    Did you end up with hollow under eyes and nasolabial folds from the weight loss? I'm over my disorder now but I haven't returned to my normal weight yet, I'm wondering if these things will go away when I have more fat in my face?

    It goes away eventually, but you've got to eat the right healthy kinds of foods, like proteins and complex carbs. Basically look at the food wheel.

    Anything that doesn't come in the "bucket" portion and is green is your friend.

    I still have hollows under my eyes. I suspect I always will though I really hope not.

    gain weight, and it goes away.

    except when you go from anorexia to bulimia, you get lots of other problems..

    i hope you can recover... obviously, i cant.

    i want to kill myself. right now. so much.

    sorry, its just all this has really brought it home.
    im sorry,.
    seriously good luck though.

    Ever so slightly, I think. I don't think I look underweight but I think my bmi is low.

    You know what, I never knew that was why. I mean, I have the folds and the bags under my eyes all the time no matter how much I sleep but I never knew the two were linked.

    Although I was only a stone and a half underweight, I was really skinny but I wasn't get-put-in-hospital skinny. I mean, my doctor told me to gain and I had to be watched at every meal to make sure I ate it till I put the weight back on but... meh. Nice to know my issues with my face are my own fault
