    A child not eating

    Hello, I have a friend, and she lives in a household with her husband, son, his wife and their child. Most of the family members are mainly all alcohol addicts apart from my friend, so of course, the atmosphere at home is very damaging and upsetting. She is really concerned, as the child is 11

    Pregnancy and ED support

    I just found this support group tonight and am really hoping there are active mommies or mommies to be on here. I have had an ED since around 12 yo.

    Rapid weight gain...anyone experienced this in anorexia recovery?

    I'm currently seeing a dietitian fortnightly, and today was a weigh day. My weight had shot up 2kg and I have really freaked out. My dietitian wasn't clear what it could be when we analysed my intake - although she suspects some bloating potentially as it wouldn't be possible to gain that much

    I Eat Constantly!

    I eat constantly. When I'm bored, I eat. When I'm in public with food, I eat. I think about food, and food is in my mouth. I weigh probably around 120lb I'm skinny and have two kids. I know when to stop eating and when I do get to my limit, I eat constantly again! What is wrong with me?
