I am ED-NOS. Eating disorder - not otherwise specified. I don't meet the weight criteria for anorexia, but all the behaviours are there. I just messed up my metabolism so much that losing is very hard. But if you saw my food log ... you would think "anorexic". If you saw my pic, you would think "nothing wrong with her!".

I am kooky though. :hearts: That's on top of the ED and depression. Yay me!

Found this a little too late, but here I go. I struggle with a combintation of things. I mentally force myself not to eat, then eventually I will. I never get sick, at least not on purpose, but I do get sick. Sometimes I binge eat, other times, I starve. I think some of it has to do with the fact, since I'm unable to work, I gain weight quickly. I've been through the anorexia/bulimia part in my life, years ago. Now, since I can't bring myself to do that, I just do what I do now.

Hey,

I was bulimic for about 6 years, it pretty much ruled my life (freqent daily binge purge). Was underweight for a while and possibly considered anorexic, but is hard to feel that. Anyway, for the first time in as long as I can remember I am not bingeing or purging. (three episodes in three months vs many times daily). It's hard though, I look normal, I eat normally....yet feel as eating disordered in my brain as ever. I don't want to go back to the b/p because it was HELL. I was fiercly addicted, and took me moving round the world to break the addiction. I'm scared I'll go back...I don't feel "safe" yet. Plus am starting to count calories and obsess again. This is bad :hearts: but now I have started is hard to relax again over food....I just wish I didn't think about food/weight so much. I wish I could think about other stuff instead.

i find that it is difficult to think about other things when you are very depressed. i use my bulimia as a way to deal with depression and become obsessed with something other than suicide and the inability to concentrate on other things

I have bulimia....I have no self control when it comes to food it seems....So, when I eat it... I feel really bad....Then I go and get rid of it before my body has time to digest it....I have been stuggling fo a while now.... :bump:

(((((((((((((((((dg)))))))))))))))))))

its hard to say with my eating, it skips around alot.

not eating, then binge eating, then not eating hardly any thing, then binging n purging. i really dont no.... :hearts:

I'm obese and struggle with overeating. It started after I had my child thirteen years ago, then got dramatically worse when I took antedepressants plus an antipsychotic. I hate the way my body looks - it's embarrassing every day - but when I get angry, nervous, stressed or depressed, I eat. I'm currently seeing a psychologist to see if its possible to break this cycle.

Hi, Newbies! I'm new to this thread but, I found the DF in October. I have probably been in denial but, I know I'm an emotional eater. I've never binged or purged, but I sure do eat too many sweets! I am overwieght, on AD's and really struggling to exercise and "eat right."

I do hate being the weight I am but, it's not a high priority compared to my other depression symptoms. It is something I want to work on--this being the new year and all! :hearts:

i was bulemic for several years in my teens, intermittently as an adult but not in recent years. became a yo-yo dieter.

am a binge-eater, now am obese. wish i lived in an urban area with access to ED-specialists & programs. once asked my then-shrink to refer me to an ED program and he told me to go to Weight Watchers, the moron.

I was anorexic throughout highschool mostly because of depression. When I pulled out of the depression in college I also managed to pull out of anorexia for awhile. It is something I still struggle with, especially with my anxiety disorder (OCD). I also stick to "safe foods." I will go for months eating the same meal for lunch every day and dinner is the same too (but different then lunch). But at least I'm eating!! (:
