Hi everyone, I am 27 years old and 7 years into my eating disorder. My mom died when I was 20 and that was the straw that broke the camels back. I stopped eating and then started binging and purging. I hit my lowest weight a few years ago but now have steadied out. My eating habits are horrible, I count calories with every bite I take. Although I am underweight on the charts I am more satisfied that I have been able to maintain for some time. I am now in counseling working through the sexual abuse I experienced as a child. I hope to one day grow beyond the one thing I have held onto for so long. I am caught in a catch 22 as am ready to have a child but I am not healthy enough to get pregnant but pregnancy may help me get healthy. My goal is to one day find satisfaction and acceptance with myself.
