    I had several of these symptoms when I had my weight issues. I realized what I was doing and changed up some of my behaviors. I was really one of the fortunate ones. It was some very scary stuff. I still have body issues.

    I’ve suffered from Bulimia for 5 years, in ‘remission’ for two. I would spend around £30 a day on food to binge and often purged using diaretcs and once even used ipecac. I’d also excercise for at least 3 hours a day. Most of the symptons you discussed I suffered from however thankfully I haven’t purged in years after many years of councilling.

    It’s always good to raise awareness for this issue so thank you.

    I’ve been forced to change a lot of my habits as far as eating and exercising. I’ve put back on weight because of changing my patterns, but I still have issues with feeling fat even though I am in the low end of what I am supposed to be. It’s a long hard process when paired with other body image issues. Therapy is a good thing, but it takes a lot of work.

    Wow, I didn’t know that students in private school were far more likely to have it. I wonder how charter schools stack up; I teach in one.

    I don’t think people really understand just how serious eating disorders are. One thing that is so important and unavoidable resting on your mind so permanently….

    The world’s biggest eating disorder is famine, let’s focus on that.

    Thank you for this video.

    It’s always good to see someone doing a video on something that is medically important but very rarely sees the light of day, unless you know someone who suffers from those disorders. Looking forward to the next video : ) Cheers

    I’m pretty sure that most of us know someone who suffers from some sort of eating disorder, whether we know they have it or not.

    It’s pretty good as long as you’re expecting analytical philosophy. There’s not much scope for continental stuff until much later on, and even then, never any opportunity to study existentialism.

    Personally, I loved it. The lecturers are at the height of their fields and it’s a great environment. As far as standards dropping goes, well, Moore, Wittgenstein and Russell aren’t around anymore but apart from that I can’t really comment.

    A very good video. Its really easy for people to over look it. No one ever thinks it will affect their family or their friends. No one knew i was starving myself until one night i woke up with stomach pain, and nausea. I ended up falling asleep near the toilet waiting to vomit, I couldnt because i hadn’t really eaten in close to three days, i probably ate about a handful of almonds and water. my mum found me and made me eat so yogurt, i threw it up and I realized i had a problem.

  14. nyrnyjnymdn says:

    were u not eating on purpose?

  15. lilvixenchica says:

    Well yes and no, it’s really complicated. I was not in a good relationship, i was stressed out and the only thing i could control is what i ate. So yes i chose not to eat but at the same time there were extenuating circumstances, that played into my mental health, that caused me to stop eating.

  16. Tinsletooth says:

    Hey man lots of the symptoms you said applied to me and I am the furthest thing from an anorexic, I hide chocolate in my room in my drawer, I eat specific meals through out the day at certain times, I work out 2-4 hours a day, I love cooking for other people. Except the difference is I have 6 meals a day, I eat extremely healthy, I am a light bodybuilder/ strength and indurence trainer when I see lbs going up on the scale I love it. It takes discipline to live like this.

  17. LeoReadAstory says:

    I was wondering if would cite some of your sources for the information, please?

  18. miksedene says:

    I’m sorry, it’s been a while so I can’t be sure of everything. Most of the description of symptoms was taken from DSM-IV and the prevalence statistics were taken from the NHS website and were sourced by 2001 UK census data. As for the numerous behaviours that weren’t directly symtomatic, I’m not sure what the original sources were. I took them mainly from my lecture notes at the time.

  19. LeoReadAstory says:

    I mostly needed the NHS website; thank you miksedene, it was helpful.

  20. John Carraway says:

    The power of psychology can overwhelm anyone’s intelligence. We all are victims of the laws of mediocrity.

  21. John Carraway says:

    There’s probably a psycho/sexual factor causing eating disorders. It may even be genetic.
