're too busy feeling sorry for yourself. You don't live in ethiopa, we have food here, no excuse. Bulemia is a pathetic cry for attention. Let the angry replies commence!

#76, It's not "rubbish", eating disordersit's a serious problem, usually from the result of societies view of beauty, or bullying. Yes, some people use it for "attention", but at times it's a problem which can cause DEATH. Also, it's psychological. You're a pathetic excuse for a human being.

38- I think you mean commend, not commented. 76- Some people really do have problems and I feel horrible for them. Other people use it to get attention and because they think it's cool- THAT is when it's bull and they need to be slapped. Hard.

"why dont she just eat" Are you mentally handicapped or something? It's a DISORDER which is as real as a broken bone. Do you even know what anorexia and bulimia are?? A person with an eating disorder doesn't just not eat because they can. Eating disorders usually have deeply emotional reasons behind them, like feeling ugly/fat, not good enough, etc. it's not just something one can choose to stop. Why dont he just get a brain? -___-' *facepalm*

55- are you handicapped? I'm pretty sure op's mom could just easily put her in the hospital and she would be force fed and if she still didn't want to eat they would shove a tube down her throught. Yes malnutrition is very serious but being anorexic is extremely stupid, she clearly has food and can eat. It's her own fault for not doing so. Dont go around calling people retarded or handicapped for speaking their own opinion when you have a horrible point yourself.

It's no wonder she has psychological issues, she has no family support and the fact that her mom doesn't care probably made her become grosly thin to "become attractive" or for the attention. OP, find a good, caring therapist to get help. I wish you the best of luck.

It's an Alpha instinct. Illness is weakness, weakness is death. The incurably ill (mental illnesses rarely go away, they're just managed) are instinctively seen as weak and inferior, leading to very little sympathy for their plight.

16- The "natural instinct" bit works real well until you try to use it in today's society. Just yesterday I got slapped upside the head when I asked for sexual intercourse because my instincts told me to go for it. :(

25- You didn't get slapped for instinctually wanting and pursuing intercourse, as most people like to copulate: You got slapped for How you went about following that instinct. Most of the time, I believe it's the medium and not the message that is distasteful to most people. If you have the "silver tongue", you can tell someone they're an asshole, and they may thank you for it.

Or maybe maybe eating disorders I our subconsious way of wanting to die? Makes sense if you starve yourself you'll die. Makes sense to me.

25, it doesn't work all the time in the wild either. Watch discovery channel, some species are much more vicious when the answer is no. If instinct says go for it, give it your best. Just work on the delivery and watch out for jealous mates, they're known to attack without warning.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. Your mother shouldn't have reacted that way. I know, that it must of took some courage to tell her you relapsed. I have been though the same thing and I still am. There are free hotlines you can call for eating distorters and tons websites too
