Oh Hon, I'm so sorry, I feel your pain. By what you are telling us, I'd have to say yes you have an ED. It's not just the lack of eating, but the emotions you are connecting with it all and the language you use with others. Usually the first visible signs are the phrases people say to convince others and themselves they are fine. Things like, "Oh I'm not hungry, I just ate." If they aren't true, it can indicate a very real problem. I too hit puberty very early, but I was home schooled, so I wasn't teased, but I was forced to watch my friends get to eat anything they wanted without gaining while at 14, I was already hitting that point where every pound stuck. I began to hate my body and hate what food did to me. The pain is a very familiar companion to me and it is a huge red flag when you are trying to decide if you have a problem. When I realized how much pain I was living with, emotionally as well as physically, I knew I couldn't keep living like I was. The good news is that admitting you have a problem is a very big step. I'm not going to say it's the hardest part, that probably wouldn't be true, but it is a really big deal to admit you have an ED. Because when you know what's wrong, you gain the ability to do something about it. I would really recommend if you can to find counseling. I know that's not always an option so even if you don't, get an accountability partner. Someone who understands what is going on and who can emotionally support you and get on your case if you don't follow through with getting your three meals. It doesn't have to be your best friend, but someone you feel comfortable with, even someone on this site if that's easier than talking to someone at home. I know it's a hard thing to do but at some point you really need to talk to a doctor specifically about EDs. I hate to admit I've not yet had the courage to do so myself, but you should be aware, there are long lasting health issues that can occur with having an ED even if you don't have a problem right now, things can develop. I wish I could give you a big hug right now, because it sounds like you really need it and I know I don't know what you look like, but I can tell from your words that you are a beautiful person. Remember, you're not alone, please don't try to deal with this by yourself.

first off - welcome! Second HUGS! It sounds like you're having a difficult time and have been for awhile. ED's can be sooo confusing because so many ppl think of this simple cookie cutter way of what it is or isn't. We're hear for all the questions and rambles you need! You're not nuts - i think that you are right on with what's going on. again, HUGS!

It's hard for family to see you at a healthier weight because a lot of people look at ED victims as naturally thin. So I know it's hard to hear things about your weight but they don't realize they aren't helping. For almost three years family thought I was preg. when I visited.
