“No, You Don’t Look Ill”

“No, you don’t look ill” were the words just said to me whilst I was sat stark naked in the bath. I’m so full of anger and confusion right now. I don’t know who or what to believe. If I don’t look ill then why am I on a general ward? Why do I have an NG tube? Why do I have to use a wheelchair? Nothing makes sense anymore and I wish I could press the ‘stop’ button on all of this. I don’t even know the point of this post, I just wanted to share how I was feeling and get it out of my system somehow. To be told I don’t look ill when I have anorexia and still have weight to gain has just thrown me head first into utter termoil and I don’t know what to do.

  1. Depends on who it was. Someone on social media is just a troll looking for attention and a reaction from you that they don’t deserve. Was it someone on a staff – a nurse? If so that needs to be reported right away to someone in a higher position. Do your research and find out who. That sort of treatment of patients is sickening and should not be tolerated whatsoever, especially someone in your position. I’ve had therapists tell me their weight (!!!) and prescribe diets to me while anorexic: I promptly fired their arses.
