There has been several times over the last 2 years that I have made myself throw up because I ate some food I really didn't want, then I would drinking two glasses of water fast once until I felt like I was going to get sick I would stick anything i could use to make myself throw up. The problem is one day of getting sick 2 or 3 times makes the next 2 days where I cant stomach to eat any thing. so I don't cause i know as long as I feel sick I will make myself be sick, hoping that the balance in my body will go back to normal. Is this a mild form of an eating disorder, and how can I control it more?View Thread
How come when things start to look like there getting better something else happens? Lately I just don't feel hungry. Last time this happened It only took short period of time before I felt sick every time I would eat. Tonight I took a baby lax, my nightly meds of Buspar and Depakote er and downed a water pill. I forced myself to eat a little bit, drank two tall glasses of water, now I feel like I'm going to be sick. I have never had a problem with food until a couple of months ago. I just recently got my Self- Injury behavior under control or as best I can. How long will this last and will it get worse. I know my eating habits can a symptom of anyone of my disorders, I don't think it's come to that yet but all the same I need some advice.View Thread
To LOVERLY LAURIE.........This week 5-16-5-20 has been very busy with pre k graduations at work. It's been ok, better than last, I took myself off one of my meds, Very stupid mistake. So back on that medicine I eat when I feel like it which is about one meal and 2 snacks a day. supposed to eat at least 1500 calories a day. I average about 987 a day. I did email my therapist and I followed up with a phone call to him this week. He is aware of the things that have been happening. At least I drinking plenty of water. I hope next week gets betterView Thread
Well it's been over a month since this new eating habit started. Recently i have back for a medicine check-up, the nurse wasn't happy with what i had to say( that i had been mixing water pills, laxitives or whatever I could to make me throw up. I let her know that half the time i eat cause it's meal time , not really wanting to eat, So i said if I don't want it there i get rid of it, just like my cutting ,l want to be in control of it so I try not to put myself where I will find a need to do it, Not that easy with food. Also by throwing up it messes up my meds. She said she needed to find my weight chart from my last visit. I currently lost 8 pounds in a week and 2 days. I go for my next medicine check in july. I got to get out of this rut.View Thread
Well I made it through today considering how ruff last night was. fear hit me when i was trying to grasp for air in between throwing up, Not only did I get sick, but it messed up my prescription medicines as well, which threw all my disorders into a spin. I think the smartest thing I did today was get rid of everything I took, You see I'm a cutter trying to control my Self- Injury behavior and if that had been factored into everything last night I don't think things would have gotten more manageable today. I hope this is not something that could happen again. I hope.View Thread
I was diagnosed with major Depressive Disorder and Boarder line Personality Disorder, followed by 14 years of Self Injury, recently I have been in therapy for about a year. Recently I have been going back and forth with which medicine is best to treat my disorders, Then about 2 months ago I noticed I wasn't eating as much or I was feeling like I was going to be sick, none of this due to the medicines or not eating like I used to. My mind set when it comes to food has changed. I'm the type of person that if I feel like I'm going to be sick I would rather make myself throw up to get the feeling over with. My question is when does it become an eating disorder? I have enough to deal with I really don't need this to. I am as of right now not practicing Self Injury ( cutting ) could this new issue be because I'm not cutting? if so How do I not replace one for the other? Help.View Thread

Well it's the end of a very long week, The kind of week where you should have just stayed in bed. I did catch up with my nurse at the clinic, we had to go over my paper work for medicine assistants program, of course she had to if the depakote is working, it is however I told her I was making myself throw up after i ate cause i felt like i was going to anyways, she said that wasn't a good enough reason. So today I had to eat through out the day like i would normally do and fight past needing to throw up after i ate. the morning went ok at lunch time it was bad,but I'm glad to say that I fought past it, I kept telling myself that my hands are tied and I wasn't going to use them to throw up. Since then I have eaten an afternoon snack and a late dinner, I feel ok for right now. There is nobody in the house to watch like at work, I will have to trust myself and hope each day gets betterView Thread

No I sort of told him in a somewhat short e mail. I won't be able to see him again until April, three of the medicines I have been on for over 6 months, they have never bothered me. I was hoping this new thing wasn't in anyway connected to me not cutting, I don't need any more trigger things, nor do I need a negative activity to sud in for another negative activity. I was just looking for some answers, I have to drop some paper work off at their office tomarrow I will talk to the nurse about it thanks.View Thread
