My biggest pet peeve about ED communities: Rude people who just tear people down if they don't fit into their certain mold of what someone with an eating disorder should be or act. There are so many different aspects to having disordered eating...I don't know how to articulate this better, sorry. And people who post in communities to find a quick fix to losing a few lbs and act as though an eating disorder is just a trend to lose weight and that they can start and stop whenever they want to.

How I found my way here: Another community that I was browsing.

Questions/comments/concerns: I'm sorry about not posting my application when I first joined. I've been dealing with disordered eating since I was 13, cycling between extreme restricting, bulimic tendencies and coe. I've always been extremely hesitant about talking about it, and usually by habit just lurk to find support in knowing that I'm not alone, but hopefully I'll be able to contribute somehow to some of the discussions here.
