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.

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.
