Going to college in the fall - June 12th 2010, 06:06 PM

I have a record of trying to purge in the past(never actually managed to but tried). I am going off to college in the fall to live on campus. Due to having a wheelchair it would not be safe for me to have a roommate; since I will be in a room by myself; I am afraid I will start to try again.

Any tips?

Is there anyone you could call when you feel the need to purge? A good friend is sometimes the best distraction from anything ED-related. :)
You could maybe go out and sit by yourself for a while, just to sort through your thoughts.

You are stronger than this.

Maybe I will need to find a friend at college. Now however I am going to a Christian college, and I talked to some people there about it and they did say they offer small groups to talk about such issues. I am mostly afraid of being in my room by MYSELF after meals.

Hey Emily,

You could try to find some friends to eat with and then hang out with after you eat. Since you will have a single room, you could always hang out with friends in your room or even just on campus. Distracting yourself after you eat will help keep you from purging. Just hang in there.
