Question Question - March 21st 2013, 09:00 PM

I was wondering if throwing up after a normal or after eating fat food high on calories is ok or seen as bulimia ? Binging on purpose because you know you can throw up is a bulimic symptom or not really ?
Thank u

Yes it can be considered a bulimic symptom, but if its not on purpose then i dont think it would be. If you dont mind me asking is this something you do or know someone that does that? (you don't have to answer)

It's definately a bulimic symptom.
Go talk to you doctor about it, so you can get some help.
You need help.

Re: Question - March 26th 2013, 06:23 PM

So, to answer your question- yes. It's a bulimic symptom. There is a difference between throwing up because you accidentally ate too much (which is normal and can happen) and purposefully eating too much because you know you're going to throw up. The difference is one is on purpose, the other is not. Anything you do to your body on purpose that can cause harm is self harm. In this case, it's bulimia. You've got the same mind set that those with ED's have. That's something to note.

Finding the courage to talk to someone is difficult. If talking about this was comfortable, it really wouldn't be a problem. This is because it's dangerous to you and you're purposefully causing yourself harm, which indicates that there are some mental health concerns, which means it's your secret way of coping with pain, which means that it will be uncomfortable to talk about. BUT. Eating disorders are nothing but a long slow road to death. And that should be a major concern for you. If you could manage and beat this on your own, you probably would have by now. Moral is- no matter how uncomfortable it is to talk to someone, it might be necessary to survive. You deserve way more than what your ED will ever give you.
