Poll: My Eating Disorder, One Word At A Time


What words help define your experience with your Eating Disorder? In the sidebar you will find an anonymous poll, My Eating Disorder, One Word At A time, where you can share your words with others who also suffer with an ED, and help those that don't to better understand.

If the list is missing words that are important to you and your experience please feel free to share them in the comment section.

If you are in recovery or seeking recovery, please check back. Upon the completion of this poll will be a similar poll about your recovery.

Participation is always greatly appreciated. Thank You.

I didn't see the choice, I don't have an ed, but I love you and your blog.

Avenuegirl! I wish I had added that. It would have been a good choice. I'm sorry about that. I thought of so many other words after the poll had already been voted on and you can't change it. Thanks for commenting and the compliments. I really appreciate them! The feeling is mutual. :)
