How long can you be anorexic/bulimic before someone starts to notice or the symptoms become obvious?
I've been feeling gross when I eat and am afraid that following my bad self-image will come an eating disorder. I already have stress issues and get depressed a lot (which can result in minor self harm). I want to be skinny and I know that I'm going down a steady downhill battle against getting there the easiest way I can think of. Not eating, or throwing whatever I ate up when my parents aren't looking.
Sometimes I think that I'll scare myself out of it, but I have already started skipping breakfast and not packing a lunch. I binge at supper time, but I feel really guilty after eating and kinda hate myself for it.
How long would I have to be Bulimic or Anorexic before someone was able to tell something was up?
