Good question, despite having the ed for 2 years, I can't remember purposefully doing anything particularly dangerous apart from not eating but I know I've been in numerous situations where I probably could have died if I wasn't careful, like when I've fasted without drinking enough water (aka every time I fast) the morning after, I get insanely weak to the point where I have to crawl around and my heart starts beating really hard and fast, if I hadn't eaten something those days I think I could have died. I've almost fainted a number of times, almost every time It could have been deadly. I have considered tapeworm diet but never went through with it. Reading all of this, I'm realizing this is more of a problem than thought, thinking these I literally thought yeah just the normal stuff, this is honestly fucked up and I'm brushing it off like its nothing because I've normalized it and I could have done worse, shit lol.

In my teens I tried to swallow cotton balls, 0/10 don’t recommend unless by losing weight you aim for death by choking and hope your corpse skeleton looks real skinny 6 ft under.

My risky move was consulting some random doctor over the phone in India to get Wellbutrin (even though it is contraindicated in people with anorexia because of increased risk of seizures).  Got a month's supply of it for $50, consult included!  It's prescribed to help people stop smoking so that's what I told them even though I've never had a cig in my life.  I love it because it helps my libido and mood and decreases my appetite.

I did a shit-ton of ecstacy because afterwards you tend to not want to eat. But my face swelled up so bad from clenching my jaws while I was on it and I fractured a tooth.

And then I told yet another lie to my beloved mother when she asked why my face was so swollen, because I couldn't tell her I wasn't eating and definitely couldn't tell her I did drugs. She deserves a better daughter... God, I love my mom..

Omg!! I did this too! I took about 700mg caffeine and WRECKED myself for nearly 3 days. My kidneys felt like they were in a vice, my chest hurt so bad, and for a day and a half I couldn't stand up for more than a few moments without fainting. I puked up a bunch of clear liquid too!

Honestly, I didn't have the energy or blood pressure to stand up long enough to weigh myself during this whole fiasco, but I do recall this being around the same time I hit my all time lowest weight lol

going on drug binges for days at a time and not eating the whole time except maybe a glass of orange juice
alcohol monos (do not recommend holy shit)
going to work on day 3 of a fast at 5am after downing a couple energy drinks, i somehow made it through the shift but my heart was ready to give up on the way home
a few years ago when i was in high school i used to walk home (1hr 30mins) on an empty stomach instead of catching a bus so i could burn more calories
smoking so much weed every day/night that i would vomit up the tiny amount of food i was actually eating at the time.
essentially surviving off weed, nicotine and caffeine for the better part of the last 6 years.

Abused otc medicine, abused antidepressants that made me extremely suicidal but on the plus side would also kill my appetite and any urge to binge, would overexercise for two to three days straight while fasting mainly biking for hours on end in a completely unknown as well as pretty much empty area so the risk of passing out or having a heart attack and not being found for quite some time was high, purposely trying to contract a sickness such as the flu or a stomach virus so I wouldn't have to eat, purposely trying to give myself food poisoning, I've also considered taking prescription drugs that I'm allergic to in hopes of it destroying my stomach so I can't eat, and now my most recent plan is to get all of my wisdom teeth pulled out in January (after I get the money lmao) just so I won't be able to eat. There's probably more but I also have zero memory so 🤷🏻‍♀️

Edit: I also just remembered that more than once I downed at least 900 mg or more of caffeine in one sitting, although that really wasn't because of my ED but more of just because I hated myself and wanted to feel something.

When I was an 18 year old...20 years ago... I did meth everyday for six months to try and lose more weight.

Recently, I had my SO put a lock on the kitchen and I keep it locked all day and make him lock it immediately after dinner- the only meal I'll eat something. ... I do get more calories from drinking alcohol...

Took orlistat to avoid weight gain after eating a normal meal. Took me two weeks to develop acute pancreatitis and landed me in hospital.

Binged after weeks of severe restriction without even knowing about refeeding syndrome.

I was so oblivious at the beginning of my ED.

Wow! Congratulations on getting clean!!! That's definitely not easy! I've never done meth (and I certainly don't plan to) but a family member of mine has been on it for years and can't seem to stay clean. Seriously, you're incredible!

Wow, thank you so much!!! It is one hell of a drug. I relapsed about a hundred times before I got it right. I had an ED before I ever did drugs and so the drugs were definitely fueled by my ED which made it so hard to quit since I would gain weight every time I'd try to get clean. Also, it's just a really addictive drug!!! I hope your family member makes it out of the hell that is a meth addiction
