Do i have an eating disorder? Have taken laxatives, induced vomiting after binges, gone on 1000cal diets over the past 20 years

Worrisome symptoms

Bulimia
You are describing binging and purging, and you are cutting your caloric intake significantly. These symptoms are certainly indicative of an eating disorder and/or body dysmorphic disorder. There are other criteria that must be met to actually be diagnosed but I would strongly recommend you see your FP or psychiatrist for further evaluation as these conditions could be dangerous.

What are the erly signs of an eating disorder?

Questions...

Are you underweight for your height, but think you are fat? Do you obsess about gaining weight & think you are fat, although others tell you you are too thin. Have you stopped menstruating? Do you nibble at your food & throw most of it away? If you are worried, it is probably worth consulting with a therapist who specializes in anorexia. It is hard to treat & very important to take care of !

My boyfriend has an eating disorder. Stay or go?

Up to you

Bulimia
Eating disorders are rare in males and can be tough to treat whatever one's gender. If he recognizes the problem and is seeking help and the two of you otherwise have a good relationship, it's neither contagious nor dangerous to you. But, if he expects you to support his bad eating habits or grows angry if you mention them, then leaving may be your best option. It often is quite chronic.
