Hotline support for eating disorders and body image issues is available in Bosnia and Herzegovina

If you can't stop criticizing your body or if you're using extreme measures to try to control the way your body looks, you may have a problem. Eating disorders often start this way. If you experience any of these symptoms, consider getting support from one of 1 hotlines in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

  • Over-exercising as an attempt to control weight and make up for eating too much.
  • A lack of energy and fatigue.
  • Mood swings due to hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiences.
  • Regularly checking your body in the mirror for flaws.
  • Withdrawal from social activities, especially ones that involve food and eating.
  • Lying to others about whether you have eaten so you can skip meals.
  • Comparing your body shape and/or weight to others.
  • Feeling uncomfortable eating in front of others.

You may feel like you have to hide your eating and body image issues. You may feel ashamed or guilty for having bad thoughts about your body and for using harmful behaviors to control your weight. The prospect of telling someone about what you're experiencing can be scary.

It can be hard to deal with the feelings of shame and guilt that so often accompany negative body image and disordered eating. Admitting that you've lost control and that you need help may feel harder than keeping your problems to yourself.

For free and confidential support with eating and body image, consider contacting a hotline in Bosnia and Herzegovina today.
