I was in a relationship with an anorexic and the realtionship failed miserablely..for 2 years of the relationship the drug use was out of control..we both got clean and sober and i have been that way for almost 3 years now..the crazy thing is that when april got sober she immediately started losing weight and got down to about 90 pounds..i TRIED TO SUPPORT HER AND BE THERE FOR HER...my question is i started to see april withdrawing from the relationship and becoming completely unavailable...does the disease of ed rob you of your feelings and if so do you have to recover to get them back...the emotional unavailability that she displayed was horrible..the therapist told me to lay off of her and so i did and that still didnt work..it got to the point that we would go to dinner at someones house and she would bring her own food to eat or we would have to stop to get to go food...when she left my house i found like 4 empty cartons of laxatives and i know she was only pooping like 1 time a week? is that part of the disease? i remember her telling me she was having fat days and i just wouldnt say anything...i am sad and i did my share of acting out i really did..but i was frustrated with the whole situation..i really was. i guess i just want to know if it is possible to have a healthy relationship with someone that is in active addiction with this disorder?

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
