Hello Erika,
The good thing is that you are recognizing that you have a problem. This is where all recovery begins. I am not sure what advice to give about this type of situation but there are many people on this forum that would know. But it will all be okay in the end.

Hey there.

Sorry to hear that you're not doing so well. But you did a good thing by reaching out to us. Recognising you need help, and then asking for it, is hard to do, but you've done it. That shows you're willing, and ready, to fight back against your eating disorder.

Here is a list of resources relating to eating disorders, which you might find helpful.

Take care. xx

Hey there,

I am glad you have opened up to us on here. Talking about this kind of stuff is always a great first step and it can really help you get things in perspective? Can I ask why you feel the need to make yourself sick after you eat? Sometimes if we can identify the feelings behind it we can slowly work on finding alternatives to the behavior.

Have you thought of seeking help for this? I know that is scary but the more people you let into this and the more people you get support from the better. The ED feeds off of our feelings of loneliness and despair. Our ED's try and keep us from letting go of this secret so that we can continue feeling isolated. Break away from your ED and speak out.

If you need to talk feel free to pm me.
