I feel quite stupid for asking this, but I hope there is no such thing as a stupid question. Forgive me my ignorance, I am here to be educated, I am trying.

I would say that I spend a lot of my time restricting or fasting. However, about once a month I will binge. I don't purge, but I go straight back to restricting or fasting as compensation, and then continue this until the next binge. When I first developed problems with eating, when I was about 11, I would 'skip meals' or 'stick my fingers down my throat', depending on whichever one I thought I could get away with. And while I preferred 'skipping meals', in the end it didn't really matter.

I suppose what I am trying to ask is, what is wrong with me? Am I a bulimic because I binge and then compensate, or am I anorexic because I restrict and don't binge often enough to be bulimic?

My BMI is below 17.5 but I do not have amenorrhea, so I know that technically I am ED-NOS, but I am more asking what category my behavior fits into.

I know a lot of what I have said in this entry has been incorrect terminology kind of thing, and any comments on that would be appreciated too.

Thank you =)
