Hello blueroses89,

Eating disorders are no ones fault;they just seem to present themselves in response to emotional discomfort.

Something internally refuses to shut off the compulsion.

Body dysmorphia may play a part here also.

Might I suggest seeing a nutritionist.

I've been plagued with bulimia and detest that it's a coping mechanism.
It's interesting how an eating disorder can negatively effect one's life in several different ways.

Respectfully
Phoenix
