Vent/asking for your opinion. I’m not sure if I’m valid or actually have an eating disorder. I’ve taken tests and I’m still not sure. I was thinking of anorexia but I don’t completely fall under it.. so yea I’ll give you the reasons or symptoms that concern me or make me believe something is going on. 1- I’m obsessed with my weight I am constantly thinking about it. I always try to sit and stand in ways that make it so I don’t have to see my body. I always look in the mirror in disgust at my body and I dislike showers because I have to see my body. 2-I have gone on streaks of not eating anything with the goal in mind to loose weight. I will go on that streak until I feel weak and become very dizzy and nauseous. 3-eating makes me feel guilty and disgusting 4-I have tried to make myself barf with the goal in mind of getting rid of calories I have eaten. 5-irregular menstruation(i don’t know if that is related) 6-I try to avoid things with calories 80 or more 7-I hate people seeing me eat 8-I check my weight whenever I can and if it is over a certain point I stop eating and get super stressed Now here are things that make me unsure 1-I am not super skinny 2-I cannot get myself to throw up 3-I go on eating sprees every once in a while 4- I have pica(another eating disorder) 5-I used to be chubby 6-I think some bigger bodied people look pretty as bigger bodied 7-My favorite food is a type of cake And more (so if there is anything you are wondering then ask me) So overall I’m not sure what I have and I would like it if somebody would help me figure it out. Thank you for reading this 😊

      It could be anorexia. I feel like these may be swings of bad thoughts maybe? Like one minute you dont care and the next you do? Do they correlate with anxiety or hardships?

        @Lucas.exe I feel like I always kinda care.I also think maybe dysphoria might have a role in it but I’m not sure. I’m also not sure about anxiety but that could be it. I don’t believe hardships are a key role in it either. Sorry if I’m confusing😅

          @XxAshxX or for me I dont like eating because I'm to afraid of not having food to eat. Either way I think you know its not healthy...

          @XxAshxX mental health is confusing sometimes, its okay. I'm sorry for assuming anything. Do you have any other mental health issues? The first thing I think of is maybe bipolar disorder. Mania could be the eating whatever, and the depression side could be that wanting to loose weight side. Or maybe one side of your brain wants to loose weight but the other side kicks in the survival instincts. So maybe it is anorexia but not fully if that makes sense.
