‡ Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified
Please indicate which eating disorder criteria you DO have (not just "food issues"):
[_] binging (more than ~800 calories per sitting)
[_] purging (vomit, laxative, diuretic, enema) after binging
[x] purging (vomit, laxative, diuretic, enema) without binging
[_] excessively exercising after eating
[_] chewing and spitting

[_] 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?
I'm fairly certain that most people with normal insecurites about their bodies don't engage in daily purging. Eating anything - even fresh foods, vegetables, etc. - makes me feel disgusting and horrible, as well as guilty.
