    All I can say is that I was bulimic 4 months ago (from April to June) (I’m going to be a junior in high school this fall)
    & it was horrible ’cause I had to deal with the school’s shiit, my mother’s shiit so I puked in the bathroom sink…so I think they will probably get worse
    I really hope that you’ll stop ana & mia…I know it’s hard…just when you go to college have fun & let go of ana & mia.

    ok, this may be a bit of a strech, but bare with me ^^ I’ve never had an eating disorder, but I do self-injure (i.e. cut myself). I only mention it cause it’s in the same “family” as eating disorders, from a mental health perspective. I found that when I went away I stopped cutting myself as much, cause I had more things to do and I was enjoying myself more and felt good about myself. And I was away from my home, which was a major trigger. Then I relapsed when I came home. It depends on a lot of things. It helps to get away from triggers you may have, but can also seperate you from support (if you have any). And college is definitely stressful. So, I can’t really say. it might go up for a bit and then go down. If you are worried you should get on it though. You don’t want it to be full-blown. I’ve got two friends with eating-disorders, one is a recovering bulimic one is on-and-off anorexic, so it hits close to home, and I just imagine one of them totally losing control. I can’t imagine you, or anyone you care about, would want to see something that horrible. My point: see if you can get help if you see it getting worse. Anorexia and bulimia are the most dangerous of all psychological disorderes (if I’ve got that right) and also some of the hardest to treat. So, don’t let it get away from you, see if you can get a counsellor. Also, check out recoveryourlife.com. it’s mostly about self-injury, but it’s also got a whole section about EDs. With forums where you can talk to others and get support and advice, info on it, etc. It’s a good resource, you should check it. I’ve no idea if this is what you wanted, but I hope something works. Take care ^^
