We got this from one of you:

I have EDNOS. I am anorexic. I am bulimic. I am neither. I am both. My body hates me and I hate my body. {end story}

What happens to some of us that we can wind up so sad so early?  Your thoughts?

    Eating disorders are so hard to beat. But I have, and even though somedays it’s still hard to struggle through and make it work, you can. There’s so much help out there for you once you’re ready to look for it. I don’t know you but I do know that you are so much more than simply how you look on the outside. I know it’s cliche, but it’s true. Just keep on fighting and find people who will support you and help you on a path to healing.

    My heart goes out to you dear one. I was overweight when I was a child, then around 14 I became hip on the world of bulimia. I then combined that with anorexia. A cycle than began. Binge,purge, tiny sip of water…purge,starve. Over and over. I remember my mother showing me a picture of the late Karen Carpenter, she threw down the magazine and said “Is this what you want to look like?” Defiantly I said,”No! I don’t ever want to be THAT skinny!” While deep inside I was yelling “yes!yes I do!” I was sick and my disorder was in control….funny I thought I was the one in control. I am now forty and Inborn going to lie, that skinny girl that I beat once, she whispers in my ear and tries to lure me back in….but alas I will continue to win this battle, although at times its a struggle I WILL NOT GIVE UP….and I pray you too will find that strength, my dear one.
    Peace and love
    Love and peace
