Should I leave my boyfriend or I should go to the doctor?
By the way we were dating 7 months.
And yes, I went to the doctor several times, but it didn't help me.
I am 19. My height is 5'10 and my weight is 103:)

I think that you should seek professional help. You are underweight and anorexia is a serious condition that requires medical attention and psychological counselling as personal problems, self-esteem issues etc. are often the cause. You are not alone: Many young women (and sadly, an increasing number of young men) have suffered from anorexia, but there are ways to overcome it. You've taken the first step and went to see a doctor, which I think is great. But especially if his approach did not help you, I believe that seeking the opinion of a psychologist may be a good idea. If you're still in school or university: Some schools and colleges offer counseling free-of-charge, this is an easy way to get the help you need fast.
Also, ask yourself why you feel that you have to limit your food intake so drastically. When did your problems start? Are you unhappy with the way you look? Does your relationship with your boyfriend have anything to do with your condition? I'm not asking these questions because I expect to get an answer from you but you should ask yourself what is causing your anorexia so that you (and the professional) can find ways to improve your mental and physical well-being.
About your boyfriend: Whether you should leave him or not is a decision that only you can and should take. You wrote that he hates the fact that you're anorexic: Is he worried about you or does he give you the feeling that you're not worthy of him because you're underweight? You deserve somebody that gives you his full support, regardless whether you're healthy or sick. Just keep that in mind when making your decision. Good luck and get well soon!0
