Sometimes people who have anorexia find it difficult to trust the family, friends, health professionals, and other caring people who are trying to help them. There are many reasons for this, ranging from anxiety about losing control and gaining weight to confused thinking because of malnutrition. And it can be hard to trust a whole new way of eating, exercising, and taking care of yourself.
If you are diagnosed with an eating disorder, it may take some time to develop trust in the people who are trying to help. But you can do it with practice.
