  • I did and it affected my self-esteem and I somehow had the illusion I was fat at barely 100 pounds. I still have a lot of emotional baggage from it and issues but at least I'm not starving myself anymore. It's a mental illness for sure and it's something that will probably always lurk about in my mind, and be obsessive over my body.
