(this topic might contain triggering content, in depth descriptions of disordered behavior)



hi mpa.


i'm super confused because some days i'll binge because i see myself as too thin, and then sometimes i won't eat at all ?? this has been going on for three years and i'm just really scared because i don't knpow what's going on. my perception of myself fluctuates so wildly that i never know what it'll be tomorrow. i wish i knew what's happening to me.


sorry if this is in the wrong topic, i'm new.

It sounds like body dysmorphia to me.

no one here can diagnose you, I suggest seeing a doctor if you want to be sure about it.

I think this is pretty common, actually. It's the reason there's the category of OSFED--basically a catch all for disordered behaviors that don't fit within the other categories. If you're concerned, and you wish you could stop, it's time to get help. Any decent therapist versed in eating disorders will recognize what you're going through and be able to help. 🙂

You may have an eating disorder, or you may not. 


Either way, if your actions around food are interfering with your life, or if they are making you miserable, and you are unable to change it on your own, seeing a therapist would be a good idea. Just know that you may have to see multiple people before you find one that works for you.
