I don't think I could tell anyone I'm Bulimic. I relate to a great deal of what I've read here and I've known for some time that I'm no longer in control. But, I've always taken pride in my strength more than anything and I don't think I can admit to anyone in my life that I'm struggling with something that people (including myself most of the time) consider to be a product of vanity. As a teenager I self mutilated and still hide the scars to avoid talking about it. At the time I was very depressed and as my life became more stable I was able to stop. But, then came bulimia, which I don't understand because I'm so much happier than I was then.. This is my way of reaching out for help without showing my face because I'm sure I could never say these things to anyone in person.
