Being hyper-critical of your body may mean that you have a negative body image. Having a negative body image can escalate into disordered eating. If you're experiencing eating or body image problems, there are 9 free helplines available in Australia. You may benefit from helpline support if you notice these symptoms:
You may feel so ashamed of your body and your eating habits that you want to hide away and disengage from the world. It may be hard to open up about how you're feeling because you may think that you'll be misunderstood.
Taking the first step to talk to someone about what you're going through is hard but the sooner you get help, the sooner you may start to feel better. When you contact a helpline in Australia, a trained helpline counselor will listen to your concerns and offer you the support you need.
