 Hi. :). I am new here, and I am not exactly sure how this works. 

I am desperately trying to find some kind of support group or community. I have been struggling with anorexia off/on for nearly 6 years now. In the beginning of October 2019, I had my fourth inpatient treatment followed by day program for one month. (I finished it all by Christmas). I am really struggling to stay on track. 

I've been really struggling the past few weeks- even engaging in ED behaviours. I used to belong to a support chat on facebook but I am not sure its an option anymore (long story). I would really love to have some kind of support like that again. I have a lot of good things going for me right now but my anxiety and ED voices are really bad, and I tend to relapse around the holiday periods. I really dont want to mess up my life. I am pretty desperate for support and encouragement right now. I would love to offer it as well.

Well anyway, that is a little about me and why I joined. If anyone reads this, I hope you are doing well and have a wonderful day. (:
