Part 1

--Age: 19

--Gender: F

--How I found my way here: I've known about the communtiy for a while, via members of anorexicbones, people on my friends list, and more recently through members of daily_intake.

--Questions/comments/concerns: I love the idea of a community that does not condone ED-ignorance! I hope I've filled out the application properly.

Part 2

--ED: ED-NOS

--Diagnosed/Self-diagnosed

--Questionnaire:

Anorexia Nervosa

[1a] Is your bmi less than 17.5? Yes
[1b] If your bmi is over 17.5, have you been medically diagnosed with anorexia nervosa at your current weight? N/A
[2] Are you terrified of gaining weight or getting fat? Yes
[3] Does your weight/size/shape influence how you feel about yourself? Yes
[4] Have you missed your period for the past three months? Yes

[5a] Restricting type - do you regularly restrict without binging or purging? I have periods of restriction and periods of Binges.
[5b] Binge/purging type - do you regularly binge or purge or both? See above & below.

"Bulimirexia"

[[Remember that bulimirexia is not an official term and should be diagnostically referred to as Anorexia -Binge/Purging type]]

[1] Is your bmi less than 17.5? Yes
[2] Are you terrified of gaining weight or getting fat? Yes
[3] Does your weight/size/shape influence how you feel about yourself? Yes
[4] Have you missed your period for the past three months? Yes
[5] Do you eat more food in a binge than most people would eat in the same amount of time? No, but I'm smaller than most people, so if you were to compare my intake during a binge to the intake of someone my size who didnt have disordered eating, then yes it would be more than they would eat in the same amount of time.
[6] Do you lose control during the binge episode? Yes
[7] Have you binged and compensated (purge/lax/fast/excessive exercise) at least twice a week, every week for three months? No, not that often.

I dont entirely fit the criteria for Anorexia -Binge/Purging type, so i would classify myself as ED-NOS
