I Think I Have An Eating Disorder

    I'm really not sure what to say.

    It started really slowly. On days that I had somewhere to go and I was wearing something form fitting, I wouldn't eat until I got home into my pyjamas for fear of bloating and ruining my figure for the day. I've always been thin, complimented, and I just love eating more than...

    I'M More Than A Little Conflicted...

    In the past 5 months I went from 150lbs to 110lbs. But I didn't do it the conventional way.. Over that time period I've developed anorexia nervosa and bulimia. And my boyfriend thought I'd stopped months ago, but recently he's found out. He told me to stop losing weight at 125lbs...

    I'm hungry but if I eat I feel guilty.

    I haven't eaten today and my stomach feels like it's on fire.

    I've been through a lot of the feels recently.

    My girlfriend just started therapy and I would never have the balls to ask for help * hence why I'm here* however, long story short, I'm depressed. I'm happy with my life but I'm depressed and my depression and anxiety makes my stomach churn this time around. *I've struggled...

    But Who Knows

    I'm a very picky eater, I don't like most foods. I'm 5'4"-5'5" and I will weigh anywhere between 105-115lbs. I eat barely one meal a day but I don't starve myself or throw up. I'm just never hungry.

    I'm not sure if I actually do have one,

    but anyway, here it goes. A month ago, I was OBSESSED with piano and I skipped my meals to play it. I've done it for a while, and now I refuse to eat lunch and breakfast. I get mad if I do eat, and I recently started to eat sweets at night (1AM) out of stress and stuff. I'm...

    .. I'm so used to saying

    that "something is wrong with my stomach, I just can't hold food down".. For years that I think I actually believed it. Realizing recently that I don't have the same eating habits as everyone else I know. Everyone is always joking about how "light" my stomach is.. Yet I find...

    So for the past couple of years,

    (2011-now) i would go to school and just push through without eating, and by my last year in school I wasn't eating everyday, I could go the day without eating and now I only usually eat twice a day, and my mum is starting to get worried. When I was younger, I was a chubby...

    or anything...I just don't eat... I'm just never hungry...but when I do eat I get sick like I throw up or get bad diarrhea. but it's definitely not normal for me to be eating so little, like today I ate a small little bowl of mac & cheese and that's all I ate.. technically...

    I'm not sure if its an eating disorder

    or not but this is what happens: 90% of the time I'm not hungry and i rarely eat not because I'm punishing myself but I just don't feel like eating. Whenever I do eat I only eat snacks and junk food sometimes a good meal.If I get very upset I will refuse any food at all.

    I wake up in the morning,

    and I don't eat anything. Yeah, my stomach growls but I've gotten used to it. I feel guilty every time I eat and I've even tried to make myself throw up. But the worst part is, no one even knows I'm so upset.

    I Don't Think I Have An Eating Disorder, But Other People Think I Do

    I'm 5'6" and I weigh 102 lbs. I do not starve myself or throw up after meals. Though I do overly obsess about my body image. I feel very fat, because when I sit down my stomach bunches up and wrinkles a little. I often diet. I take diet pills sometimes. I will for days just rely...

    Well I was overweight

    for many years I was over 250 pounds but over the last 2 years I've lost over 100 pounds. I've been doing good about dieting and exercising and eating right but for a while I was just not eating at all and would pretty much starve myself. I would eat maybe a thousand calories a...

    I seem to restrict what I eat,

    only eating at the right times socially and often not eating anything all day until 7pm. I can then often overeat and lose control. EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified) has been mooted. Or non-purging bulimia. How do I even begin to address this?

    I don't know, honestly.

    Everyone thinks I have an eating disorder. I'm not sure. Honestly....I don't really know what anorexia is...*sigh*. I just know that medically.....I'm underweight. I'm 5.3ft tall and I weigh about 77lbs. However, standing in front of a mirror....all I can see is fat. My thighs...
