My eating disorder started when I was a junior in high school. I don’t like to blame it on anything, but I think it was the result of my first break up and letting food be something I could control. Before that I never really paid attention to my weight – my mom cooked balanced meals and I danced and played sports so I was always pretty healthy.
I was bouncing between anorexic and bulimic behavior for most of my high school years. My home life was less than ideal. Even though I come from a respected family; it was anything but normal. Out of respect for my family, I shall say no more on that. Only, that the situation was stressful.
