Welcome to the Beyond Blue forum and thank you for sharing your story with us,
We're sorry to hear about your history with an eating disorder and how it prevented you from participating in a sport you loved. We can hear this was a really difficult time for you and that it still impacts you today. Do you feel there is anyone you can reach out to? a family member or friend? we understand it can be so hard to reach out when we aren't feeling our best but often people do want to help.
If you feel there isn't anyone around who you can trust, please reach out to the Beyond Blue Support Service.
We’re available 24/7 by phone on 1300 22 4636 or on Webchat 1pm-12am AEDT on our website: www.beyondblue.org.au/getsupport
. One of our professional mental health counsellors at our Support Service will give you support and point you in the right direction for help in your area.
You might also like to get in touch with the Kids Help Line
. They are a confidential and anonymous, telephone and online counselling service specifically for young people aged 25 and under.
We hope to hear back from you.
