How do you know if it's an eating disorder? I'm 40 yrs old, and have started purging 1-2x day the past 6 weeks. I've lost 13# in that time, but I'm not bingeing, just eating less than I had. Any thoughts?


mom...I suggest that you seek

mom...I suggest that you seek some professional help, including some medical tests, and a therapist, to help you understand what is driving this new behavior. It does sound as if you have developed an eating disorder, and the sooner you get help, the better your chances are of complete recovery. Please don't wait. This is a serious problem. Take care!
