ED: anorexia athletica (yes its real, just not commonly identified)

Diagnosed/Self-diagnosed?: diagnosed

My biggest pet peeve about ED communities: Being so picky about the ED criteria

How I found my way here: a post in another community

I was diagnosed with anorexia in the fall. My weight was about 108 at the time, still not the ana standard. I hadn't had my period for 2 years and have gained this weight because I was placed on birth control (because I have osteopenia in my back...a precursor to osteoporosis). My BMI never really matched the criteria because it is not accurate for athletes, we have more muscle then fat thereby weighing more with minimal the time my body fat % was 9%, yet I had a BMI of 19. I restrict like mad and exercise compulsively.

I love this community and am so happy you all are so understanding of EVERY kind of ED, not just ana or mia.
