I have no idea why it is different for the two…

ED: Bulimia is definitely the main one, as I fit all the criteria and binge/purge regularly. When I am not bingeing I am restricting hard, and I haven’t had a period in a couple of months.. So maybe I have anorexic tendencies?

Diagnosed/Self-diagnosed?: Diagnosed with bulimia by my doctor about six years ago. Since then I have got better and then got worse again.

My biggest pet peeve about ED communities:
1) The obligatory “ew, gross” after their Current Weight when people post their stats.
Most people who have an ed are not happy with their weight, it gets really boring to see the same thing over and over again

2) When people post photos of themselves with a caption under every one saying “I look really gross and fat in this photo” or “Look at how big my thighs are”.
I think that if they were really that disgusted with the way they look, they wouldn’t post photos, and I can’t help but think they are fishing for compliments.
I’m sorry if this sounds harsh, do let me know if you don’t agree with me..

How I found my way here: Some-one posted about this community in ana_in_college

Questions/comments/concerns: Right now, I have none :-)
