  • I ask because I have bulimia. When I first started purging I didn't really think too much of it, just everyonce in awhile when I felt like I ate too much. About 4 months ago it got to the point that I started throwing up about once a day. Now I throw up anywhere from 2-4 times a day. I can't stand the feeling of food in my stomach. I'm not an unhealthy weight at all. I would say 130 pounds and 5 foot 6. I'm just terrified of getting fat again. I just get scared that eating and letting that food sit in there is just going to add pounds to my figure. Even when I work out I still throw up. I'm just wondering if anyone else goes through these thoughts and if, like me, it doesn't seem to affect your life at all.

  • I have both anerexia and bulimia. I have suffored from these since i was about 15. I am recovering right now, it has been about 2 years since i've done anything. I had to see a therapist and it helped a lot. I also got pregnant with my daughter around the same time and that is what helped me the most. I know i could slip back into my old ways easy but if i ever have any thought about it i talk to my family. They keep me strong.

  • There is a group on here for moms with bulimia you should check it out, it has helped me a lot. I feel the same way you do, i can't stand the feeling of food in my stomache. I want to get pregnant again so after i eat i have been trying to stay busy so i wont purge. It is a daily battle for me. It is a disease and i have talked to my dr and gotten counseling but i still can't help it sometimes. I know exactly how you feel.
