Hi guys, Im new to this site. I suffer from depression, and i also have a negative relationship with food, as well as a constant battle with body image. I never eat 3 meals a day, and most of the time i can get by with only one meal or none at all, by snacking on small things every now and again. I dont make myself sick or take laxatives, but i have tried to in the past; unsuccessfully. If i do go on a bit of a binge, or feel as though i have over eaten i will skip meals. I have lost about a stone and a half in weight, and everyone seems to be commenting on the fact. I now weigh just over 8 stone and i am 5ft 4in tall. I know i am not overweight, but i am never satisfied with how i am and i always want to be that extra bit smaller. I have been stuck in this habbit since i was about 13 years old. I have gone from a size 10 to a size 6-8, depending on where i get my clothes from. But im still not happy. I see myself in a completely different way to how others say they see me. I hate eating in front of people and my workmates have noticed that I dont eat very often. I dont know what category i fall into??

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
