So in sixth grade I went to a new school with new people. At lunch I didn't know anybody, so this group of AMAZING people invited me to sit with them. I continued sitting with them the whole year. In about a week of eating in front of them, I begun chewing my food slower, and picking at it more. I wanted to avoid eating in front of them because it was embarrassing to me. Then in a month I quit eating. I would bring my lunch and give it to them. Then one day a boy asked me if I was anorexic. I didn't know what that meant, so I said no. I looked it up when I got home that day and kinda laughed, because I understood why he thought that. And then, after about 2 weeks, I noticed I didn't want to eat at home either. I think reading the symptoms on the Internet triggered something... But now I'm in 8th grade and know for a fact I have anorexia. My question is: was it anorexia in the beginning, or me just being weird?
