ED-NOS and I'd say this is applicable:
"Engaging in several different patterns of behavior, beyond normal dieting or normal insecurities about body image"

and I shall answer both Anorexia and Bulimia Nervosa questionnaires.

Anorexia Nervosa

[1a] Is your bmi less than 17.5? no
[1b] If your bmi is over 17.5, have you been medically diagnosed with anorexia nervosa at your current weight? nope.
[2] Are you terrified of gaining weight or getting fat? yes yes! :/ i have these dreams where i gain 100's of lb's over night >.<~ they scare the hell out of me.
[3] Does your weight/size/shape influence how you feel about yourself? yes. i feel fat all the time. so i feel like shit.
[4] Have you missed your period for the past three months? no. but i am on the pill, and they aren't normal (i've had one period that was 17 days long :o i didnt get a period after that for a while...)

[5a] Restricting type - do you regularly restrict without binging or purging? this is the confusing part yes. i often go several weeks with out binging/purging.
[5b] Binge/purging type - do you regularly binge or purge or both? and yes to this. i also have weeks where i will binge/purge at least twice a week.

Bulimia Nervosa

[1] Do you eat more food in a binge than most people would eat in the same amount of time? yes. yes.
[2] Do you lose control during the binge episode? some of the time yes. other times i go binge shopping and plan my binges :/
[3] Have you binged and compensated(purge/lax/fast/excessive exercise) at least twice a week, every week, for three months? eep. i can't say for sure, but i dont think so. (bad bad memory :s) for probably a month or two - i have b/p-ed more than twice a week and then other weeks i've haven't at all. XD
[4] Is your self-worth based on how you look or weigh? yes. everything revolves around my weight. :/

[5a] Purging type - does your compensation regularly involve vomiting, laxative abuse, diuretics, or enemas? vomiting, laxatives.
[5b] Non-purging type - does your compensation regularly involve excessive exercising or fasting? fasting and exercise - i wouldn't call it "excessive" exercise but just exercise.

i'm sorry if this seems so confusing X______x;;; my bad memory doesn't help, sometimes i can barely remember what i've done the past week so it makes it hard to remember anything else :s
