Question: how do i get over thinking im fat when im not?
so ill quickly give you my story.. im 23 and have been extremely sick for the past year. in february i got down to 38 kilos (83 pounds) and ended up in hospital on a drip unable to feed myself. i hated how skinny i was and when i looked at myself in a full length mirror i just burst into tears because i looked anorexic! as i started to get a little better i was told by doctors to eat as much as possible, and also use a hospital formula protein drink to put on weight. i did this and got back up to a perfect weight within 3months. because i gained weight so quickly, i now feel so uncomfortable and overweight. i know that im not because im at the low end of a perfect BMI, but my mind justwont stopp telling me “you are too fat”. sometimes i lose my appetite and dont finish meals because im scared to gain weight. before all this i never obsessed about how i look and its driving me crazy! how do i get over this. its almost like an anorexic type thinking. do i need therapy?

obviously you need therapy if you are aware of a problem but cant fix it yourself
