I'm 14 and I feel so fat

Letter from Lauren, aged 14

I feel so fat. I’m 14 and I have had an eating disorder for about 5 months and I live on a few pieces of toast and banana for a week and I drink loads of water. My parents haven’t got a clue. I chuck my lunch away and I always say I’m going out for food after school but I never do. It’s beginning to affect my school work and netball. I play netball at a high level but I always pass out when playing. I just want to be normal again I haven’t had a period in ages, help!
