I have an eating disorder, but it's not anorexia or bulemia.

Mine is that whenever I get severely depressed, I don't eat. I used to eat three to four times a day, now I only eat twice. When I was going through my depression stage, I would eat once a day and other days not at all. Since then, I've never gotten back to a 'normal' daily eating diet.

Even since 'recovering' (ha!) I still catch myself doing that...when I'm going through a depressed or anxious stage I don't eat at all, until I feel so sick that I can't cope with staying awake any more. It's weird cause I KNOW I'm doing it, cause I can't seem to motivate myself NOT to do it.

well, since i couldn't really vote on two, i voted that someone i know has an eating disorder... actually, three people.

my best friend,bullemic
an old friend from highschool,anorexic
and my best friend's sister,anorexic

even suckier, i try to keep myself slightly chubby because of the fact. growing up with them, back before i put a little weight on, they used to tell me all the time ,"i'm so jelous of how thin you are, i wish i looked like you...". in some weird way, i felt like it was my fault. i eat too much, which is my disorder. i don't want to be that uber skinny girl, i don't like it, and when people look at me, i want them to see that pudge can be hot. not too much, of course, but enough to let people know that you're healty and that you eat.

i dunno, sort of a sensitive subject for me.

That's the weird thing about eating disorders...when someone you know has one, it's impossible not to feel kind of responsible even though you aren't at all. :hug:

I'm in therapy...

it's not that I don't WANT to eat it's just I can't!!

I eat something I feel sick after the third bite and if I continue eating I have to throw up without doing anything!!
It's something mental that my body (or my inner self) doesn't want me to eat...I dunno what it is but it sucks...

my freinds support me so nice, they try to give me all sorts of food and try to give me treats but I just feel sick or puke...

It's a hard thing...
