Default Wanting an eating disorder??

Ok so I know that this is going to make me sound stupid and like an attention seeker, but I really want an eating disorder. Not for attention! I just feel like I need something, like an addiction, and I want to be skinny! I know all the statistics and side effects and I understand it's a really serious mental disorder, yet I still want one! I've cried so many times because I can't make myself purge and I have no self control and it makes me hate myself! Please no hate, I didn't mean this offensively as I do understand how much it affects the sufferer and the people close to them but I was just wondering if anyone else has felt the same or know what I should do! Xx

You don't need to purge, please don't. Purging is something like cutting, once you start, binging and purging, you can't stop.

I don't even know you, and I'm sure that you're very pretty just the way you are, you don't have to starve yourself to make yourself look like the supermodels, be YOU.
And if you really DO want to lose weight, please don't go to extremes. A little bit of diet and exercise can go a loooooong way, trust me, I've lost plenty of weight without having to rob myself of the nutrients that I need, and you don't either.
I really hope this helps.

I understand the feeling, just first know I have to say something otherwise I feel morally wrong: you don't want this. I have overcome drugs, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, abuse, etc. and it's my ED that still has control over me. Sure, I have made progress on that front, don't get me wrong, but it's the only one that keeps coming back for me, not to mention even if I "recovered," I still have to deal with the affects of it.

Anorexia and bulimia are not self-control. You have more control over yourself now than you will if you start down that road. It's odd, as for me the draw WAS the control, but in the end you are a slave to that voice in the back of your mind and it won't let you go easily.

That out of the way, how people overcome "addictions" is replacing them with something else. You don't have an eating disorder yet, but you might benefit from the same idea. The obvious choices would be exercise (although be careful) or a healthy meal plan (not a diet), but any sort of lifestyle change or good habit could benefit. Anything to distract you too. And sometimes, we aren't ready to change. Don't get frustrated if you keep "failing" (although, what's that famous quote? Failure can only be achieved if you stop trying or whatever it is) cause maybe you aren't ready for drastic lifestyle changes. I remember with self-harm, I was unable to stop for years and then one day I was fully ready and I literally stopped just like that, with only one or two slip-ups in the coming months. Of course, that's how I've always operated, but I'm of firm belief that someone can't get better unless they are fully ready and committed.


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
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.

Thing is that when u are skinny u wanna get skinnier and this forms a visous cycle. When I used to be skinny till 15 or so I wanted to lose more and infact ate very very little......Ttill I was 16 I used to be really stick skinny ..then suddenly I started putting on weight despite a very poor diet....It was really embarrassing, everybody saying "you've put on and patting my tummy and alll...I was devastated, I wanted my washboard abs.to show off at beach...After much thought i saw...this is normal weight gain of growing up. I gave up dieting and started eating lyk a normal teen.....my waist went from a skinny 26 in to healthy 32 in....I now weigh 64kg from 48kg at 5 foot 10...and I continue to put on weight .still I go to beach...go shirtless...my tummy may not have rips it had earlier and may be shiny and plump but that is the normal........added advantage is my butt which was non existent before has now grown to be a really cute bubble butt...my GF cant keep her hands off my new bubble butt!!!.....

I know what you're talking about, I have felt that way before too, except I can't explain why just like you.

feel free to pm me, I'd love to talk to others!

get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer
because theres something inside you
that made you keep trying
despite everyone who told you to quit"

You don't need an eating disorder to lose weight, there are many healthy alternatives to do so without straining yourself like that... people die because of those. Excercise and diet, it does work, it worked for me!

You don't want to kill yourself just so you look pretty and skinny. Healthy lifestyle is what you need, like diet and exercise. If you have a dog, then run with him in order to burn some calories and stop eating unhealthy foods.

There are better ways to lose weight, and be "skinny", besides damaging your body and depriving it of nutrients that it needs. Diet, exercise... something as easy as walking every day and drinking more water than soda. There's no need to potentially harm yourself for the sake of an outter apperance...

Having a eating disorder can and will mess your body up, your hormones / chemicals become unbalanced, you in crease your risk for different things ( heart attacks can be deadly ) and alot more. Im 5"4 & 1/2 and 89 pounds , Some months ill eat noramlly and some months Im not hungry so I starve myself but not like extreme cause sometimes I have to force myself to eat , you don't want a eating disorder , I don't think I have one but you don't want it

I don't know why anyone would want an eating disorder. I've been fighting bulimia for 6 years, heck I was able to quit smoking easier than this! The guilt I have every time I eat, the self shaming, the constant work I do to look right, the purging, these are all things I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

Although I have never had any personal problems when it comes to eating disorders, I have seen and read enough to know that regardless of what it is, whether you're not eating enough or eating a lot in a certain period of time, an eating disorder is most certainly not something you want. It will not only affect your health, but you'll be potentially risking your life. If you feel as if you want to lose weight, then exercise and diet is what can help. It's cliche, I know, but it's said frequently because it's true. Get into working out to burn off calories, and change your diet to one that is more friendly and natural.

Also, I must ask; how often are you exposed to eating disorders? Do you have any friends or relatives that suffer from one, or do you frequently see reference to them online and on television? I feel as if you may be influenced greatly by the world around you, and could potentially be the cause of your desire for an eating disorder.

Hey girl! Look I have thought about this but then said screw it because I love food way too much. All you have to remember is that you are beautiful just the way you are. There is no need to hurt yourself like this just to look "pretty"! Trust me, super duper skinny is NOT in! (If you are naturally skinny and read this don't be offended. Didn't mean it that way.) If you eat healthy and play a healthy sport like soccer or basketball you should look great and feel great! Don't give up on food! Food is amazing yum.... If you find yourself thinking about purging, go talk to someone! There are plenty of people willing to listen because they love you. Again, don't give up on good and don't give up on yourself! Hope this was helpful

I think I know what you mean. In some cases of an eating disorder, the person feels addicted to the control it makes them feel. This may be what you're craving.
The only thing I can think of now would be to put that desire of control towards a good cause, like in a hobby. Master something you love, instead of hurting yourself.

Hope this helps. :/

Personally suffering from this. No matter how you say. No offense. It's not gonna make it like it not terribly awful that you are consciously seeking out an eating disorder. People with eating disorders know it's not about the fact of making yourself throw up. They know and don't care what they're doing to it. You say you can't make yourself throw up. You can. But you don't want to because you know it will hurt or cause problems. So you don't push hard enough. You say you don't have the control to stave. It's not about you having the control. The eating disorder itself controls you. People with eating disorders don't have the control to just eat. I'm sorry but I'm just really upset by this
