I suffer from bulimia nervosa. For those of you who do not know, this is an eating disorder.
Lately, with pressure from my recruiters to stay underweight, I started having more binging attacks. It finally got to the point that one night when we were exercising with [the recruiters], my body couldn't handle the stress of the workout and I collapsed on the field. All I remember was feeling sick and dizzy then waking up on my back with cold water bottles under my arms and a wet shirt on my forehead to cool me off.
My recruiters finally got to the source of the problem and informed me that if it ever happened again, they were going to dismiss me from the Delayed Entry Program which would mean I would not be leaving for boot camp and becoming a Marine.
I have been getting better, but if I have a binging attack and purge afterward, I don't even bother exercising because I don't want that to happen again.

This is a serious problem...I used to suffer from anorexia and was almost hopitalized for it, its something you need to deal with. I am sorry that you are going through this. I will pray for you.
