Can someone explain how an eating disorder is diagnosed and what happens afterwards?

Mine was diagnosed after a series of interviews. Afterwards therapy started. 

Do you thin you have an eating disorder?

Well, my diagnosis was quite abrupt. I was very blatant with my ED behaviors so my family intervened and took me to the ER. I was diagnosed at that point. After that it's mostly therapy and medical checkups.
