Default Re: The start of a real eating disorder? (Anorexia)

Please don't. If it grows, it's not going to be "Okay, I can see my ribs. I'll stop." It simply won't. I'm thirty pounds underweight right now. I never wanted that. My period stopped, which was my goal, far before I stopped starving myself. It's a drug. You can't just stop doing it, as you can't do so even now. And it will just get harder to overcome. The sooner you fix it, the easier it'll be (I feel like I'm repeating what I said in November's VT Podcast).

I wouldn't go along with that, hun. I don't know who would want to teach their FRIEND how to purge. Why would she want to lead you down this path? It's hard for me to even read about it like this, let alone to see someone going through it.

Please hun. I told you my story for a reason.

Best wishes.

And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.

You don't want to purge.
Trust me.
Get rid of that friend of yours.

Yeah, I know. I'm working on it but it seems like everytime I take a step in the right direction, I jump three steps back again.
I ate close to 1000 calories each day of the weekend. About 800-1000, but as soon as I hop on the scale and notice the weight gain, I fall right back to 300-500 calories a day.
I don't even know if it's ED-NOS because their haven't been times where I've continuiously starved myself. I don't think I've gone a day without eating before. I just restrict my calorie intake.

Are either of you guys seeing a professional for you're eating disorder?

Oh I can understand that! I'll probably be like that too. =p At least you tried. That's the important part.

I've been seeing someone for years and my personal doctor has been getting into the ordeal recently.

No matter the eating disorder we're dealing with, it doesn't matter if you completely starve yourself or just restrict your calories. I've gone days without eating, but I obviously never stopped eating since I'm still here People with eating problems might go a period without eating, but unless they let their organs fail, they will start eating a bit eventually. And then it could really be any amount of calories they eat.

I've never been told so directly, but with the diagnostic criteria I've looked over and how my doctor is going about helping me, I'm quite certain I have/had anorexia nervosa.

Default Re: The start of a real eating disorder? (Anorexia)

But what if you haven't gone periods with starving yourself? That's why I'm wondering if I even have an eating disorder or if I'm just really critical of myself. =\


I will, I plan on it. I have to wait until my doctor has a spot open for me to see her. The problem with getting help is that I'm planning to join the Army in June and they won't take you if you're diagnosed with anything. I already have to go to get my Bipolar diagosis overturned (because it was bogus), It wouldn't look good if I had to get something else overturned as well. =\

No, plainly restricting calories is a problem also, and can still be diagnosed as any of those eating disorders.
