LOL I thought I was recovered. I was bulimic... Then anorexic.... Then "bulimerexic"... Apparently after battling this crap for 10+ years I just got creative. I went to 8 rehabs, tried the crystal meth diet, and almost killed myself. 2 years ago, I was told I was going into early menapause after not having a period for so long and I just decided it was time to stop. I was 24. Here I am at 26, finishing my psych degree (I know, I'm on the 12 year plan apparently) and I got certified in life coaching and built a site around teens struggling with this. I don't know if it was moving in with my boyfriend, trying to actually accomplish something for once, or just me being myself, but I started throwing up again. Not regularily, but when I get drastically stressed. My health is beginning to deteriorate and my body has had enough of this. If I vomit once, my day, night, and the following 24 hours seem to be ruined. I get exhausted, pains in my stomach, and have trouble keeping anything down though I do get hungry. I was fine for 2 years... Can anyone relate or give me some kind of feedback? Should I quit my pursuit to help other people?? I thought I'd be the best clinical therapist because I truly know what it's like and now I just feel like a failure.... AAAAAH. Also, I thought I had strep throat last night, but I don't have a fever. Is is possible that I my ears, nose, and throat hurt so bad because I have been throwing up? I've already had to go to the ER from my throat bleeding...View Thread
I'm not a doctor, but after being bulimic for what feels like my entire life... I don't know. I know for a fact that after "recovering" I still have little lapses every once in awhile and I am in PAIN the next day. My stomach feels like it's about to explode and I have difficulty keeping down food. When this was a regular thing I didn't notice, but now I only throw up when I'm so overwhelmed I literally can't help it. My advice is to STOP, like NOW. I'll help you... I'm a life coach that deals with this kind of stuff and am more in the research mode than business so it would be free. Just reply back if you want to stop otherwise you will end up with all kinds of problems... I did.View Thread
