for about a year i’ve been conscious of my weight and have purged after meals. sometimes i go a week without purging and sometimes i purge daily. i went to my gp some months ago after my mum found out and they asked me to fill in a form but i heard no more about it. does this mean that they don’t think my case is anything abnormal? my mum thought it was stress related as i was failing most of my a levels and my best friend had been moved to a psych ward. physically it hasn’t made me lose that much weight and i don’t binge eat and lose control of eating beforehand like a bulimic. do i have an eating disorder or is weight just a thing that everyone worries about in their teens? i’ve seen posts on instagram about how just over-doing a diet doesn’t mean you have an eating disorder so i wondered if going to the gp was a bit extreme?

Going to the GP was not extreme. Are you still doing this? If so, maybe you need to chase up your GP.

It's not extreme, I suggest you follow up with your GP because your behaviours are not normal.

Going to the doctor wasn't extreme. You need to get help to stop this behaviour. However, unfortunately, Covid has caused many other important things to be delayed & it sounds as though you may have seen your GP just at the start of this. You should definitely chase it up to see what's going on.

Purging is unhealthy behaviour and doing it would indicate that you have an eating disorder.

(It is really bad for your health as well! If you don't sort the issue out, you can suffer lasting damage from it)
