    im 16 yrs old, weigh 105 - 108 lb and am about 5ft 5in. for a few years i've had quite bad depression, and have self harmed a huge amount. im on medication and seeing a therapist for all that.
    i've always thought im fat and recently i've begun to engage in about 3 hours of exercise per day. i barely eat anything, usually small cereal for brekkie and half of dinner, or not even that.
    im determined to lose weight. i feel its the only thing i have control of in my life, coz im so desperately unhappy and empty.
    i hate my body and myself immensely.
    is this just a part of depression or another form of self harm or an eating disorder, or nothing.

    Sounds like an eating disorder to me... perhaps you should mention it to your therapist?!

    its also part of your depression, but still this is an eating disorder, the exercising, barely eating, control, thinking youre fat, i agree with artifice, you should mention it to your therapist
