I need patience.
1. I am getting fed up and angry with Adventism. I want to get as far away from it as humanly possible. There are so many false teachings and they often put themselves on a pedestal. Sabbath is pretty much their god. There's so much concern over laws we're not even under. I just can't do this anymore.

2. I'm getting sicker all the time. I'm afraid and stuck. I don't know to eat enough and if I eat more than I originally plan to in a day, I will do extra exercise (even if everything adds up to being under 1000 calories). I don't want to die. I don't want to get osteoporosis. I am scared, but I feel like I can't do anything. I'm still waiting for when we can set up appointments with a counselor or therapist. It takes time. I also need a dietitian or nutritionist. I can't eat normally anymore without loads of guilt. The amount of calories in the meals I make for myself keeps decreasing. I feel so lonely.

Also, another Adventist god is Ellen White.
Here are her regular sources: 1. Other authors by plagiarizing their work
2. Her own imagination
3. Secretary
4. Demons

She says so many things that you can't back up with Scripture. Why do people read her books and take her seriously? She is just like Charles Taze Russell and Joseph Smith and all the new age people. It's scary. I don't want to be around this stuff anymore.

1. I'm praying for you. I wish I could do more, but then again some would say that there is nothing more important than that, so in more ways than one it is the best I can do I guess.

2. Eating disorders are a mental concern. Were I in your position, I would probably seek to get myself checked in to some counseling/recovery center. Not only would you get help for your eating disorder, but it would get you away from the SDA environment that is dragging you down.

Is there a non-SDA relative you can stay with, at least for a while? Have you reached out to a local non-SDA pastor? It tears my heart to hear your cries for help and know there is so little I can do.

A lot of my relatives are SDA (mum's side) or JW (dad's side). :/ Even if I had a Christian relative I wouldn't mind staying with, my parents wouldn't let me. They're pretty sure SDA is the remnant church. Plus, they would be really hurt if I wanted to stay with someone else.

I don't know any non Adventist pastors. The really funny thing is that I live across the street from a church. I've always wondered what it's like there.

By recovery center, do you mean the ones where you stay there? I would be nervous, but I'll be thinking about these things. I wonder if my family would even let me.

Hang in there sister, this will only last for a season.  I will be praying for you.

I suggested finding a pastor to talk to; in retrospect, perhaps a youth pastor or pastor's wife might be a better idea. You might also look for local support groups. My point is you need someone there with you, in person, "boots on the ground" so to speak.  In the meantime your friends here are praying for you. Keep trusting Jesus!

Praying for you.....leaving a church is very difficult, even when you know it's what you need to do.

That is awesome! I suppose you won't be able to discuss our dislike of the SA church if your mother is with you, but that's fine. One issue at a time.

We're still praying for you.

Well, my mom probably won't always be there in the room so if I have time alone with the therapist then I can totally tell her.
