    Why

    I am thirty years old and I have been bulimic since I was 15. It all started when I ate a whole bag of cheddar sour cream chips. Dang those things were so good...lol! I felt like a fat cow and I knew this girl who threw up her food so I tried it. OMG it felt soooo good to me...

    I Stuffed My Face I Ate Until I Couldn't Take

    It Anymore...As I Was About To Purge It All Out I Remembered A Promise That I Made To Someone That I Love So Very Much. At That Moment I Took A Deep Breath And Let It All Out. There Was Blood And Puke Everywhere As I Was Getting Up I Felt My Heart Beat Getting Faster And Faster...

    You Won't Do This Again

    That's what I tell myself every time I find myself there, huddled in the corner of the bathroom. I know I should probably get up and brush my teeth. I've heard all the horror stories of what throwing up can do to you. That scares me too. Not enough to make me quit. Instead I just...

    I need help. I purge every time I feel gross.

    Even if I didn't binge. If I weigh too much one day I will restrict food until I break down and binge then I purge it all. If someone says something mean to me I purge. I know it's gonna start being really bad for my health but I can't stop

    Well, I was for years

    but I've really changed my life for the better to a healthy lifestyle. It wasn't easy. I got lucky. Sometimes I do have the urge to revert when I have degrading thoughts of how I could be so much smaller and how 3-4 days a week of exercise isn't enough, but then I remember I'm a...

    I Am Bulimia

    It gives me a high, a sense of accomplishment. Food is evil. Throwing up is like throwing out all the evil, it's like all bad energy is leaving your body, you feel refreshed and new. people say bulimia is like a prison or like a hell, but bulimia is my heaven. Hell is eating...

    Had a sandwich really late.

    Felt immense anger at myself. Couldn't purge. Physically wouldn't work. Strange. But stranger still found myself cursing at myself that "you won". But really in the battle I DID WIN. Maybe by default. But in the scheme of life I won. But in my head I didn't win. I wanted it to...

    4 months then it'll be 2 years.

    It's weird because I thought I'd only do it for a few months, a year the absolute max. And now it's coming to two years... I used to think it was a blessing as in the first year I lost more than a third of my body weight. But in the 2nd my weight fluctuates between 55-65kg, it's...

    my bulimic attitude makes me feel more depressed

    than i already am. It feels so difficult, believing that I can't talk to my family about it because I'm scared that if they knew about it then i'd feel even more depressed. So I chose to suffer in silence because I feel like no one else understands me. But I know that I need...

    For the simplest reasons. First they'll start yelling at me and making me feel bad for something I have no control of, they'll make everything about them and tell me how they get me what I want and **** "isn't that enough?" None of parents nor my family will understand that...

    Mia took over my life at 12, an early developer, I had curves that I just did not want. Mia was easy for me. I didn't eat at school, and since my mum worked a lot, I could easily eat dinner and throw it up. No one noticed a thing. I beat Mia at 14 after passing out once too many...

    I am an Addict. I love the feeling in my throat

    when food comes out. I love the feeling of my heart pounding; the tears that roll down my cheeks. I love how cold my body gets after an hour of throwing up, I love the cold. I am Addicted and I can't stop. No, I won't stop. and that's the problem. I just love it too much.

    My Bulimia

    Recovery. My Battle Against Bully-mia.

    I am a bulimic. I am also a type one diabetic. I went to treatment at UCLA for two months. It helped but bulimia isn't something that just goes away. Bulimia isn't glamorous at all, although some people make it out to be like that. Bulimia isn't what people do to just "lose...

    Bulimia doesn't mean eating whatever you want

    and still getting skinny. For me at least, it means having a full-blown addiction to food. The law of addiction states that "administration of a drug to an addict will cause reestablishment of chemical dependence upon the addictive substance." So basically, if you slip up, you...

    When I was 8 I suffered from anorexia,

    I recovered. But when I was in 9th grade I started with bulimia, I stopped 'cause I got scared when I saw blood, sometimes when I get nervous I do it again, but in reality I can't stop.
