    If it was not of my parents

    and my boyfriend, I think I would not be eating. In fact, I know I am skinny, maybe too skinny, but even knowing it, I feel the urge to eat, but I don't cook food for myself. I have food rages sometimes, in which I eat alot, but after that, I just feel so guilty.

    Am I Anorexic?

    I've always been skinny, but it hasn't occurred to me until recently that it's really the only attractive thing about me. Sometimes I think it's the only good thing about me at all. I'm not good in school, I suck at relationships, I have almost no friends, never in my life have I...

    It started two years ago-my freshman year in

    high school. I began not eating breakfast, and then when I was being made fun of in the cafeteria-I stopped eating lunch at school. Now I am very scared to go over 100 pounds. I am 5'0, and I believe due to the charts that I'm underweight. I shouldn't even follow the charts...

    Am I Anorexic?

    It started about a year ago when I decided that if I was going to kill myself, I needed to look better in a funeral dress, so I started cutting back, 2500 to 1500 then 500 then 300 then nothing if I could help it. I usually came home and had a mini-binge that added up to 800 at...

    It's so embarrassing and far fetched from my normal thought process to consider myself anorexic but I think I may be. It started about a year ago... I was single and about 50 pounds overweight. I had been heavy my entire life (20 years at that point) and one day woke up and...

    I Think I'M An Anorexic

    I think I'm fat. This started a little over a year ago. In December this year, I started really obsessing about food and weight. I would read the labels on everything I ate. I began to eat healthier; swapping white bread for wheat bread, regular soda for diet. Later on I...
