However, I have not seen her in years, and back in the sandbox I didn't show any symptoms of having an eating disorder; I've left her in the dark about it for all these years. We've been distanced for quite some time and have only kept in touch using facebook. We will become roommates soon, and I'm not sure if I should tell her about my disorder.
Would you tell your roommate if you had an eating disorder?
Also, having an eating disorder can be a tremendous inconvenience to other people in addition to the individual with the illness. Assuming the role of my friend, do you think you would honestly feel comfortable sharing a flat with someone like me?
