Took time off work due to mood episodes and instability. I’m bipolar 1 , anxiety, and now a possible eating disorder. My psychiatrist said he can’t help me anymore and I need to see a specialist, possibly even go to a rehab center to get help. I get anxious, throw up, and can’t stop. I don’t have negative self body image but I do think I should be skinner at 5 ft 4 and 94 lbs. I’ve NEVER had eating problems/purge until I became bipolar! There must be a link to everything.
Go to rehab center. I’ve been multiple times.
Take it easy dear, time for changes. Do what you can. How do you feel about the rehab center? Would you like another opinion from another doctor?
Sounds like a nice place to be but I know it’s not going to be for me. I don’t want to go because Im scared. I purge when I’m nauseous which is pretty much most days. I don’t wanna get fat. Some days I think I have a problem and other days I don’t. I thought what I was feeling and experiencing was normal especially for women. But it’s not. As far as second opinion it’s the best option for me. I live on Oahu and they want me to get treatment on Maui. I need a team of specialists for help I think. Can’t do this alone.
