I apologize if this has been posted before, but a recent post made me think of this. I know that for me personally the lying in general didn't start until my ED and progressed from there. I started lying, stealing, self-injury, and the urge to do drugs and drink after my ED began. Maybe it was age, maybe depression, but I'm not sure. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced more things beginning as their ED did. Maybe it's because the ED causes depression from chemical imbalances (starving or binge/purge) and causes more self-destructive habbits in general or it's more directly related to the eating disorder.
Has anyone started or seen an increase in the following after your ED had begun: lying, stealing, drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, or self-injury
