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.
