Though my eating disorder started decades ago, I am now a woman over the age of 50 that is still struggling with the illness; and the loneliness I feel seems to increase as I grow older. After all, ED is still generally considered to be a young girl/woman's disease. I felt lost in the treatment facilities where rules and activities were geared primality towards women who were half or less than half of my age. And even seeking treatment is harder for us older adults since we are so entangled in our jobs and daily responsibilities that we cannot just walk away from them. As I am writing this, tears are welling up in my eyes...

I'm 92 lbs and thirteen years oldTo some people it's average or even underweight but I don't see it like that. In the mirror, I see a big ugly blob. I need to loose weight but the problem is that I get hungry. Everytime I eat I feel guilty. Can someone please give me advice on how to be more skinny.
