Thank You Bulimia?Hi all! I'm new to this website and support group so hello my fellow bulimics and friends!
I have struggled with food and my body image my entire life. I grew up in an emotionally abusive household and learned to discredit my emotions and needs. I also made friendships with people that should have never been my friends. I became someone I was not and lost sight of the beautiful person I was created to be.
I recently moved out of the house and had literally every security blanket I was grasping onto ripped away from me. I was depending upon myself yet I didn't know who that was. So, I slowly progressed to eating more and before I knew it, throwing up the massive amounts of food to stay skinny. My thoughts were that I had to remain skinny for boys to like me. That sounds so stupid in writing!
After I progressed into bulimia, I knew I needed help. I walked into an Overeaters' Anonymous meeting and am currently working on my recovery. Part of my recovery is connecting with others like me and I couldn't be happier to hear from you all on the struggles and triumphs that we share.
So, I've decided every time I desire to overeat/purge, I will instead write to you all. Together we can do what we could never do alone! Hope to hear from some of you soon.
