Ok, so my main ED problem is that i restrict what i eat. But every now and then because my body is starving, i guess, i go on a mad binge and then feel guilty so i purge and it usually lasts a couple of days and then i go back to restricting (I am waiting for a referral to an ED service at the moment, taking a while though) Anyway unfortunatly I am in a binge/purge couple of days right now. I feel HUGE. Anyway i walk to my local garage just now for snacks that i intend to b/p. I select my snacks. I go to pay. The cashier says 'you are very thin, don't you eat' in a jovial tone. I am stunned. I laugh nervously, he repeats himself. I say, 'i run', 'how far?' he asks, and 'how often', i tell him. He says 'i want to get rid of my belly', i laugh again nervously, 'what should i do?' he asks. I say 'your wife must cook you good food!' he laughs 'yes, too much!' and i leave. I felt ridiculous and awkward. Did he know i was going to purge the snack foods? Was he taking the mickey out of me, making out i'm thin when he thinks i am a big fat heffer? I just didn't know what to do or say. Why do people think they can comment onthings like your body shape? I know i can never go back there. I just wondered what people do when things like this happen. It was mortifying.
