Eating disorders developing later in life.

This is something i have been contemplating for a while now.

I have read previously, that bulimia is the most common eating disorder found in women in thier twenties. My bulimic behaviours reared thier ugly heads when i was 23, although i tampered with it when i was 15, and binge ate for the years after. I am now 25, ed-nos and have never had an anorexic bmi.

1) Have any of you developed your eating disorder later than your teenage years?

The below article seems to explain that older women develop an e/d because of anxiety, stress and mood problems. It states younger women develop one due to body image/weight issues.

2) In general, how do you feel about this?

There is also a paragraph about the illness re-occuring in later years.
