    Default Have you ever struggle with an eating disorder? POLL

    After watching something intresting on ABC, it amazes me how common eating/body image issues are amongst women It's so awful.

    Poll is mutiple choice. I know there are others apart from the well known ones but I don't know all the names so I am putting an 'other' option.

    I am not sure if you would call mine an eating disorder (maybe someone here can tell me!)
    But from around age 13-15 I thought I was a lot bigger than I was (looking back on photos I was very skinny. )
    I used to;
    - not eat all day and tell my mum I was too full for dinner (tell her I had a big lunch)
    - same days above and than I would eat heaps and sometimes try to vomit (but i never could)
    - I would 'pretend' to eat while my mum was in the other room by making cutlery noise and dirty a bowl with a drop of icecream
    - went to the doctors for swollen glands and he asked if i was eating and I said yes.
    - once I took prescription diet pills that a friend got from her gp

    For some unknown reason the above eased off once I turned 16/17. It got much better when I met now Dh (I was 17 1/2).
    I am now 32 years old.

    i'd say that you were at the least borderline anorexic. that is usually how it begins and i'm so glad that the urge passed for you or else you definately would have slipped into it.

    Comfort eating from the age of ten that falls under the definition of binge eating disorder. I am 40 kg's overweight as a result.
