    Stop It Before Its To Late

    Something I am very ashamed of

    and embarrassed to tell anyone about. I have grown addicted over the last few months. I take too many fiber doses and laxatives in fear of being fat. I felt this was the more natural way to do it but now I am just stuck and very embarrassed to tell anyone that I have a problem.
