Been trying to get over Anorexia and overexercise for months now, ive been to the gP and tried various psy therpies which seem to not work or frustrate me, plus they are mega expensive. I now have other physio and physical problems brought on due to my mental health. I feel like im just going back and forth and not getting anyway. GP isnt that helpful. Everything costs $$$ my body is so tired and i hate my job , i thought about quiting but i need $$ and im not sure whether im unhappy in my job due to my illness or what my job is contributing to it.
eug... so lost. my partner has almost given up and i cant bear to tell my parents cos they been thru this a few years ago and almost broke them then.

Welcome to the forums, I'm one of the moderators.
That sounds incredibly tough trying to recover from anorexia and feeling like what you've tried so far in treatment hasn't been the best fit for you. It sounds like you're really worried about the impact of this on your relationships. That's really tough and can feel so isolating. I hope you can find lots of support and help here on the forums.
I also wanted to let you know about the Butterfly Foundation. They are a leading organisation in the support and treatment of eating disorders. Their national helpline is 1800 334 673. I'm wondering if they can help link you to some specialised support.
Take care of yourself and I hope to see you more on the forums,
