: Anorexics see themselves as fat whether or not they are. Many of them still starve themselves when very thin, seeing "fat" on their bodies. They mistake ordinary muscle and body tissue for "fat".
: No one has to be an expert to post here. This is not a professional advice forum...it is for sharing personal experience.
WHAT!?!?!?! Oh my. THanks for the info, but I think over 5years of intense and exclusive research on eating disorders, does not make me a expert/doctor at all. HOWEVER, You're letting people post things here that don't belong and could be dangerous and very upsetting/harmful to others. I've found more "how to's" on this board than any other "help" board on the web. Not only have I researched these dieseases, but I have both - anorexia and bulimia. I have more problems than I care to share, but I can easily tell which girls are in real need, and which are looking for tips. This is so sad to even have eating disorders, and having tips on top of that...(sighs) it's depressing.
