I have been battling Bulimia for almost a year now. I am in therapy,but I have been too afraid to bring it up for discussion. I am all of a sudden for conscious about my body, my weight keep fluctuating.
I feel so fat but everyone tells me I am not. I can't just accept myself for who I am
I eat something, and sometimes I just keep it in, but then other times I have to throw up because I am overwhelmed with guilt about the last few times that I didn't throw up. I am so fearful that even in my adulthood I will still not be able to eat properly.

Hey, well, I can sympathize with you. Although, I havent battled constant bulimia...but for a year I have battled bulimia on and off. Sometimes more than others. I feel the same way, sometimes I will eat and feel really guilty and I just have to go throw up. And I keep on.... Sometimes I think about it yet I continue ot eat...

But, if you need to talk about it, Im here for you. You can email me or talk on here or whatever. If you ever need/want to. Take Care
Lyrica(14 months) and Paxil(about 6+- months)-both helping some, but would like to see better results

Hi Taryn,

Try to get this out for discussion. It sounds like something that can help you. You know that it isn't healthy, in many ways. I think that you can do this.

Bringing it up to us is a big step. You are on your way to recovery. I know that you can do this. It might take some rehab, learning to look at food differently and your life differently. You can get better sweetie, just keep on trying.

Keep posting and let us know how things are going with you.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

Thank you all for your consideration. I think I will try and bring this up with my therapist.

Hi Taryn,

I agree if you can get this topic on the table for discussion I think you will be surprised how much better you will feel.

It is important for you to get help with this issue.  You have been brave bringing it up here.  Keep talking to us too.
