Newbie looking for support :)

Hi everyone! I'm new to this site, and looking for support from others struggling with eating disorders. Here's a little bit about myself (if you are interested at all what so ever haha)
I have been struggling with both anorexia and bulimia for almost 5 years now and have tried recovery once before. I will admit however that my heart was not in it. I was 17 and mostly wanted to make my parents and doctor happy until I turned 18 and was able to move out. I did not ever really recover from my eating disorder at all, but I was able to put on weight and I guess "fake it".
This time around I am truly making an effort. This is not how I want to live. I am 20 years old now and am just getting back into school (I dropped out about 3 times already from my eating disorder) and I'm actually doing well in school! I do not want the heaviness of this disease on my shoulders anymore. I want the life I know I should be living at this point in my life.
I know this is going to be a struggle I will have many ups and downs, I just would like someone to be there for me through them and encourage me. I would be more than happy to do the same for any others who are sharing my struggle.
