  1. I get what you’re trying to do and that is great. However, I would appreciate a paragraph in there about how there are serious medical disorders that can be misdiagnosed as an eating disorder. Such as POTS/EDS and their complications. I’ve gotten crap about having an eating disorder most of my life. In reality, I was seriously sick and needed medical attention that I still haven’t really gotten. As a girl, my daughter is going to face the same stigmatization :( It would help if you could raise awareness about this facet to reduce the misinformation and social hysteria…

    1. Hi Rozlin – Laurie has added an Author’s Note to the post in recognition of the fact that other diagnoses are always a possibility. The most important step is for an individual to be evaluated so the correct diagnosis can be made.
