    You seem to be excited about it. :file: You need help, form a doctor. Because bragging about it isn't very cool.
    You may as well say, then, that everyone else in this thread making an admission about a personal eating disorder is 'bragging'. Why single her out? She was just sharing.

    I've never had a diagnosed eating disorder, but I have gone through patterns of disordered eating. I use to binge on food a lot. And I use to fast, but not all the time. Only when I felt like I needed to :think:

    But now I eat somewhat properly, I think. Although sometimes I scare myself with how obsessed I am with my body and what I put into it.

    Because of my friends comparing themselves to me, saying I'm so skinny, blah blah blah, I've become A bulimic, and Anorexic.
    If they're calling you skinny, why would you become bulimic? Wouldn't you do that if you were being called fat? That doesn't make sense to me.

    I don't really know if this is an eating disorder, because my doctor is also questioning why I'm like this.

    It's like, when I start to vomit--- I never stop. I mean never. everything I eat and drink after that I vomit. I have to be admitted to the hospital and get rehydrated through IV. I've been hospitalised every month because of this.

    And the food I'm eating is not the cause, maybe it's just my stomach.
    My doctor even thought that I was becoming bullimic.
    Btw, I'm skinny :XD

    I am bulimic and it just isn't because I want to be skinny.
    That is a thing that is widely believed, but it's misunderstood.

    I'm not anorexic, or pro-ana, or bulimic. but I count my calories every day just to make sure i'm not anywhere near 1000 calories, and if it is, I HAVE to work it off or I end up beating myself up over it.

    Is that even an eating disorder? :shifty

    ^ Eating below 1000-1400 calories depending on your size, gender and metabolism is unhealthy. I don't think your attitude towards calorie consumption and working out is healthy, and may be the beginning of an eating disorder. You might want to consider seeing a doctor.

    Obsession with food can develop into something worse... it is technically disordered eating. I'm the same way, but I don't eat under 1000 calories a day.

    You might think this is weird... but, I have severe emetophobia - the fear of vomiting, vomit itself, others vomiting... yeah. - and my anxiety with it is always worse at night, so I don't like to have a full stomach when I'm trying to sleep, in fear that I'll wake up in the middle of the night and throw up.

    Therefore, I try not to eat past 7, so I can have all my food digested by atleast 10:30ish. I mean, if dinner isn't ready by then, I skip it without hesitation. And ever since this whole problem has hit this stage, I've been eating way less in general.
    ... Is this an eating disorder?... Just curious. :shifty

    ^I don't think it's an eating disorder, because you don't seem to have a fixation with the food as such, but rather a fixation on a physical reaction like vomiting. It sounds like it's just part of your vomiting fear.

    I think it would be considered an eating disorder eventually if it gets out of hand.

    I used to have the same problem. My anxiety about vomiting got really bad and I would only eat if I was at home. I lost weight because when I was at school or my father's I wouldn't eat because I was so afraid I would vomit. I actually lost weight a lot of weight at one point.

    It's better now though. :cute:

    Yeah, that's what I figured.
    Chain Me Free:
    Yeah... I guess I'll know, if it gets worse.

    Weird, I've never met someone else who had anxiety over it..
    I'm glad you got over it, though. :) [/offtopic]

    I Know it's stupid;
    But at most times I WISH I had an eating disorder.
    Like Anorexia.
    Maybe then I could have some control over my weight.

    Don't ever wish you had that. Eating disorders are hell, and it's just not about "controling weight"

    You should probably research a little about anorexia before making comments like that... I'm not being rude or anything, but often it's misunderstood. At first it might seem like a way to control your weight, but anorexia actually controls you. It's more than just an obsession, it's like a psychological disorder.

    Control your weight the healthy way. Get plenty of exercise and cut out fast food and junk food, including soda. Eat the right portions. Anorexia isn't healthy and it will do your body more harm than good.

    I think quite a lot of people look at anorexia and go "oh, I wouldn't mind some of that", but only in the tiniest ways... such as, the willpower not to eat cake all the bloody time, or to abstain from chocolate.

    No one wants an actual disorder, however... I don't think.

    Yeah, I think that's how it is for most people and then I guess it just gets out of control. It controls them.

    I used to make myself throw up.
    It wasn't bulimia, I didn't binge eat, and I have stopped.
    Now I just find food repulsive, even if I am hungry.

    I have one of those binge/starve myself disorder problems as well.
    I use to do it once a week (as in binge) and the next day I would feel so sick. I was OBSESSED with the food I took in each day and I was really underweight and I looked so boney, but I didn't notice. Also, my hair was pretty much fried because I barely took in any nutrients. That was last summer, tho.

    Now, this summer; I eat more on days I don't binge, and I have gained weight since the time I was really skinny. I'm not too overweight now, but I'm very athletic looking because I run for almost 2 hours a day and I do exercise videos. I've become a Vegan and now all I eat is cereal, fruits, and veggies. I really don't know how to eat - I forgot how to eat regularly back when I was in grade 8.

    Now... I don't know. I still don't like my body and I want to be smaller, and I'm always scared to go see friends after a long period of not seeing each other (like 3 weeks without seeing each other), cos I always think that they're thinking that I got even chunkier.

    Ugh, I wish I could control how I thought about myself, but... I don't know.

    Yeah, these things really kill your self-esteem. :(
