Bulimia and Anorexia
by Emily Stones
(South San Francisco, CA)
I am 18 years old and developed eating disorder when I was 9. One of my family friends made a comment that I was getting bigger so I freaked out and started eating less. My mom started worrying and forced me to eat but I secretly started vomiting my food. I stopped that after few months but then my dad started abusing my mom, and took all the money. We moved to a new place and did not have a home to live in. we were thrown in the streets. That's when my bulimia got wist. I have been bulimic for about 4 years now and I'm ready to stop. I have't purged for a week now. I still count calories and always think about food. I exercise every day, if I don't exercise, I usually restrict my calorie intake. I don't know what do. After throwing up constantly, one day I threw up some blood and have been having chest pain since. I can't enjoy high caloric foods or other sugary treats. I am always too busy thinking and counting how much food I consume. I only eat about X calories a day and weight about X pounds. I cant imagine myself eating like a normal person. Now my chest hurts when I take a deep breath.
