    @Shaunie

    Is the crisis team not going to speak to you while you are in hospital, I think they need to get someone to speak to you.

    Please stay strong ❤️

    Morning @Shaunie how was your night darling, i never seem to sleep when i'm in hospital, always to much going on around you with other patients, or you have people snoring or shouting out in their sleep. Are you managing to get out of bed for a little walk.? x

    Are you on a big ward bab or just a few of you, when my other half was in when he had an heart attack first year of covid he was in a six bed ward but only three beds in use, so i was wondering if the hospitals have gone back to using all the beds now. Hope the foods okay ??? x

    I’m not eating the food. It’s a ward with 6 beds but most are in use. There’s 5 of us here.

    Are you not fancying the food, or is there another reason you're not having it @Shaunie?

    I'm not sure if we've spoken much before. It's lovely to meet you :)

    I see @Shaunie :) Are the doctors aware that you're trying to lose weight, and so aren't eating at the moment?

    I haven’t told them my plan. They’ll get concerned because I don’t weigh that much anyway

    Glad your going to speak to the doctor about your eating. As @janer1967 sd you need to eat especially just now you need to keep your strength up. 
    Your doing the right thing telling the doctors or nurses how your feeling ❤️

    Yes, I think it's important that you tell them, especially if you're already struggling with your weight @Shaunie :) 

    I don't want to make any assumptions, but if you do feel as though you may be struggling with an eating disorder, you might find it helpful to get in touch with Beat.

    It's good to tell them the plan as it's dangerous to loose weight when you don't weigh much. Why do you want to loose weight? Also well done for taking painkillers I'm glad they offered you some. With regards to the crisis team have they seen you yet?

    I'm glad you've found Beat nice @Shaunie :) 

    I'm sorry to hear that your friend has been treating you like that. Have you told them how this makes you feel, and that it's been triggering your eating disorder?
