I didn't mean to turn it into a battle, I really was just trying to point out that they are both some incomparable, they each have the ability to destroy people in their own way.

Honestly, I could go on but as Sassymummy said, there is no point turning this into a battle over who has it worst. It sucks having your weight commented on, no matter your size. It sucks trying to find clothes that flatter you no matter your size (like pp I have also had to resort to the girls section). It sucks when people comment on your eating habits. Society (and the media) sucks for making us believe that our size defines us. And I'm sure it sucks to have an eating disorder too.

At one point I was not eating and underweight. I've had people suggesting I was anorexic at that time, but I do not believe so. I believe my status at that time was pretty much the same as someone who eats excessively and thus becomes obese.
I did not have psychological issues about wanting to be thinner. (I thought a smaller body would be nice, but that would require a different bone structure. I was reasonably happy with my body given my bone structure, though thought I could do to put a bit of insulation on.)
My main reasons for lack of eating was:
* There didn't seem any point cooking for one person (myself) so when hungry I would have a glass of water instead.
* I would go a couple of weeks as above, then start to feel more hungry so put the effort in and cook and eat real meals for a week, then continue the cycle.
* At one point however, I didn't really get an urge to eat for about five weeks. Then I found myself struggling to try and open the door to the lecture theatre at university, and realised I needed to start eating again. When I tried to eat, I found my stomache had shrunk so I had to get back into it slowly.
Also, when I wasn't eating, it wasn't completely nothing, but fairly minimal - maybe three pieces of fruit a day.
There was never any drive to diet. It was the opposite, a lack of motivation to eat. Therefore I dont believe I sufferred anorexia at all.

They are both classed as psychological as it all reverts back to the mind and the behaviour content in how to discipline the 2 situations. Everything we do.say.act out is sourced from within the brain and from that hormones and the nerve system comes into play.
Everyone would think that the mouth and food is the main source of either gaining weight or not being about to eat but the brain controls our stomach it controls how the stomach acts and feels.
People will argue this topic saying if ur obese start exercising and eating properly or if ur anorexic ppl will say just eat but our minds are very complex and when the brain is set in a certain pattern it is hard to control and make a change. Mental illness plays a factor in some cases.
I dont think either of the two are accepted in main****** life there is always going to be someone you come across who will always have an opinion about obesity and anorexia and very much so that our society sees that being slim is definately the norm.
