Hi. I was wondering if any other female aspies had problems with eating disorders. I u sed to have an eating disorder, but I've recovered. One thing I've noticed is a lot of the female aspies I've met have had some problems with anorexia or bulimia. I was wondering if this was a coincidence or something that had to do with the AS.

Food control topic

I had a very severe case as a teen, trying to slow my physical maturation. I did this for two years until I left home.

Other reasons include control and depression/anger.

I had some problems a few years ago.

Here's an article.
