Could I request some hugs for myself please? :blush:

I notice alot of people asking for hugs for other members but I just needed some at the moment, but didnt want to come across as "woe is me". Well I guess I do feel a bit like that at the moment :wacko:

I feel really down, I feel like my head is falling apart. I made myself ill last night after not having done so for about 18 months. I was upset about things and thought it would help take the pain away like it seemed to when I was deep into my eating disorder.

But it didnt. And I know not to do it again. I just felt it was a new low for me. But its seemingly come out of nowhere - I was ok a few days ago.

My boyfriend doesnt really understand and feels bad about it. As much as I try to explain, he doesnt get it. He does try to but due to his lack of understanding the things he says to me tend to make me feel worse. They make me feel like I bring all this on myself. I feel bad for how I have made him feel so I then feel even worse about myself.

I want to be able to talk to him but I dont think I want to anymore. He said "There is always something that you're not happy with. I feel like I could try my hardest to give you what you want and you still wouldnt be happy." and "I'm fed up of hearing about it everyday".

And he wonders why I shut down. Well I'm fed up of him getting so frustrated at me. He's fed up of me and I am fed up with the lack of support :weep:

It was never going to be easy for either of us, I know it cant be easy for him. But I just want him to be a bit more supportive because he's my b/f and he's the one person I should be able to talk to (I think anyway).

He says I have got worse recently. He says its like he's going out with the anxiety instead of "Jo" :weep:

I feel so rough this morning. I didnt want to come into work. I just wanted to stay in bed under the covers, but I am here and just want to get through the next few hours.

So, if you could give me a few hugs, I'd really appreciate it :blush:

Thanks guys xxxxx

hi
here you are :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:
afraid i cant do the nice fancy ones though!
you have done really well to get into work so see that as a posative.
i work and i know what its like to drag yourself in whilst feeling so down.
things will get better but i know and am going through it too at the moment and sometimes it just doesnt seem that it will, but try to look at the posatives even if it is getting to work, or whatever you manage to achieve.
i hope your day gets better

Oh Lilith,

'course you can have a hug - here have millions!

You really are going through it at the moment aren't you, what with work as well.......

.....but honestly, you are doing well. You didn't stay home under the duvet, you got yourself into work (somewhere we know you'd rather not be) and are still there.

Try and take it hour by hour, or even half an hour by half an hour.

Glad you posted here so we can all support you. xxx

Hun Keep in touch with your PM's- I didnt realise how much of a rubbish time you are having at the moment.

My partner is exactly the same as yours and has said exactly the same thing as yours has. I realised that I wasnt going to get any better with his constant pressure so I told him I was leaving if he didnt at least TRY to understand what I'm going through. I made him read a claire weekes book and even though he still doesnt understand it, he knows what NOT to say now, which is better than him saying nice things.

We are all here for you :grouphug:

Take heart in the fact that you WILL get better :yesyes:

Keep your chin up-there is light at the end of this dark tunnel.

Much love
Lou xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Lil, lots of hugs from me to you :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

Its tough when the people closest to you don't understand, I know from experience ! But my therapist once advised me "He can't understand, but he loves you, so let him just be your boyfriend, not your therapist".


Now I come on here for support from those that understand, to either have a laugh when I'm down or vent a little when things are so frustrating.

Hope that helps a little, take care Lil. xx :flowers:

Hi Lilith,

Good luck with the job. To carry on working and going about your day takes tremendous courage and shows you are taking steps forwards. It can be frustrating when others don't understand but don't feel guilty because you can't help how you feel. Here's some big hugs coming your way.


:hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:
