Default Re: Anorexia and BDD

I had anorexia in college. I still haven't 100% gotten over the stupid ED thinking. Some times are worse than others. I recently had to have emergency surgery for a perforated ulcer, and that caused me to lose a lot of weight. Before that, I was actually a normal weight for my height, low but normal. Now my BMI is back to an anorexic BMI and part of me is happy about it. I don't know. I hated my body from about 8th grade up and then got the anorexia in college, recovered from it, did OK a bit, but have had my ups and downs. I wish scales had never been invented.

IDK, I think BDD and eating disorders pretty much go hand in hand.
