Beating my addiction
Though I am 49 and have been struggling with bulimia and laxative abuse since my teens, I have been able to live the majority of my life “clean.” But age can sneak up on you. Your metabolism slows. Even though I exercise strenuously and regularly, my body has changed. So about three years ago, my binging and laxative abuse got way out of control. A few weeks ago, I decided that enough was enough. I don’t want to be this person, to lack self control, to destroy my health… I want to accept myself and to do my best to stay in shape through healthful living. I am beyond bloated because I’m used to getting rid of the food asap. This feels awful. But I am determined to fight this. This is the first time that I’ve ever admitted to my problem. I’m going to seek help because I believe that the accountability will help me to succeed.
