Have any of you gained weight from your ED?

Possible Trigger Warning

I read a few articles about how eating disorders such as bulimia or anorexia can actually make you gain weight... This thought makes me really anxious. My desire to lose weight wasn't the only thing that eventually led to my ED. Control and many other factors played into it as well, but over time my weight has become a big problem for me... I've been trying to stop purging lately because I've been experiencing some health problems as a result, but the only reason I haven't stopped is because I keep eating a lot of unhealthy food, and I don't want to gain weight... I got worried when I heard that it can cause weight gain because I haven't lost any weight since I started purging... Have any of you gained weight from your ED? Any response is appreciated. Thanks.

Bulmia can go on for a long time without intervention because it takes longer for weight loss to appear. You wouldn’t gain weight but it would make you even sicker.
