Can I get over this?
Hi I've been bulimic off and on now for 6 years and I really want to stop but I just don't know how I feel so useless and hopeless sometimes. It started when I was 14 and then when I was 16 I told my parents and asked them to help me but they didn't do anything for me at all. Now I'm 20, have awesome qualifications and an amazing job but I still can't beat it. Everyone knows me as a really bubbly person and I often get asked how I manage to be so happy all the time they just don't know that inside I'm actually just a mess. My boyfriend recently found out and he's trying to help but he really just doesn't understand. I went to see the doctor a month ago and she said she would refer me to see a therapist but I haven't heard anything since and no matter how hard I try I can't seem to last more than 2 weeks before going on another binge and purge cycle. I just feel so desperate and alone, am I ever going to be able to get over this and be happy again????!
