Is it an Eating disorder? - December 25th 2010, 10:04 AM

I'm not sure if this is an eating disorder, but i rlly want to know.
I do think i'm fat and ugly so throughout the day i hardly eat, and if i eat i feel guilty after and after i eat i also exercise too much.I have also vomited the food on purpose

"Eating disorder" is very broad. Not eating much all day is called restriction, and people who live a lifestyle that is commanded by restriction have anorexia nervosa. Purposely vomiting or otherwise "getting rid" of food is called purging, and people who live a lifestyle that is commanded by binging (eating large portions of food in a short period of time) and purging have bulimia nervosa. It sounds like you definitely have a bad relationship with food and your body, and though I cannot diagnose you, I would highly recommend looking into treatment.

Yes, it sounds like an eating disorder. Talk to your parents, and they will do what's best for you.
It may sound scary, but trust me; you WILL be glad you did it in the end.
