Day One: List your stats (height/weight). What eating disorder are/have you been struggling with?
First of all. I’m not dignifying the first part of this question with a response. Seriously? Why would you ask someone with an eating disorder this.
I’ve restricted to varying levels, binged and purged, purged without binging, binged without purging, crash dieted, and eaten the strangest combinations of foods you can imagine in hopes of losing weight. In some way, shape or form, I’ve been dealing with an eating disorder for 6 years. For a 1-3 year period of my life I met the diagnostic criteria for Bulimia Nervosa and was eventually treated for it. The rest of it, I’d be filed under EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified). Despite losing a tremendous amount of weight at one point, and experiencing menstrual disturbances, my BMI was never low enough of to warrant an Anorexia diagnosis.
