I live in a village; I eventually decided that the risk of everyone knowing was less than the risk of doing myself some damage. That was when I told my parents about both the self harm and the eating disorder. You need to think about what you're doing to yourself; constantly throwing up will rot your teeth and destroy your insides and starving added to that will give you brittle bone disease and could make you infertile. Is the thought of embarrassment really worth not preventing this?
