Patient : Hello!
I am 20 years old, weigh 80 pounds and feeling anorexic. People call me anorexic but I must admit I look like one. But I don't feel being insecure or have symptoms of an anorexic person. All I want is to eat more and gain weight, have a normal figure, and be confident. Almost opposite to what an anorexic do. But I have an anorexic image. I'm so thin no matter how much I eat.
I have attached an image. But that's not me, I just look almost the same figure as that lady.
So, what I want to know is am I being anorexic? If not, what is this illness called? If yes, what am I gonna do?
