Two months ago, something ticked inside of me. I have started taking Zanthrex tablets throughout the day, exercising a lot, occasionally vomiting and abstaining from food intake. I am already seeing a therapist. What can he do that will help me get back on track?
This is a very good question to ask your therapist. Any good therapy needs to have a goal or purpose. Could you and your therapist agree on a goal of you being as thin and toned as you can be while still being healthy, having your periods and not thinking about how you look and what you eat all the time? You do have to think about how you look and what you eat some of the time. It's a matter of balance. It sounds like you recognize that your life is not in good balance now. This is great. The role of the therapist and doctor and nutritionist is to support you as you struggle to understand and balance these issues in you life. Good luck!
