For questions and concerns

Okay so I am a senior in high school and I plan on continuing my education and attending a University this fall. My mom, however, has other plans for me. She thinks I am anorexic. I have always been underweight, but never even diagnosed with anorexia or anything. It is really annoying, but that is not my main problem. My main problem is that now she does not even want me to go to college! She wants me to take a year off until I get “better”, but again I was never diagnosed with anorexia, don’t starve myself, don’t try to lose wight, etc. Just because I am underweight apparently in her mind, makes me anorexic. I would be absolutely DEVASTATED and hopeless if everyone in my life moved on while I stayed back. I can’t just take a year off, I know that that’s not the right path for me. I don’t know what to do because my mental health is important too which apparently she doesn’t understand. And I won’t stay behind, I refuse. I don’t know what to do. It feels like no one’s on my side. I am not happy, I haven’t been happy in a long time. She keeps taking me to different clinics and doctors and things don’t change because this is just how my body is. My regular doctor even says I am fine and healthy. And now I can’t move on with my life. Because of her delusions. I really don’t know what to do. My life has been like this for a while and now it’s just getting worse. I feel miserable. I need help. (Sorry I just really put my feelings and soul out there. And this is really personal to me. Thank you for reading.)

The only thing I can really say to you is that when you turn 18, they don’t have much power with what you do. You learn how to respect them without always agreeing with what they say, and in the end, it is your life, and you have to do what is best for you.

I can actually offer up some advice since my mother insisted that I was anorexic for a few years.
