Yes, Since I Was 1...

Yes, since i was 16 i have battled with both anorexia and bulimia. I'm 5'3" and at one point was hospitalized when i got down to 85 lbs. I wasn't sure what the fuss was all about. Both diseases slowly creep up on you and stupid me thought i could control them, but in the end they ended up controlling me and sickly became my best friend. I'm 45 now and still have to battle the urges, but i am starting to fail and anorexia, again, is invading my life. In a strange way, although i know that men have these problems too, but statistically less so than women, i am grateful that i have 2 boys.

I hope you can find a way to enjoy life without this problem.<br />
I wish you well

I used to starve myself so i could be a size 3.I'm 5' 5 and stayed around 100 pounds .I now weigh somewhere around 150 .I eat whenever i feel low .I've lost a few pounds but doing it wisely but old habits try their best to rear its ugly face .
