    It Is Good To Say This

    Very good indeed. "WAS" is the main word here. I was bulimic, but not any more. I occasionally have the thoughts. When I feel really emotional is the hardest. But in the last couple of weeks I have been an emotional wreck, and I didn't make myself sick. I always feared...

    Beginning Of The End

    I started purging after 2 key events in one day. I suppose I was already under enormous pressure to fit the mold by my parents, the church, and the church-school. Event #1 My "pretty" friend making herself vomit before P.E. so she wouldn't vomit during P.E. (who has P.E. AFTER...

    I can't remember how I discovered the idea of

    vomiting after every meal to lose weight. I no longer regurgitate my food but I still have thoughts about it and how it use to make me feel and honestly I miss it, but I know it's bad. I hate feeling full or just having food in me and I'm scared of gaining back on the weight. I...

    I Still Am Bulemic.

    It doesn't go away. And, I did it again. I don't puke. I just know what makes my body poop, and, I can very easily get rid of most I eat when I binge. The thing is, the last two times I went Bulemic, I didn't know it. The second time, I only realized I had gone bulemic, again...

    I'm recovered. I do believe.

    It's been about 5 months since I last purged or cut. And I really don't feel the need to. Though lately I've been feeling kinda fat.

    I Was Different

    I was bulimic. Twice. But I wasn't a bulimic in the way that I wanted to get skinny again. I was what me and my friend called a "bulemo". I essentially was an emo, except instead of cutting myself, I made myself throw up. I was 'friends' with someone I didn't like that much...

    Throw Those Guts Up...

    There's no need for my personal gory details, everyone knows what bulimia is, and we are all the same in our disease. You eat, then you throw it up because you can't handle the fact that it is inside you and creating fat on your ***. It consumes you inside and out, It stretches...

    Life Gets Better

    Around my seventh grade year I discovered I wasn't very happy with the way my body looked, so I began purging. I was bulimic for 3 years.. I learned that I have to love myself for who I am, because deep down I am beautiful.

    and even though I have the best of friends. Only through writing can I voice my experience. If you want me to tell you where it started, I can't. I don't know. I couldn't even tell you when it ended. I was sexually harassed by my sisters boyfriend. I think that had a lot to do...
