Anorexic
Hi everyone. I am super depressed these days. Being an anorexic patient is not easy! It comes with a lot of internal problems. I am also on anti-depressants and there are days where I want to lock myself up and just cry. I guess the main reason for all of this is the desire to get pregnant. However, my partner and I have been trying for months now but there has been no news. please help.

Hey Angel! I think you're talking about anorexia nervosa. It's sad to hear. I hope you are seeing someone for this. You also said you were taking anti-depressants. Because you can't get pregnant? Well it's a good thing you joined the forum. Look around you, all of us want one single thing, to become a mom. Every little fighter is fighting her own little battles. They fail. They think of giving up. But do you know what they do? They don't give up. Stay strong!

Hey there. I hope you're doing good. Yes, anorexia can bring very serious problems sometimes. It is an eating disorder. It's characterized by low weight, fear of gaining weight and a strong desire to be thin. Many people with anorexia see themselves as overweight even though they are in fact underweight. Women with anorexia may not gain weight during pregnancy. They risk having a baby with abnormally low birth weight. Low birth babies are at higher risk of serious medical problems. Brain bleeding and heart defects can occur. In this condition getting pregnant can even get your life at risk. You should take several therapies for this first. DBT and CBT will give you good results. ERP has also found effective. Just don't lose hope. You'll get through this. And everything will be fine. If things still don't go right, you can go for surrogacy. As carrying a baby is such a condition can get your and your baby's life at risk. I hope that things go right with you. Take care of yourself. Stay strong.

Listen. please don't do this to yourself. Why are you feeling this way. It's just a matter of time. After sometime everything is going to be fine for you. May you get well soon dear. First of all please try to stop taking these pills. Why are taking these pills? Doctor told you to do it?? If yes than ask him about your current condition. If not than leave them right away. Just try to be calm. Everything will be fine my friend. Just be happy. Don't worry please. Best of luck. Something great ahead is waiting for you.

Hello. I am so sorry for whatever you are going through. It must be a very hard time of your life for you. Dealing with depression is not an easy thing at all. You have to suffer every minute of the day and try to act normal in front of everyone. I am very sorry that you have not been able to conceive for such a long time. Depression can be one of the main reason for you not being able to conceive. the first step you can take towards a successful pregnancy is to be happy and get rid of depression.I know that getting rid of depression is not an easy task but try to be with your family and friends and get rid of negative energy. Once you get rid of all the stress then you will be able to conceive. how to consult your doctor for one night treatments. I am very sure that there is some kind of a treatment out there for you which can solve your problem.

Anorexia can be so hard to deal with.I was watching a documentary about it.It is absolutely heartbreaking.I think you should start proper treatment for it.Also, try using supplements to meet your daily needs.They really help out anorexic patients.It can be really hard to carry a child with this condition.Why don't you opt for surrogacy? it's probably the sounder option for you.
