I used to put it off as binge eating or comfort eating. I went through an illness when I was 11-12 that meant I physically couldn’t eat and when I was better my mother encouraged very unhealthy eating habits, “she’s too skinny, she can eat what she wants” sort of thing. She’s also not very good with portion control and is very fixated on body image. Fast forward eight years, I starve myself and binge eat, live at extremes. The thing is, this is okay, no one worries because I’m fat. When I lose weight, I get praise and that feels really good. I don’t starve myself so much anymore, I always try to eat at least something even if it’s ice cream or a cucumber and I have to limit the food I have in the house so I don’t eat thirty packets of crisps at once. Getting out of the house more and keeping occupied, having a routine and set meal times is also helpful for me but I’m still in the thick of it.

I have EDNOS which I have suffered from for 3 years now as a result of a trauma. I alternate between symptoms of BED and AN restrictive type.

I don’t have a eating disorder but Idk what my diagnosis would be. I really hate my body and everything about me like I turn of the light when looking at the mirror to hide any noticeable features. I look at myself eat sometimes at the mirror to see if I look bad. I also look at my body a lot and want to make so many changes as well

I'm so sorry for all of you going through this. I suffered from anorexia binge/ purge sub-type and it was awful. I have seen some of you saying you don't think you have an eating disorder- neither did I, not really.
I know that when you're going through it, it feels like it will never end and it continues to get worse and destroy everything, from your mental health to you relationships etc. but i promise you there is a way out. Please reach out and get professional help, even if you don't feel ready. Life without an eating disorder is so much better than I ever could have anticipated. It took a long time and even now I have to be careful not to slip into old habits but just being able to live without this constant fear and guilt consuming you is incredible. I have a few tips that might help you if anyone wants them.
I remember hearing this quote that really resonated with me: "Recovery may seem scary, but how much worse would it be to spend the rest of your life in the wrath of an eating disorder?"
Please seek help and save the world the huge tragedy of losing someone without cause. Every life is important, including you.
