Overweight Bulimic

Hi,I'm 37 and have been bulimic since I was twenty...at first I lost lots of weight...but in the last few years I have gained a lot of weight...but yet I still throw up...I hate the feeling of being really full probably from all the years of throwing up...even still now when I eat something unhealthy I just have an overwhelming sense to throw up...I am fed up with this cycle...I would love to just eat like a normal person but find it so hard not to purge.
I would love to talk to people in similar situations r someone who has overcome there urges to purge...I feel like I'm at a point in my life where I really want to stop.

I'm in a similar boat and am so fed up with feeling ruled by not being able to eat properly and feel at my age (36) it;'s a bit pathetic. Not saying you are or should be obv, it's my own opinion on me- it started when I was 23 and I'm just so tired by it all now- the physical and mental aspect as well as the secrecy from loved ones :( I had stopped for maybe 2.5/3 years but once started again it was like I never stopped in how quickly it took hold again.
Have you sought help? I would love to but am scared.
