Don't know what to think - January 12th 2011, 11:12 AM

Here's the deal (this might be a bit lengthy but I could really use outside opinions). At 13 I started bulimia. That lasted about 4 months before I switched to anorexia. I was really obsessed with it. I was always looking at thinspo and thinking of ways to keep my secret. Always weighing myself... That lasted another 4 months, until a school trip to France where I realized it'd be impossible to "fast" without anyone knowing, especially since people were getting really suspicious. So I stopped. Just chose to stop right away. Last year I'd eat a meal a day and only purge on occasion. Over this past summer I'd go days without eating not because of a disorder but because I was stressing myself sick (literally I'd get so stressed I'd puke). This year, although I hate how I look, I thought I was normal and had no eating disorder. But I barely eat. Like an apple in a day. I don't think about not eating or hiding it or starving myself. I'm just not hungry. Whenever people tell me to eat something I say no. Even if I know I should. I don't know what to think. I'm not thinking in the same way I did when anorexic, but I'm doing all the same things and I don't know why

it may be that you've just gotten into a bad habit of not eating and your bodies just gone so used to it aswell. have you tried speaking to your doctor. you could do with making a meal plan to ease you back into eating food again

I don't wanna. I'm happy with how I'm eating or well not eating. I do wanna lose weight. Not that I'm obsessed with it but I wouldn't wanna gain weight. I don't think about enough to think I've got an ED though. I don't try to hide it and I wouldn't purposely do something dangerous. I dunno

your symptoms may be showing signs of an eating disorder. i think that the amount your eating is insufficient, and the fact that you don't think there's anything wrong with that, shows there's something wrong. You should just talk about it to someone like your doctor and discuss a healthy way to lose weight. eating very little will probably lead to not eating at all so its best to stop it before it starts..x
