Eating Disorder are of the body AND MIND...right?

I'm slightllly confused..thought probably not. Back after I got food poisoning and became VERY sick, I lost a ton of weight and had an anorexic "weight." But by no means did I have an eating disorder. I didn't hate myself (back then), nor did I hate my body, want control, etc. I WANTED to eat..I just got REAL sick after I did, so I didn't (but by no means did I want to not eat or even think about my weight. I was SO HUNGRY!). But the doctors still said I was anorexic. Isn't this not true? Or am I completely off here? It's not like people who have cancer and lose a ton of weight and become an anorexic weight have anorexia. It's just that they're really sick from treatment or something (lame example, but you get the point, right?)


Edit: I mean ANOREXIA NERVOSA is what they said I had, when I didn't have any mind in it (ahh, let's not make sense...good job, cheesehead!)
But interesting about anorexia and anorexia nervosa...don't believe I knew that...
