You may eat quickly or eat more food than intended, even when you're not hungry, and you may continue eating even long after you're uncomfortably full. Not because I want people to feel bad, but quite the opposite. I never wanted anyone to know what was going on so no one in my family, friends or relationships knew. This article did nothing but triggered more feelings of guilt and regret in me, but I guess your intention was to make us feel even more horrible about ourselves.

This post is not only inaccurate, but extremely hurtful. Having love for my recently departed partner over minor issues and their seemingly frustrations with past and not so healthy choices, has hurt me deeply I know I could have done more or different. We might have a few crazy fits. Not media, not my boyfriend of 3 years, not my family. You are so mind-numbingly stupid.
The fact that you are actually ignorant enough to tell us that people with legit eating disorders are toxic pisses me off more than anything. Why anyone takes you seriously enough to even consider your unfounded opinions is beyond me. Narcissism is one, someone who thinks that they are so beautiful and perfect, that only their way is right, and everyone else should be avoided or put down. A lot of people have different mental illness. I crave the instant attraction- the game of locking eyes till one gives in and comes over.

I just hope that I will recover from this, because I want to be able to do normal things like everyone else. But both can be used in the same way - to cope with emotions, abuse, trauma, etc.
I am sorry I ever stumbled across this article. Iremember speaking with a group of patients about our body checking rituals. I feel like the few people who know about my problem think I am being very over dramatic. Out of any mental illness, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate statistically.

This is extremely offensive to some people and it has many untrue facts. The hardest part for me is the link between food and intimacy.
