    I also had anorexia nervosa and I´m recently been dignosed with asperger´s . During my teen ages I thought anorexia was the origin of all my troubles but anorexia wasn´t actually the problem.

    Really helpful video; thanks! I have a long history of anorexia nervosa and developed the illness in part because I was teased for being a ‘geek’ at school. I also felt very abnormal and grew to hate myself. I started to starve and over-exercise in part as ‘self punishment’ for being the worthless person I thought I was. If only I had been aware that my autistic characteristics were not merely ‘neuroticism’ – as a doctor suggested when I was 6 yrs old.

    I LOVED this video! I’m in my late 50′s & only learned that I have AS 2 1/2 years ago; yes… if only we had known back then, but “oh well,” let’s make the most of what we know now, right?!

  5. sybeve says:

    Me too!

    Gosh, if only they’d had a social group for me when I was in junior high!
