will this help? - December 19th 2010, 11:25 PM

okay, so i have like really bad bulimia problems... i binge and purge about twice a day, and most of the time i empty my stomach all the way. if i dont, i feel really stuffed and i hate it.
then the other problem is that the only way for me to stop compulsively eating is to just not eat. i will either eat too much or not at all.

i recently came up with a great idea (that will also let me keep loosing weight) so that i can stop this: go on a really restrictive diet. i mean its not ideal, but i feel that it is definately a step forward: it will be a lot easier to not puke, and ill be eating food.

so yeah, should i do it?

I would not recommend it. The problem is a mental illness; it is incredibly hard to break something like that all by yourself. And since you are already bulimic, what you are suggesting may lead to full-blown anorexia. You have the mindframe for it and you need to realize this isn't healthy. You might lead to cycles between bulimia and anorexia with what you are suggesting, and that won't help at all. The problem is your relationship with food. Get help, talk to someone, do whatever you need to to get it fixed. But make sure you address the problem, not ignore it.

If you ever need to talk, feel free to PM me!

No. It is not a step in the right direction. AN and Bulimia are both deadly diseases... trading one for another doesn't solve any problem as both are extremely dangerous.

Maybe talk to a councilor or therapist? In all honesty, not every therapist works for everyone (in the past, I had one I ABSOLUTELY HATED and but was perfect for another friend and vice-versa). So don't give up if one therapist seems terrible.
