trauma and eating disorders

This is probably not the best place to post this but I could use advice and help. I guess to make it a question I could ask, Does anyone have any trauma issues that relate to their ED? How did they overcome them? Do you think children should ever be allowed to make medical decisions? This question is relevant after you read my post.

Not feeling like you were a "real" bulimic

Hello I was wondering if anyone ever had the same thoughts as I have. I was bulimic from the time I was in seventh grade until my junior year of high school. When I look back on those years it is as if they are a daze and everything has blended into something I only sort of remember as a very distant past in a life that I was merely coasting through and not actually existing in.
Though I was horribly horribly ill, I never can convince myself of that. I never really felt like I was a "real" bulimic although I was. I think this may have had something to do with the fact that I never saw myself as thin and my weight changed so drastically month to month.
Has anyone else had this similar feeling? Like you were never the real deal? I know it's a sick thing to want tobe able to acknowledge, but it's just weird to me.
