> but if you were me, given that my pdoc and pcp haven't raised any concern, would you bring up the issue?

Yes, I would bring it up with your pdoc -- let him/her know that you've recognized that you don't have to exhibit the full criteria for AN to have a problem. Then I would talk to him/her about what to do about it. See, it's fine to get the diagnosis -- but then you have to figure out what to do about it.

I'm betting you're a good deal younger than I am, in which case I'm gonna go out on a limb here and offer some heart-felt advice based on my own experiences: Get help now. Things only get worse, it's associated with some other pretty severe psychiatric problems, it makes treating any sort of mood disorder much more difficult, etc. It's worth getting the help now, and not backing off that help when it gets hard.

If you want help finding resources to treat eating disorders in your area, feel free to BabbleMail me and I'll send you out some suggestions. If you send me your general location, I can probably find you some names.

Good luck.
