We cannot diagnose you with an eating disorder because we are not professionals. Best place to find that answer is a professional, like a psychiatrist or medical doctor trained to recognize and diagnose eating disorders.

Can't diagnose but...

Hi Dog_lover (I love dogs too!) - Tryingtoheal ^ is correct, we cannot diagnose on the forums because we are not professionals. But I hope you seek help for what you're going through, as it seems very possible reading through your symptoms that you're dealing with an ED. NEDA is a wonderful resource and can help with finding treatment providers in your area. Seeking treatment for my ED saved my life and is the best thing I ever did for myself. Also, we can't diagnose, but we can understand and support you so I hope you continue posting, and I hope you get some answers soon. Keep us posted! <3 STP


Hi! I agree with the last two commenters in that we can't exactly answer your question, but really encourage you to speak to a professional as they will probably be able to answer that any any other medical or mental health related questions you may have, because it sounds like you are going through a lot, and we want you to get the support you deserve :) But, something through NEDA that I'd recommend doing is their online screening tool, which may give an even clearer answer as to whether seeking professional support would be the best option for you. You can find it pretty easily on the website, and again, I hope you find the support you deserve. Stay well
