I was anorexic and bulimic in my 20's. I'm 5'4" and weighed 89 pounds. This was in the 70's and seeing a doctor, but neither he nor I had any knowledge of eating disorders. With no help at all, I started eating again and drinking more alcohol. Only in the last 2 years, have I received help for the bulimia. Eating disorders do not go away and many older women still suffer from the disease. I'm one of the lucky ones, it's been over 10 years since I've had an episode.
I am curious. Has anyone else suffered from an eating disorder? Has there been any link between diabetes and anorexia/bulimia?
