Eating Disorder Help

“At Breathe, we found somebody who understood and didn’t just treat us a number or try to fit us into a box.” A recovered eating disorder sufferer.

If someone had given me this advice at 13, 17 or 21, I’d have stuck two fingers up at them!

Firstly I don’t need too lie to you to get you eating more, cutting the exercise right down, stop you obsessively counting and calculating every thing you put inside only to then obsessively count and calculate every step in order to counteract any goodness, kindness you have battled with your head in order to just have an “adequate” portion for that meal.

I’ve been there at 13 at 17 at 21 and I’m still here now at 33 fighting to live, only the difference is my body hurts, I’m tired and my skin breaks down.

I’ve lived twenty odd years in and out of units across the country and if you haven’t reached that place yet, my advice is take all outpatient help you can. It’s much slower, manageable and attainable.

Know that inpatient involves being hours away from home and being held down to be fed – because they don’t take no for an answer! There’s no negotiating with what you eat or when. And you can say goodbye to exercise until you’re a long way into being physically stable.

If someone had given me this advice at 13, 17 or 21, I would’ve stuck two fingers up at them! Trying to drum the into you the fact that I’ll never menstruate, conceive a child! You don’t care right now, but believe me you will at 33 when you’re looking at that as a very real possibility.

There are two roads at the moment – outpatient or inpatient. I’m lucky to be given the chance to work with Breathe eating disorder clinics in the UK. Don’t get me wrong, I’m physically and mentally exhausted. My head battles against it daily and guess what I’m only 5 weeks in but I know now at 33 there really are only two roads to take in all this (well and of course death) if only I’d have listened to people twenty years ago!

Please, please make the right call, people do care, let them in don’t be me at 33!

Breathe Aims 2

Clients find out what Precipitates, Perpetuates and Pre-disposes them to what currently keeps them unhappy and in self-destructive behavioural patterns and habits.Through this new self-awareness they develop new goals and strategies in every area of their life and learn how to work towards them. You can see credentials and our team capabilities here.

Breathe is a nurse-led service. This means that we take a holistic approach to treatment, are person centred and we are an advocate for patient health and wellbeing. Nurse-led services also means that we are skilled in both managing services and people in a multi-disciplinary approach.

Appointments can be made 9am – 9pm Monday to Friday as well as 9am – 5pm on Saturdays. Where ever you may be in Lancashire and the North West, we have extended opening hours as we understand that it is not always possible to come out of work or education in order to attend your appointments.

It is also possible to receive treatment at home specifically in the case of a Severe and Enduring Eating Disorder.
