Anxiety Attacks and bulimia - I Beat Them Both... So can you!

bulimia dangers
Myself, my dad and my mom, shortly after
I recovered from bulimia :)

Anxiety attacks and bulimia come hand in hand...

I remember sitting in the darkness - sobbing. My body shaking and and my lungs gasping for breath...

My heart pounding and my pores sweating...

My mom sitting there, helpless, watching her daughter 'lose her mind'...

 

She didn't know about my bulimia... She didn't know what caused my 'episodes'...

How could I possibly tell her? I felt like a crazy person... I didn't understand it myself... How could I expect her to?

For 1/2 my life - I had suffered in silence...

I had hidden my dark bulimic secret from everybody...

Never... Not even once - had I told anyone.

Bulimia was my secret... A secret that I thought I'd have to live with - alone - forever... Until it eventually took my life...

Looking back now, I can see clearly why my anxiety attacks and bulimia came hand in hand...

I had so many secrets, so much sadness and shame... All of it accumulating, filling every inch of my body - until I just couldn't take it...

My bulimia manifested itself into anxiety attacks on a regular basis... And, it was at these times that I realized just how badly bulimia was effecting me...

It was turning me into a nervous wreck.

I was constantly worrying that somebody would 'figure it out'... That they would put two and two together...

"Shaye's always eating, is incredibly sensitive about food, is skinny and has sores on her mouth... A-ha! She's bulimic!"

My worse nightmare - realized.

In fact, even the thought of having my secret discovered set my anxiety attacks and bulimia off... First I'd get the shakes, then the sweats, then the pounding heart... And then, all this anxiety would drive me into a massive binge and purge session.

I felt helpless... I remember sitting in the shower - sobbing and screaming - asking myself "What have I become?"

I felt like there was no way out. I felt stuck... Forever.

All I knew was bulimia - and the cold, lonely world I'd created to hide it.

 

I wish I had Known then, what I know now...
(You CAN Beat Your Anxiety Attacks and Bulimia!)

At the age of 20 - after having suffered from bulimia for over 1/2 my life - I decided enough was enough...

Recovery seemed like a distant dream... Like something foreign that didn't really belong to me...

BUT, I decided that no matter what, I would keep putting one foot in front of the other until bulimia recovery was mine...

That was the start of a difficult - but beautiful journey... A journey that ultimately lead me out of the darkness and into the light.

I had forgotten how beautiful life was...

I'd forgotten everything...

But, piece by piece, during my recovery journey, I remembered it all - and more!

Eventually, I said goodbye to the anxiety attacks and bulimia - and I said hello to my new and beautiful life.

 

Recovery and Happiness is Yours for the taking...

It's been nearly 7 years since I discovered this beautiful new life and I know it's not going anywhere... It's mine now - forever!

This world has an abundance of beauty and happiness... and, it's here for the taking.

So, what are you waiting for? Take your share! :)

Do just one thing today that is a positive step forward towards your recovery...

Take the plunge and go for it - I swear to God you won't regret it! You could...

What you decide to do is up to you...

I can promise you though, I never regretted taking bulimia recovery action! It leads to a beautiful life free from anxiety attacks and bulimia :)

Wishing you all the best in this beautiful journey to recovery!
