Do your friends know about your past/or current struggle?
Are they supportive if they do?
Are there some friends you talk to about it (know) and others that don't?
Do more online friends-acquaintanceships know / vs. IRL?

Are they supportive if they do?There's nothing to soupport
Are there some friends you talk to about it (know) and others that don't? No, I don't talk about it. Some people ignore or feel dieting is an eating disorder.
Do more online friends-acquaintanceships know / vs. IRL? on-line is the only place that I talk about it.

Most of my friends past and current know I have struggled with it. Although current ones have no clue to the severity, past ones were there.

All of the people in my life are either supportive or apathetic (in a good way). Thankfully I don't have anyone who doesn't understand or says stupid things.

I don't much talk about it anymore, although here and there it will come up. More with older friends, since they remember and will sometimes mention how things were back then. But I don't bring it up too often with newer friends. My mom and I sometimes talk about it, since it seems like a different life. But it is always in a positive way.

I don't hide it from anyone, so I guess it is even. I mean, I don't tell the grocery store checker...but my friends and relatives all know about it.

Super big thanks to Jaidynsmum for my cool siggy!

I kept it a "secret" for a while. It is the worst thing I could have done. Although, everyone knew. I thought they did not know, I thought that I did not look sick, my habits were a secret, etc. But, they all knew. Some of my closest friends were instrumental in my going IP last summer, helping with my daughter, and checking in on me now. I do not share with those I am not closest with. But I have found that it is nice to have some friends know now. They do not always understand. But I need accountability.
