Do I have an eating disorder?!?!? - September 3rd 2010, 07:30 AM

I know this may sound weird but I think I have an eating disorder, like I eat in the day once in awhile like Skip breakfast have am apple at lunch, then a small dinner with water or something/? I find I chew on my tongue a lot cause then I can't tell if I'm hungry or not. I also find that I don't like eating infront of people and if I can get out of it i do. I also excersie a lot I play competitve softball and I run on the days I don't and do core every night..

Do you think I have an eating disorder?

If I do, what can I do to get help. Do I go to my doctor or can I get help on my own? Any advice would help.

Its hard to tell as an eating disorder isnt really diagnosed based on what you eat and how much exercise you do, but the feelings around it. The fact that you dont like eating in front of people is certainly a sign of disordered eating. You should try and talk to maybe your parents or a good friend about how you feel, then you can get help now, as it is a lot easier to fix earlier on.

We cannot diagnose you with anything, as we are not medical professionals. Talking to your doctor, a school counselor, or even your parents would be a good idea. Any of those three should be able to help you, and to help you get help. Your eating behaviours aren't really normal, but that doesn't mean you have an eating disorder, it also doesn't mean you don't. Is there a reason you do those things? It might be worth thinking about, thinking about why you do it.

Stay strong, and feel free to pm me anytime.

It sounds like you may have an issue with food, but we can't really tell you much else. I would advise that you speak to a doctor about this, just tell them your concerns and see how they respond to that.

Take care.

I think everyone's given you some great insight and advice. Since at this point, you've received your answer (that we can't diagnose you with an ED or not, and you need to see a doctor or other professional) I'm going to go ahead and close this post. If you would like it reopened or disagree, just send me a PM!
