Well, I'm not sure about where to post this, but I suppose the metabolism section could work.

Anyways. I think I may have Anorexia Nervosa. I am 5'8", 14 years old and I weigh 115 pounds (52 kg.)

I absolutely hate my body. I feel like I am the fattest person at my school, and would rather die from starvation than be fat like I am. I eat only when I absolutely have to, which is once a day when our family eats dinner together. I desperately try to keep my consumption under 200 calories, and whatever I eat, I try to burn off immediately.

I haven't eaten in over a day currently. I feel so hungry that I feel like my stomach is about to cave in, but at the same time, I also can't force myself to eat on my own - because that would make me fat.

Am I anorexic? Am I EDNOS? Please help. If you are going to tell me that I am a poser/wannarexic, please don't. I'm suffering enough already, believe me. Thanks.
