--Questions/comments/concerns: I dont know if im doing this right =S I was diagnosed a long time ago and I havent been to the doctor in 2 years, so im not sure where i fit anymore. I included everything that applies, so hopefully someone else might be able to see it more clearly than i can.

‡ Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified

Please indicate which eating disorder criteria you DO have (not just "food issues"):

[X] binging (more than ~800 calories per sitting)
[X] purging (vomit, laxative, diuretic, enema) after binging
[X] purging (vomit, laxative, diuretic, enema) without binging
[X] excessively exercising after eating
[X] chewing and spitting
[_] obsession with "pure" food
[X] terror of gaining weight
[X] self-worth based on looks or weight
[X] I answered the question below

What do you feel is the difference between your attitudes/behaviors and those of someone who has normal insecurities about her body? My whole life revolves around finding ways to loose more weight. Everything i do is based on that...its all i ever think about :(.

*ive never done an lj-cut before so please dont boot me if it doesnt work =/
