Isn't this a great diagnosis. Especially for those who feel ashamed, or scared, or embarressed. "Not otherwise specified".. It is the clinical definition for those who don't fit the cookie-cutter
qualifications specified by the DSM-IV
The girl who has all the symptoms of anorexia
, but still gets her period. Or the girl who is some anorexic, and some bulimic symptoms, but doesn't meet all the qualifications for both.
