Part 1



--How I found my way here:lj surfing =P

--Questions/comments/concerns:I've been lurking here a little while, and I am very relieved to see a community with actual health facts. As a nursing student and a medicine dork, talk about negative calories and health beneficial fasting makes me sick.

Part 2 (disordered members only)

--ED:recovering from anorexia and bulimia

--Diagnosed/Self-diagnosed?:diagnosed.. at the moment, I am not quite sure where I stand. I am by no means fully recovered, but I am also no longer actively eating disordered (usually).
