Frustrated with Ambiguous “EDNOS” Category

February 17, 2012

“I have been struggling with disordered eating for awhile. For most of this time, I wouldn’t have qualified for anorexia or bulimia, which I guess throws me into the EDNOS category. But honestly, I’m pissed to find myself in such an ambiguous category, like what I’m struggling with doesn’t even matter. It makes me frustrated that people only seem to care about what they call more “extreme” eating disorders. I’m struggling too, here. Don’t I matter?”
