First of all, I hope I've understood everything alright and this post is allowed to be here. If not, please let me know and I'll remove it, or please message me privately - I could really use some help.
The thing is, I've never been sure as to whether my issue is an eating disorder, or disordered eating. For the longest time, I thought that it might just be EDNOS, but looking through some of the memories of this journal, I'm beginning to second guess that. This isn't something I'm at all comfortable discussing with my family doctor - or anyone around me actually - so I'm hoping someone here will be able give me a hand.
What I thought might be EDNOS, I'm now starting to think could be BED. I don't think it could be 'extreme' enough to be bulimia nervosa, but...for all I know, that's denial and pride talking. I'll try to summarize things as best I can without taking up too much time of the person kind enough to take the time to read all this...
Thank you very much, whomever you may be, if you actually got through reading all that ^////^;;
Hi guys I'm getting a blood test tomorrow and I heard I should fast for 12 HOURS before so that there is no fat in the blood system. This might sound stupid but is binging and purging okay? If I purge it all out and there isn't any food in my "system"? How about chewing and spitting since I won't swallow anything? I realize my question is very dumb but I appreciate a reply. Thanks..
EDIT: I got the results this morning. Apparently my blood is fine not much to worry about but he did mention that I have a very low white blood cell count. He spoke to my mum I wasn't there so I couldn't ask questions. Google is just freaking me out because it diagnoses me with all these horrible diseases so I don't want to google anymore lol. Is it normal to have low WBC? And is it in any way related to my ED?
