I never went to see a therapist although depressions hit me hard especially in my teens and mid-twenties. I guess compensating wih alcohol, binge eating and parties kind of helped me go through depressive stages. After some mental breakdowns I realized how great my defense mechanisms worked. I couldn't even see my bad eating habits like eating 3 pizza magharita within an hour, a whole package of cereals after and passing out. not leaving my appartment for days was just part of my personality. That's what I thought at least. Mostly it was due to emotional stess.
I started to self-diagnose myself by reading books and articles.
I've never been bigger than 180 lbs (6'0) and liked to go to the gym so no one ever suspected I had some issues with eating moderatly. I had to realize it on my own. Somehow i'm fine with it. :)

6'0 ~ 158 lbs 
How low can I go?

I also have no diagnosis, but my eating habits are disordered. I sometimes feel like it's not bad enough so I wouldn't get diagnosed even if I saw someone. (Idk if that's true or not, but I feel that way anyways.) So I also self diagnose !

I’m the same. I’ve never been diagnosed but my reasons for not wanting to get diagnosed is that then I’ll be forced to get help and maybe I’ll gain weight

not diagnosed with anything and don't want to be. i'd rather no one knows and it helps me pretend sometimes that there's nothing actually wrong with me.

never been diagnosed, but I suspect it would be EDNOS/OFSED because my disordered eating patterns change so much from one week to the next. some weeks I restrict or C/S or over-exercise or hyper-focus on eating only healthy clean foods, some weeks I b/p, some I fast, occasionally it kind of goes back to normal/high-restriction for a short while. it feels like i have some of the compulsions of every eating disorder, but the end goal is always to control my calorie-intake in one way or another.


i did speak to a therapist once and quickly realised that I am not ready to go back to normal eating patterns if it meant staying at my current weight. i think getting diagnosed just means that people will try and stop me, and i can't stop. not yet.

Diagnosed but with the wrong ED. When I received my diagnosis 15 years ago, EDNOS wasn't really considered so they lumped me into the Bulimia category. I dont B/P anymore, and I've always been more someone to restrict and obsessively exercise. I have a very similar feeling about my ED as you.

I am also a healthy BMI and feel like I don't deserve treatment because there are so many others that are in much worse shape. My damn body is too resilient to my abuse. 

I hope you stay safe and mostly healthy.

I’m similar. I always had disordered habits but a couple of years ago I got up to like 230ish? And I lost over 30 lbs in one month. I was doing hours of cardio, working on my feet, and got violently ill and dizzy routinely from not eating and overexercising. I continued to lose until 180s. Gained back up to about 200, then forced my weight down to 174. In January I was back at 203 or so? Now I am 172. I am 5’9” so I’m a “normal” weight at around 170. Every time I get it lower than the last time, but no one care because I am never underweight. I mean, my husband cares but I have to tell him and my sister is the one person who actually notices that I don’t eat. Everyone pretty much applauds me, and just lets me do it even though every time I am asked how I lost so much weight so quickly I tell the truth. I say “I starved myself,” or “oh, I just do not eat.”

So no, never been diagnosed, but I have had binging and restricting habits my whole life, even in elementary school. It has just gotten worse and worse as I have gotten older, with more time spent restricting, less time binging. I think it has gotten worse largely because I am just more disciplined, my life is objectively better than it was when I was teenager/young adult. Now I’m almost 30 and life is pretty good, and I absolutely torture myself. It’s nonsense I know it, but no diagnoses so I guess I’m fine!

My GP diagnosed me, I'm not sure if that counts. He just said "you have anorexia". But that was about a year ago and my weight and behaviors have changed.

I'm on Levothyroxine, and therefore go to medical checkups monthly. I had a talk with my nurse, who told me that I show big signs of having an eating disorder and most likely do, but then said that she wasn't qualified to make a diagnosis like that. She referenced me to a professional. Went to the clinic 4 times, never had the courage to open the door. Still waiting.

went to my gp and i told him that i needed help for depression + social anxiety. he didn't really explicitly diagnose me with anything, just kinda agreed with my own statements? if that counts as a diagnosis? 


he still got me therapy sessions, which was nice. i actually quite liked my therapist (her ideas were kinda meditation? really?) but just being able to talk freely about some of my issues and being acknowledged instead of dismissed helped me a lot. i never gave her any hints of an ed though, and since quite a significant part of my insecurities come from body image, i'm probably gonna be stuck being a sad anxious bitch forever. 


i also went to a 'natural practitioner' cause my mom's a bit of a health-natural-essential-oils person. she made me fill in a weekly diet chart so she could adjust my diet to 'fix' my mental issues. long story short, she asked me to elaborate on my yoghurt bowls...and me being stupid, i told her that i always use 200g of yoghurt. which is sooo specific, she immediately got super sus at me and asked "do you weigh it out? do you always weigh your food?"


i just told her that i'm really bad at eyeballing things and i'm a bit ocd when it comes to 'perfecting the ratios' in certain meals. which is an excuse i use often lol. especially when it comes to small things like coffee, smoothies, yoghurt bowls....i just tell people "i found the perfect ratio of how much oat milk to use with how much coffee and etc" and they never question it (beyond thinking im a bit weird...but everyone has weird quirks like this, so it's not a big deal). 


sorry... kinda went super off topic on this one, but insomnia is keeping me up and i really need a distraction right now.
