^ agreed. I'm not borderline, but that doesn't mean that I don't feel pain, and that SI is helpful with that sometimes.
Only teens? Really?!

The DSM does specify amenhorea in FEMALES, if your male then you get to miss that category. I don't think it's sexist, it's a phenomenon that happens to females, men can still have refusal to mantain healthy body weight, low bmi and eating disordered behaviours. Where I live it's more or less levelled out with the males / females with MI. Inpatient I see more young males, and more older females, but that's a really small and biased study. I have several guy friends on psych meds, and no girl friends. It's sad that stigma against males still exists in some places.
I know. It was sarcasm.
