Just curious what the demographics are around here? would you be willing to share?
I'm 33 now. my ed started when I was about 13. It got really bad when I was 19. I tried recovery when I was 31, relapsed, and tried again at 32. I'm 33 now, and I'm still in recovery.
When I was in my early 20s I posted on a forum regularly, and there was a thread similar to this. One of the oldest women on the forum was in her 30s. At that time it seemed like so old to me to have an ed. Like for some reason, there was some kind of an age limit or it was a young person's illness.
it's not though.
I think my mom is anorexic.
I think a lot of people who suffer are in denial, too.
