Feeling sick in bulimia recovery


I am in my 4th week of recovery. I am proud to be here. I haven't been bloated as much as I've been nauseated. I'm not pregnant, I just feel sick in my stomach after I eat. Nothing tastes really good like before.

Is this to be expected?

Thanks, Jean

Hi Jean!

Oh, yes, I remember the nausea! It's not easy! It's all part of your tummy healing and getting used to storing and digesting food.

4 weeks is fantastic though - and I would really expect things to start improving for you soon. The first month or two are normally the most difficult!

Remember though - "Short term discomfort for long term gain"

Keep up your amazing work!
