    My an is a coping mechanism for many reasons and I feel very disconnected emotionally to how underweight I am, even though intellectually i know. One thing that makes me really sad is going to bed hungry and getting excited for morning where I have 2 milky ish coffees and allow myself sugar...

  3. Bulimia Discussions
    I’m an underweight bulimic and I rarely ever actually binge. I was wondering if anyone else was like me and just regularly purge just on normal meals? I do binge but just after restricting for too long so yes I’m ana b/p but I wanna know if there’s anyone else like me who just kinda purgers...

    I'm going to be reassessed by the head psychiatrist of my Ed outpatient clinic today. I'm nervous as I think I've lost more weight, not through purposely trying, but my bmi has been so low recently (think there's a point where it just keeps dropping?) ...it has affected my thinking and I...

    So my long term partner who loves me and supports me said to me yesterday that 'he's resigned to me never recovering.' He thinks it's pointless going to my Ed therapist because I'm 'wasting her time' He did attend an appointment 2 weeks ago with me and it was quite emotional. I know how much my...

    Hi, I'm usually a low restriction ana but last 3 days I've been binging on peanut butter and chocolate spread then purging. Just had nearly half a jar of each and seemed to manage to get it all up, then watery stuff/acid and some spinach from hours ago. Does that mean it all came up?? I kept...

    Hi there, was wondering if anyone can relate. My bmi isn't great, I'm very underweight and I low restrict. I used to binge purge years ago and haven't for ages, but just recently started to binge a little (not huge amounts) and purge. Then I panic when I eat my usual stuff and sometimes get rid...

    I'd say it does. Despite being 5'1, IRL people tend to guess my height around 5'4-5'6 in flats, 5'6-5'10 in (2-6 inch) platforms. I also appear considerably taller than my mom, whom is the same height, only 35 lbs. heavier. My last bf was the first to guess correctly, but I later learned it was...

    Hi there! On Friday my partner came with me to my Ed appointment for the first time ever. (I have suffered anorexia on/off for about 13 years) I respect my therapist because she is extremely blunt yet compassionate, but so is my partner and with the 2 there supporting me and making me realise...

    Hello all, first post! :] I began restricting on July 14 and dropped from 100 lbs. to 93.8 lbs. in 1 week (undoubtedly water weight) consuming an average of 510 kcal (275-1065) with a sedentary tdee of around 1400, give or take. Since then, I've eaten an average of 610 kcal (0-1272), yet I've...

    Hi there..I'm wondering if anyone can relate to hoarding food? I understand if you do when you b/p...I used to do it for a different reason when I had this behaviour. I have low restriction an and I hoard things like peanut butter (I love pb!)..I occasionally have a little but recently I've...

    Hi there, so I know that my anorexia is so much deeper than how I look and clothes etc, however since reaching my lowest weight my style has changed. I used to love vintage dresses and vintage style clothes, frills and colours, unusual styles....totally loved dressing up all the time! Made me...

    I haven’t been weighed in two weeks so I don’t know how much I weigh but my last weigh-in was 49.4 kg and I’m 167 cm tall. I’m slightly underweight. I shown my brother my bare legs and hips and asked him if he thinks my body looks curvy and he said yes. He also thinks I have thick thighs. I felt...

    Anyone have any idea why my resting heart rate is anywhere from 130-140 beats per minute while my blood pressure is only like 91/62. When I am doing a lot of physical activity, like at work, my heart rate will spike up to 160-170. The weird thing is that with a pulse that high, I would expect to...

    I can reach and feel the bottom of my own tailbone now-- not the end, but underneath the tailbone itself? I can feel the actual end of it. It causes me some pain whenever I'm sitting and something is pressing on it, and I'm worried really badly about it. I had a pilonidal cyst back in 2021...
