I'm 17 years old, 5"7' and weigh 115-117lbs (my BMI is around 18.3).
For months I couldn't eat any more that one small meal a day (rarely finishing it) and only because my parents noticed I was leaving the house without breakfast. I was going through a tough time emotionally, but that's gotten better now and I'm managing to take something to school for lunch again, though I can't always eat it.
I eat roughly one meal a day and often a small snack. I'm curious as to whether this is anorexia, or was, when I couldn't eat properly. A lot of the time when I try to eat something, it seems to turn ashy in my mouth, dry and tastes awful, even if I know I like it, and that'd usually stop me eating whatever it is.
Am I anorexic? Or borderline?
