I don't think it was AN, honestly I was really out of it at the appointment, I just know it was some kinda anorexia. I also heard that weight was taken out for DSM(?) 6?

The DSM V(5) has NOT removed an underweight criteria for anorexia nervosa. What you have been diagnosed with is atypical anorexia nervosa (what used to be EDNOS). 

It’s really fucked up that they now classify it as atypical anorexia nervosa, because it allows people to claim anorexia nervosa, when they don’t have anorexia nervosa. I assume that will be changed in the revised edition. 

As for it being normal? What do you mean by that? I mean, only around 3.7 percent of women have anorexia nervosa, and only 1 percent of teenage girls have it. So, if we’re talking normal from a statistical standpoint, then no. If you mean normal from a psychological functioning and workability standpoint, no. If you mean in terms of out of the entire population of people will all of the possible eating disorders, being squarely in the EDNOS category is normal, then yes. ‘Normal’ is traditionally decided by percentages, and there are a much much higher percentage of people with EDNOS than actual anorexia nervosa.

Okay I get what your saying but what is wrong with people claiming they have anorexia?? It doesn’t personally effect you as a person. And frankly after speaking to my therapist I am learning labels are less important than I used to think.

Because if every Tom, Dick, and Harry claim they have anorexia, then my diagnosis is thus taken less seriously because “everyone” has it. Labels are important because your diagnosis determines your treatment. Should we put importance on our labels as individuals? No. But they are still an important deciding factor in what treatment people receive, and therefore, would not be practical or helpful if everyone who claimed to have anorexia was magically diagnosed with it. People claiming to have anorexia when they don’t affects every single person who has been diagnosed with actual anorexia, because people who claim to have it when they don’t both minimize the actual diagnosis and undermine the actual symptoms needed to have it. JFC.

If you’re going to sit there and complain about songs that “skinny shame” then you’re the fuckin problem, not the song. So many beautiful people are being called fat and if you’re stick skinny…

I have. Multiple times; I don’t react good to any medication. I’ve tried everyone there is and have been on trials for it. Goodbye. Done with you if you have nothing useful to say.

Yeah, there’s like no evidence out there that suggests that something won’t work, I’m a psychologist. I should know. Stop being a bullshitter and grow up. Accept the fact that you’re an asshole and continue ignoring the fact that MENTAL ILLNESS IS NOT AN EXCUSE TO BE AN ASSHOLE.

Stop acting like you know everything because the medication makes it worse. Read what ever the fuck I posted on this and go shove a pole up your ass. See you in hell.

That doesn’t change the fact that mental illness isn’t a fucking excuse to be a complete cunt. 

And if your medication makes your bipolar disorder worse, you’re on the wrong medications. Be an adult and consult your doctor.

Holy shit fuck you too cause I wasn’t in the right state of mind then. Tell me I wouldn’t get envious if just an hour before making this post, a person called me cause they think I have a good singing voice and wanted to meet, then met me and told me I was too fat to be a singer when I weight 109lbs and I’m 5ft 4”. Tell me that my manic depression doesn’t effect what I post so shut the fuck up about this.

Mental illness is never an excuse to be a wankstain. 

Stop making everyone else with a mental illness look bad by blaming your shitty attitude on an ENTIRELY controllable disorder. Take your medication and shut the fuck up.

You are the body type in the movies and on magazines. You are the people who don’t “need” photo shop to be on a poster so shut the fuck up and sit the fuck back down.

Holy shit. Fuck you. And fuck your one sided opinions. You don’t get to tell people when to be offended especially when it comes to comments about their own bodies.

Because literally every thin person in the world has a body like the ones we see in magazines.

All of them

I guess I’m a fat person now.

Body shaming is wrong across the entire spectrum. Fat shaming, skinny shaming, doesn’t matter. But being on the “bigger” or “curvier” part of the spectrum, it’s a nice break hearing these popular women sing about bigger bodies being beautiful too. But if they’re encouraging body positivity then it’s ironic and hypocritical to bash skinny girls in the process. Promote body positivity without destroying the self esteem of skinny women.
