so I was heavy as a child. When I turned fifteen. My cousin suggested that i try to throw up what I eat so I can lose weight.. I was desperate. so I started sticking my fingers down my throat to force myself to barf all I eat.. I dont' remember if it helped me lose weight then. but it became a licence to eat. Why NOT eat? since you are going to throw it up anyways , it's like you didn't eat at all.
My Mom.. when she saw me eat. she would say, if I were you , I would go throw it up so you wouldn't gain more weight... Lovely dont' you think .. I never knew the term bulimic.. not till I was twenty nine.. and I was still binge eating and throwing up..
( see bottom)

I have to agree with the other two posters. Having an eating disorder for such a long time can do a lot of harm to your body. You likely don't even know all of the things wrong with you (inside), nor do you know what the consequences going forward are. One of the first things I would say is to start to distance yourself from those that trigger your disorder. I would distance myself from my mother if she was promoting throwing up instead of a steady diet. You don't want your kids to learn that this is normal and this is what they should do when they grow older. Even if you have such self loathing that you can't seem to look for help for yourself, look for it because your kids need you. What would you want your own child to do? Continue down the same path that you know will end badly, or get the help they need? Give yourself the same chance at life.
