Part 1

Age: 19

Gender: Female

How I found my way here: Through general reading of journals

Questions/comments/concerns: I appreciate the way this commmunity is not tolerant of misdiagnosis or people who glamourise eating disorders, yet it does not become petty/uninspired as so many other such communities do. You seem to respect people as humans rather than interacting merely as people with illnesses.

Part 2 (disordered members only)

ED: Anorexia Nervosa

Diagnosed/Self-diagnosed?: Medically diagnosed


[1a] Is your bmi less than 17.5? Yes
[2] Are you terrified of gaining weight or getting fat? I'm rarely gripped with what I would define as terror, if so, it's usually very early morning or when I am exausted. I'd say I have a severe aversion to weight gain (and an obsession with running my hands over myself to feel how much I weigh, rather than focusing on numbers)
[3] Does your weight/size/shape influence how you feel about yourself? Yes. I'm trapped and frightened.
[4] Have you missed your period for the past three months? For 14 months.

[5b] Binge/purging type - do you regularly binge or purge or both? I don't binge. I do induce vomiting on occasions.
