Those do sound like OCD-type behaviors. It's not uncommon for individuals with eating disorders to also suffer from anxiety disorders, PTSD, OCD, depression, etc., but I'd say those issues are separate from the ED per se, although they may well be related through some of the same underlying issues.

Dear AK, it sounds like you still have a lot to sort out but also that you are thinking about how to do that, as confusing as it is. It sounds like a general program might be a good thing so try not to be too nervous about it. Hopefully they can help you get the OCD confusion sorted out. :goodluck: Mari

Anorexia, Anxiety and Letting Go Sarah Illingworth October/02/2014 I let anorexia rule my world for about eight years. For me, it ended up being more about anxiety, and a way of dealing with it, than anything else, and it's been amazing to not have either dictate my behavior for a while now. I think many of us struggle with similar things, so I wrote this in case it's of help to those who do. And hopefully to shed a little light on eating and anxiety disorders for those who don't have a...

Wow. Those fashion dimensions are CRAZY and it infuriates me. :( I don't see much support online for men with eating disorders. I am glad the young man in this story was able to get help. It absolutely breaks my heart when I hear of anyone suffering with an eating disorder. It's so insidious.
