I think my English teacher is starting to get suspicious. Honestly, can't wait until I get to college because then you don't have people shoving their way in every other minute.

Hey my love, first off i just wanted to say that as someone who spent the majority of their time at school with special consideration, in separate rooms or (the cherry on the fucking cake) in sick bay from severe anxiety, I honestly have so much sympathy for how much pressure there is in school with everyone watching you all the time and trying to interfere with eating. I remember feeling like there was no escape or safety for me: i didn't want to be at home under my parent's supervision and school was even worse bc of the judgement that went on from the other kids (who, by the way, seem to say some really fucked up things without even realising it) and teachers being really intrusive. 

As awful as I'm sure it must be for you now, my love, I promise you it is not forever. Just get through this little shitty period of time and you're home free, and trust me you may not think you can do it but I know you can bc I did.  :wub:


anyhoo some lil pearls of wisdom that could possibly help you out while you're locked in the shithole:  


If possible, try and take yourself somewhere private and quiet for lunch so you can disappear and not have anybody looking over your shoulder, this way you have the freedom to just take a breather and not have to eat anything, or you could eat the little low cal things that you do feel comfortable with. Obviously id what your school is like, but some places that I tried to retreat to were the library or someplace private outside. 


I'd definitely advise you to pack super low cal foods or foods that you are happy with eating such as fruits and veggies and every so often make sure that people can see you eating them. Most people have so ittle understanding of our condition that they will see you eat once and automatically be reassured that you can't have an eating disorder (bc everybody knows that anorexics never fucking eat??? :wub:


I understand that this can't always be possible, but I used to pack a lunchbox from home and then throw it away when nobody was looking, but that way, people have seen you bring in food and when you're asked if you've had lunch you can show them the empty lunch box and just say you ate whatever you threw away. 


Last but not least (before this turns into a full fucking thesis) try and fill up your time as much as possible, the less time you have to eat, the more valid the excuse if you get caught skipping. As naasty as it is, get work done or go to activities during your breaks so that you dont have to eat in front of anyone  :rolleyes:  


Sorry about my long ass reply, I just really wanted to help you, and I hope this has brought you some comfort. I fyou have any questions or ever just need a listening ear, my messages are always open. 


much love xx

I bet if u were slightly overweight they wouldn’t care, but when someone is slightly underweight everyone starts playing doctors. Typical

Since you're talking about teachers being able to tell your parents, you're obviously in highschool or less. Seriously you should talk to a counselor. I know that's hypocritical since I'm on MPA too, but you're so young and my heart breaks you have this disease. Please try and work on your health, even in little ways because it'll make such a huge difference. If you can get help sooner, you'll have a higher chance of beating this and you know, not dying from it. I'm in my 20's and I hate that I still suffer from this. Take care of yourself.

Try: go to the cafeteria when ur supposed to have lunch. (U could bring a lunch bag or snack to sit on the table as a decoy if u feel necessary)
If u don’t have anyone to sit with, or can’t due to your anxiety, bring a book or homework to work on.

In high school, I frequently didn’t eat lunch, I just sat with a friend or two and did homework and no one ever bothered me. I would even sit alone occasionally and do homework and no one bothered me.

I don't eat at school. Every lunch I give my meals to my friends. At first they started to say " Why aren't you eating anything? " But after a while they got used to it I guess. Now they're laughing about it like " Oh yeah she never eats anything lol ". I remember one time there was this girl and she saw that I wasn't eating and she said " Why aren't you eating ? " and I just said that I didn't like the food and that I always eat at home after and she replied " Oh yeah that's why you aren't that skinny " and I was like ???? how can you say that to a person who obviously look so scared of eating. 


Yeah, so if they're asking you to eat just buy food and act like you're about to eat and if they're really on your back, just tell them to shut up and that you're fine ! :3

I was tossed from a college course b/c I was underweight. I could've stayed if I wanted to start eating.  I just left the course and got frustrated and pissed as a result. 


I'd recommend not getting your teachers curiosity up. They can do damage if they think you're getting too thin. 


They might just tell your parents sooner than you think or make you eat in front of them. 


You really need to handle that situation before it gets out of your control.  B)


they literally kicked you out of the course?? what kind of course was it??

My experience with teachers is that they never cared if someone eats or not.


The only time that someone brought my weight, was when my teacher said "I am not surprised that you are often sick, skinny people have harder time fighting diseases..."


I am going to a new school next semester, so hopefully no nosy teachers will be there.

My teachers know I have anorexia but they don't try to make me eat because it won't help me at all. They do say things like "you look very sick" or whatever but genuinely my teachers are mostly helpful and supportive

I'd ask if they have a medical degree, and if they say no then I'd tell them to stop asking.

I always turned this stuff around and directed it at the obese kids. Not the nicest thing, but it seemed like a huge double standard. Sorry, but if you're harassing me you have to harass them too. Fighting with them and winning the arguments actually got me over a lot of social anxiety lol

I've literally found the best answer ever. Say that you usually use the bathroom a lot / for a long time after eating & can't risk doing that at school.
