Hi, for many years now I have had a habit of making myself purge after eating. The only reason I question if it is a disorder is because it is very on and off. Sometimes I go months without doing it, and sometimes I’m doing it every day. I’m really not sure and I don’t talk about this much with anyone so I’d like an opinion.

Purging disorder is an eating disorder that is characterized by people purging in an effort to lose weight. It sounds like what you do might fall under the definition of Purging disorder, which is an eating disorder. Have you ever looked into that?

No! Did not even know that existed. I will look into it, thank you
