Do I have an ED?

I am 13 years old, I constantly feel fat. I am 5 '3 and 107-10 lbs, I fluctuate. I don't eat much because I have a voice that says eating will make me fat. Am I fat? I throw up my food too. Do I have a problem?  Am I over reacting?

I really appreciate you sharing your struggle with me. I would not venture to diagnose you without seeing you for a comprehensive eating disorder evaluation.  I am concerned with the symptoms you are presenting.  Please seek out a counselor at school and speak to you parents about seeing an eating disorder specialist in your area for an evaluation. In addition, to learn more about eating disorders and to take an eating disorder survey, you could visit the bella vita website.

Well you are actually very normal in size.. Don't put yourself down.. You aren't over reacting, but calm down .. Lots of girls out there are going through this too, but please stop throwing your food up.. It is VERY unhealthy.. You've gotta have your nutrients..
My suggestion is to just eat healthy, exercise, but don't starve yourself or throw it up..
When you throw up, you lose nutrients in your bones and muscles.. And it'll just make u weak and groggy/tired..
So maybe consider being vegetarian/vegan? What ever you'd like but take it easy chikka!(;
