Part 1

--Age: 18

--Gender: Female

--How I found my way here:
I saw a link at ed_medfacts.

i've been looking for a site or community with medical information, it's so hard to find on the web, because most info is either "pro-ana" or about recovery. not keeping yourself alive while you're still dealing with the disorder. very cool that you guys have this community, i'm excited.

Part 2 (disordered members only)

--ED: unsure. probably ED-NOS

self-diagnosed. though i'm hesitant to even consider myself ED-NOS, since the userinfo seemed very strict as to self-diagnosis.
can i just say i'm really messed up about food? lol.

I'm not sure. I consider myself ED-NOS, but I don't want to offend or upset anyone by saying such, and then finding out that I only meet 4/5 of the criteria, or whatever, so maybe i'll go with "i prefer not to diagnose"
i fast/purge on occasion, mostly restrict. weigh myself obsessively. i have what i call "binges" but are probably not big enough to qualify as such.
i've been diagnosed with BDD (body dysmorphic disorder) by my psychiatrist, if that helps any, lol.

i apologize in advance if this is a little scatterbrained, i'm really tired, i guess.
