Comment from: Dying inside, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: December 14

I have had bulimia for about 6 to 7 years. I do not like myself my looks or my body. I am a mom of 3 beautiful kids 2 boys and a girl my daughter is 14 and I so don't want her to ever be like me. I binge and purge everyday anywhere from 3 to 6 times a day. I use laxatives a lot. My body is starting to feel really weak. I know I am being selfish because I am going to die from this one day and my kids will not have a mom. I do not like doing it but I love to eat and eat a lot of whatever I want and not get fat.

I was bulimic last year. I would eat a big meal then feel fat and guilty. So to loose that weight I would fast by not eating lunch or breakfast for a couple weeks. My parents didn't know because I would always eat dinner.

Comment from: 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: November 11

I am 19 years old and have had a problem with food for as long as I can remember. I have this thing where whatever I eat makes me feel like I have put on weight, so I go on these days where I would eat loads and then be sick and some days I would eat nothing. I don't have anyone to turn to and I feel it's controlling me I don't think it will ever end.
