    3: I was really thin
    4: I couldn't breathe well
    5: I was yellow

    When you said 'cardiac arrhythmia or heart attack' at 2:15, did you actually mean 'myocardial infarction'? In my very brief searching, cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) seems to be a separate condition but can play a part in or be a result of a previous heart attack.

    I didn’t eat for 2 weeks once. After 4-5 days you stop feeling hungry and don’t have any appetite. I drank a lot of water, herbal tea, and coffee. I could’ve taken the pain but the physical exhaustion of trying to function with a full time job was impossible. I did nothing but stare into the distance. It was a bad time in my life. Anorexia is hell.

    people with eating disorders in the comments laughing about this video, saying that they're watching it for "fun", or the people that are making ED jokes or even the people that are "bragging" about an ED and the people that are relating need to seriously stop. if you SERIOUSLY had one, you wouldn't be hyping it up in the comments. that's just attention seeking. EDs are serious, not a trend or something to laugh about. "oh i haven't eaten in DAYS, this video doesn't mean anything." just stop. i honestly hope that you get better, but triggering and influencing people that read your words is a terrible thing to do.

    Anorexia happens.... or if like me, youve taken diet pills in the past known as amphetimines or other stimulants with ephedrine or pseudoephedrine then youre able to go up to three days without eating as long as you drink fluids and liquid foods like smoothies but you tend to throw up the food aswell. Headaches are common as are joint pains and tiredness following a crash. Dehydration is a silent killer because so many people are unaware of it happening to them.....
