I'm always worried that if I admit my ED to anyone, by telling a friend, or seeing a councellor/doctor, or even posting here, it will come back to be used against me later in life.
What do people think about this? Does anyone know much about privacy, mental health records, councellors and employment? I'm considering staying on in Aus for my career (I am currently studying there) - does anyone know much about Aus in particular?
I know that each person admitting their fallability is good for the world, as it helps destroy that myth that we all have to be/can be perfect all the time. However I have a hard time applying this to myself, and have previously been pretty intensely discriminated against on a personal level due to my ED past. Basically I'm scared and it's stopping me seeking help, and I don't know where to go from here because the thing is, I can't talk to anyone about it.
