It sounds like people know about your eating disorders because of the treat you have received and continue to either get or seek. We hope you can share with somebody about your suicidal thoughts as well. Whether it is a family member, friend, teacher, or counselor at school, suicidal thoughts are simply to heavy to carry around all by yourself. You would benefit from sharing how you feel with somebody else. You could even tell the therapists or psychologists that you work with in your Eating Disorders treatment, they likely will able to help you better than anybody. You deserve to feel better and the first step to feeling better is to reach out for help. Please find the courage to do so.
The other thing you can do to try and cope with your emotional pain is to tap into some good coping skills. These are things that you can do to either release feelings or distract yourself from the emotional pain, or do something that you enjoy and are proud of. I see that your email address is peaceluvdance, are you a dancer? Dancing can be a great way to express yourself. Whether it is choreographing a dance to a favorite song or taking a class, dance can be a powerful way to express yourself and it can make you feel better as well. Be sure to do so healthily though, and make sure you are eating enough in order to do the strenuous work that can come with dancing. Other positive coping skills can be spending time with a pet, writing, drawing, painting, volunteering, or listening to music. We hope you can find healthy things to do when you feel bad so that you can feel better.
