- I have had many complications from my anorexia. I thank god that now I am recovered, but, for over 5 years, I did not have my period which made it very difficult to conceive although I now have 3 beautiful grown boys. I did, however, develop osteoporosis, severe arthritis, and rA and at 43 had both of my knees replaced after years of over-excersising. I also have had a lot of problems with my vision,blood pressure and some other ailments. I am grateful to be alive though.
