Transgender ED patient experiences?

What's it like to be a transgender person and go through recovery for an ED? I'm a transman and I think I need to talk to my therapist about my eating issues. I haven't been diagnosed with anything as of right now, but I know for certain I've got issues with food. I'm talking to my therapist about it Monday, and I haven't ever seen any stories about people like me


Hi. I first off want to say that I am not transgendered but don't want your post going unnoticed. I am glad you reached out and am glad that you will be talking with your therapist. I know there is a blog here and there are people who are dealing with your issues have written there so you may find some support there. I wish you the best. Regardless of our individual issues, dealing with eating disorders is difficult without support. I hope you find what you are looking for.
