OCD Induced Anorexia, really need advice

Edited , 2 users are following.

So i do not have typical Anorexia, mine is caused by my OCD "Magical thinking" OCD to be exact, the fear that something really bad will happen to me next year if i eat when my OCD tells me not to

I know this is not a OCD forum but i am mainly looking for advice regarding the help i can get due to my weight loss, AMHT seem at a loss or not overly concerned by this despite me now weighing 6 stone 13lbs, 34 year old male at 5ft9 in height

How low does your weight have to go before AMHT take you seriously and see it as a Emergency? rather than the 5 months i been going through hoops trying to get treatment, i been told going into a eating disorder unit is not possible due to the nature of my Anorexia
