Info and Support


I was around the internet...
I've found some stuff that can be interesting
And helpful in some way. :)
So, I decided to write today
In order to share it with you (L)

Note :
The material belongs
To it's rightful owners
No copyright infringment intent .
I shall leave the links below...

UPDATE : The links they are working now
So by clicking at them,
It will open to the website.

~ THEREisHOPE123
(I don't know if it is only one person
Or a group but the user was really kind to me
Not only towards me, but towards other users as well
As he/she or they have videos talking
About some of these issues
It is just a sugestion tho
And for the user[s] , thank you! (L) )

~ fastinggurl31

Are, in my opinion the best users on youtube
Who actually speak about eating disorders, s.h. ect.

...I personally advice professional help
But for a start, it would be good
For you to reach out for someone
A friend, a family member, a teacher
Someone who is supportive
Or that can somewhat relate to your problems
So that you can be heard
And properly understood/helped.

p.s.: In case someone does wonder why I only or mostly
Write about these subjects...
It's because I went through them
In some parts of my life.

For instance, I can't talk much about other situations
As eating disorders or other mental disorders...
Because I haven't got much through them.
In any case I can leave some links or even videos
Of those. But I'll check first
Then I shall post in case I find them useful;

To be honest I am thankful
That there are more people that understand
And that actually do something to help others
...Who are in these situations.
To whoever reads this I sincerely hope it helps
And that is one step for your recovery
A wake up call. A helping hand.
If you need someone, I'll be your friend :)

p.s.: Sugestions, help,
Comments and feedback, etc
Are more than welcome.
(Post them as comments on the page called "Email Contact"
Or try to write me on the email adress there)
Take care ! **
