    My eating disorder is largely oriented around OCD and I was wondering if anyone else experiences this. (Food in my stomach = bad luck something bad will happen, having to purge and have food come up 12 times while counting to 5, 4 then 3, etc). I also had a psychotic episode a while back where I...
