@22 That statement was just ridiculous. The OP can not help that her sternum sticks out, and I know this because my boyfriend of 3 years has a similar issue. Only his sternum was removed at an early age and with age, his body grew and he had to have many of his ribs broken and moved several times. Because of this, his collar bone protrudes and he can never have pecked muscles. My boyfriend is NOT ugly. He is the most attractive man I have ever met, body and soul. You disgust me.

It's called pectus excavatum, I was born with it and had 5 surgeries to fix it, but it's still something you're pretty much stuck with no matter what...

I knew a person who actually had an eating disorder, she was stick thin and slowly killing herself, if someone didn't step in and try to help her she would have kept ruining her health.
so when you say that it's just a bunch of fatties trying to bitch at you for exercising, that's not the kind if eating disorder we're talking about. your healthy and thin in a good way, some people just can't follow the same path and need help doing that.

But you're talking about a girl who had a real eating disorder and actually needed help.
I'm talking about fatties bitching at perfectly normal girls, just because the girls eat healthy and exercise, and as a result are not fat, which angers the fatties thus bitching at them.
It's completely different situations.

In cases of REAL eating disorders, it should be obvious that it's an issue, it can't be mistaken. The problem is that nowadays there's countless people bitching at nonexistent "eating disorders" that are just in fat people's minds.
Like the Op's case, which wasn't an eating disorder, or like the cases I mentioned.


So we should wait to confront someone about an eating disorder until it becomes dangerously obvious? Why not save a friend months or years of mental, emotional, and physical pain and try to catch it early?

How? lol. That is such a ridiculous thing to say. Her rib cage is deformed. No amount of extra boobs is going to fix the SHAPE OF HER RIBCAGE. My goodness.

I have a slight deformity in my sternum as well. Whenever I went to the doctor she told me that the only way to fix it was breast implants. I was nine.

199, that's awful. That nine year old was faced with that news. I know it depends on the deformity, but generally, being non threatening to health, a brace is considered to push different areas back into place, and even out your chest.

Why would breast implants help? They wouldn't FIX her sternum.

It's awesome that the OP is confident enough to show it off instead of hiding it away now.
Tell your room mate to get out of your business...
All she is a room mate...
I doubt SHE would be the one you would go to first if you realized you DID have a problem with an E/D and wanted to fix it.

If the OP wanted breast implants, she would have gotten them awhile ago. The point is that she was working on becoming comfortable with her body, being that her ribcage is deformed so much that her sternum sticks out of her chest. But like I said, I don't think that the OP wants breast implants, she just wants to be comfortable in her own skin.

I don't think the OP should tell the roommate to mind her own business, a roommate is probably going to see you more often than some of your closest friends. So it makes since that she might notice an eating disorder, even if she is mistaken, and she should try to talk about it. Most people with an eating disorder aren't going to go to anyone for help, because they don't see themselves as having a problem.
