So here is a question....

How many people have been sexually abused at some point in their life? And if so, do you think that you use your eating disorder to cope with the pain from the abuse?

hey thanks for making this community! you're so right about people getting so involved in the symptoms but i don't know any sites that actually ask about the reasons for it.

i guess i'll start by introducing myself then...
height: 5, 8
h.w: 130
c.w: 117
g.w.1: 110
g.w.2: 99
well theyre my stats. i think this whole thing started for a few reasons:
1) i was supposed to be getting a photoshoot because someone pulled me off the street and was like "do u want to have a portfolio so that u can model for [something that i can't even remember now!!]" and then the photographer never showed up so i just figured it was a big fat joke because i was so fugly
2) i suddenly realised how much thinner my friends are than me and i figured i needed to do something about that!
3) i started jogging just to get fit and found out that it was making me skinnier and i liked it!
4) finally i looked in the mirror one day and made a decision to change my life and kind of devote myself to this lifestyle because theres nothing i want more than to be thin

sorry that was so long but thats what this communitys for right?
if anyone has similar reasons to me then i'd love to talk!

Hi all!

I created this community to give people suffering from an eating disorder or body image issue, the opportunity to be able to talk about the underlying issues to their disease. All too often we get caught up in the behaviors and the symptoms, and we forget (and others forget too) that there is a reason for the behaviors / symptoms. Feel free to discuss that here. This is not a pro-eating disorder or an anti-eating disorder site. This is simply a place to talk about "why we are doing it"? Why are we torturing ourselves? Abuse? Hard family life? Etc.
