I just don’t fit in the box …

Why is it that you have to be dangerously overweight or underweight to be considered to have an eating disorder? Is there a “niche” for “rather more than healthily overweight but less than morbidly obese, yet utterly desperate and ready to use the carving knife to chop bits off” category? That would be handy, especially if it came in my age group (30-ish ..), and allowed for me to cry heartily over the mirror and get very drunk without anyone bothering me.

I think i’ll stay in and plead with someone to take the kids tomorrow, because I just can’t face life.
