I Need Help

I'm almost 16. And I just joined this group. I'm a sophomore in high school and I haven't been dealing with bulimia for as long as some of you. I don't want to explain my whole life story and I don't want pity. But I am overweight and I began suffering in summer with eating disorders. Over summer I ate nothing, it really messed me up. But when I started going to school again I started to eat again. And recently It became to much for me and I started not eating and when I did I would binge and then purge. I purge at least twice a day. And I know I am sick and need help but I can't help but think that I can control it and I can stop anytime I want.

Listen to me. I have had bulimia for 6 years. I started in middle school and it was the worst decision of my life. It doesnt matter how long youve had it, it is still serious. PLEASE, get help now. i wish i wouldve. If you wait too long its almost impossible. The problem for me is mental.. and it will get worse... PLEASE.. reach out to a teacher/parent. they may not understand like you think because they may not be familiar with it. I thought the sae thing.. that i could control it.. and once i got skinny enough or wanted to stop i could, but you cant. you really cant. Honey it controls you. and it will only get worse. please seek help, i beg you. i dont want you to suffer through what i have. i promise, no matter how many pounds you lose, you will never be fully happy.
