My mom says I am anorexic, How can I gain my body waight ?

how do i get better without going to a group or anything I do eat, so obviously 'eat more' isn't an intelligent answer. I know I'm skinny, I want to gain weight. I'm not motivated and I don't try. I don't think I'm fat.

The process of identifying and dealing with anorexia is only one step in the road to healthy living for a patient. Individuals recovering from anorexia need to mix immediate nutrient gains with a long-term diet focused on restoring normal weight. You need to develop a comprehensive weight gain plan following medical treatment for anorexia.

So, you're confirming that you are in fact anorexic? I can tell you, from experience, it's not a disorder that you can't rid yourself from, just because you're tired of having it. It's a continuous, daily struggle. A few options if you want to get better are therapy, counseling, or rehab. They all have different names, but are essentially the same on some level. EDIT: These people that answered are obviously idiots and completely ignorant to the illness. "Eating a cheeseburger" isn't a cure. Fucking morons. EDIT: Okay, I just read your additional details. You want to gain weight, but are unsure how. Honestly, you're probably fine where you're at. If you insist, to please yourself and mom, though, I can tell you that it may be harder than you think. You're one of those people blessed with a fast metabolism, I'm guessing. Enjoy it! When you're much older, you'll wish you still had it.
