    I assume mental illness does though. The genes that predispose one to ED’s overlap with other mental illnesses on the neural side. When it comes to anorexia, there are a few other genes that also affect the metabolic side. I also think trauma (to varying degrees of severity) is likely to be a huge factor in anyone who has developed an ED.

    Yeah my mom and dad have no signs of ED... however, my sister, who is both mentally and physically disabled, does.

    That makes perfect sense. Do you ever talk to her about it? I can't really ever talk to my sister about her ED or my own, because her own extremely severe mental illness and my family dynamics put a major strain on our ability to ever communicate.

    Naw my sister is massively mentally impaired… she can barely speak on her own anymore… the concept wouldn’t make sense I don’t think

    I certainly have the other mental issues alongside my anorexia, including a psychotic disorder, PTSD and some experienced trauma from childhood. Anorexia seemed to just creep in there with the rest of it. I started to eventually use anorexia as a tool for self harming/slow death, when I got close towards my rock bottom moment. I have periodic thoughts of suicide and thought I could just go out slowly with anorexia and not have to think about the process much.

    Now, in recovery, I have to face all these things together and work on all of it. I've got a crap-ton of professionals in every corner helping me tackle each element with the most severe right now being the anorexia recovery. I'm finding as my health improves, my mental health is also improving alongside. I'm starting to feel like a new person the last couple of days.

    So, yeah...mental issues definitely came from my family/genetics and may have subconsciously led me down the anorexic path. I didn't seek it out but did start to embrace it later on. I actually enjoyed many aspects of the illness, as hard as that is to explain.

    I'm doing well though right now. Developing new thought processes, fears are slowly reducing because I'm trying to fight them head on. But overall, I'm generally feeling MUCH better. Almost forgot what it's like to function somewhat normally. Still got a ways to go with my mental re-wiring but the nutrients are flowing

    That is quite common, and 'missing' or 'mourning' the loss of your ED is a very real occurrence in those going through and getting through recovery.

    ED's become a defining part of our identity, they shape our days/schedules, they give us a system of desire/reward/need/accomplishment, and when those go away we are often left without a huge coping mechanism we used to drown out the real world.

    I personally suffered from a great deal of this, essentially waiting for other things to come into my life to 'fill the void' created by purging the ED from my life.

    It can take time to fill those pathways with other rewarding things: friends, hobbies, love interests, new projects or adventures...

    I posted this on the Misc:

    I was 5’6 118 in my avi and that’s when I couldn’t even function in terms of driving or working as I was dizzy and fainting, so I ended up in the ambulance and they put me in the Eating Disorder hospital for 3 months and I gained 50 lbs in 3 months with their 4,000 calorie a day meal plan.

    My daughter is 5’4 and unfortunately under 100 lbs so what’s worse is I passed the eating disorder on to her. Another family member is under 100 lbs, 18 with bulimia. My daughter’s Dr. is making her come in for weighing.

    I got down in the 140s when I had that IFBB pro trainer who passed away, but I didn’t hold it after 2 years. Her meal plan was too strict with fat-free Greek yogurt and fat-free cottage cheese with salads, protein powder, brown rice and oats. Eventually I started increasing to low fat, adding butter, having lunch in the work cafe, binging and sometimes purging, and then gained it all back plus.

    Now I’ve dropped 6 inches but my ED therapist is not happy that I restricted to lose weight, so she’s having me see a ED nutritionist starting next week. Honestly I just want to be a normal size for my height, bone structure and exercise level and stop obsessing about numbers.

    I need to be a better role model for my daughter as she just has one meal a day and calls me fat for having 3 meals plus a snack. In her mind having 2 meals a day is hell.

    I’m so scared for her life or that she may end up inpatient as I was.

    Question, so I got sick and have been home for a while. I haven't been doing what I use to do as workout and I have been maintaining my weight. is this the time to correct my thoughts and eat what I want? I get the thoughts of eating less now since it seems im losing muscle and gaining fat?

    What do you mean “is this the time”?

    Do you not remember asking this already in September?

    See below....

    Obviously cutting with an ED is just having an ED... so... i think the answer is obvious.

    Force feeding may be necessary if your hunger cues cause you to lose appetite.
