I was morbidly obese. I have restricted and abused laxatives to the tune of a "normal" BMI. My doctor loves this. My husband is terrified of my weight loss but has no idea there are eating disorders. My family believes it's my fibromyalgia making me lose weight. I just feel like no one understands me at allView Thread
I am 40. Have heavy bleeding disorder. I suffered with bulimia from 11-18 recovered until 4 years ago. I am 5 ft 6. I have gone from 260lbs to 170lbs. All I hear is ed this and ed that. I have now been told I must return to therapy or they will make it difficult to get meds for my fibromyalgia. Ugh, it is frustrating but you are not alone.View Thread
