:eek: Hi. Im izzie, im 18 years old and i live in the UK. I suppose ill just write a short story about my life so far- i dont know if it will interest anyone.
When i was 11 i developed an eating disorder, and was admitted into an adolescent unit at the age of 13 for anorexia nervosa. I was transferred at 14 to a specialist hospital, where i was sectioned and also diagnosed with depression and OCD.
I left hospital after two years, and found my family different. My father had died from cancer, and the rest of my family had moved on. I could not get on with my step father, whose treatment of me bordered emotional abuse.
I now live in a hostel. My anorexia, in my opinion, is long gone. I gained *alot* of weight after i left hospital, and have only just managed to curb the bingeing. I am currently back on medication for OCD, which is the main reason i sought out this forum- problems with medication and a feeling of futility in that i feel like the OCD will *never* shift.

Hope i didnt bore anyone or piss anyone off. Im off to investigate the rest of the place now. Nice to meet you all. :)
