    I know that there is something wrong with my eating habits. In the past 6 months, I have deliberately lost 13 pounds, currently my BMI is 17.9. I never purge, fast at least 2 days out of each week, and whenever I eat what I consider to be a binge (usually a large meal) I can't stop crying, spend the whole night doing sit ups and refuse to leave my house until the next morning. I can't remember the last time I ate 3 full meals in a day, or that I ate in front of someone that wasn't part of my family. I rarely go out if I've eaten over 200 calories that day, because I feel so heavy. But because I don't starve myself every day, and I never, ever purge, I can't define myself as actually having an eating disorder, therefore I am too embarassed to actually try and get any help. All I know is that food completely controls my life these days, and I really want to be able to eat normally without feeling grotesquely large and unworthy of enjoying myself. I was just wondering if anyone thinks it is worth bringing this up with my psychiatrist next time I see him, or whether I am making a big deal out of something that happens to most people.
