HELP for bulimia

by Ilona
(New York)

I'm goign to college in a year. And I've been bulimic for about 3 and a half years. Im terrified! I want to stop but i feel like no one is helping me. I need advice on how to stop eating so much from someone thats not looking at me with judgment eyes like my mother and friends do! I really really want to stop just on my own...does anyone have any advice? Please help me!

Also, I have to go to the dentist soon, they say 'I dont brush my teeth' because they didn't know the real cause for why they were so messed up. Unfortunately, I told my mom I had stopped and that means that my teeth should have gotten better....unfortunately, I havent stopped and I'm terrified they got worse. I can tell my mom's embarrassed of me, and telling the Russian family doctor dentist that I'm bulimic will be mortifying for both of us... How long until my teeth start to heal if I stop purging? And any advice on how to stop?

I need someone who knows what this is like...who has been through it and suffered it themselves and there is no one like that around me. I am 4 feet 11 inches and I weigh around X pounds how much weight can I gain while I recover that will still keep me in a healthy range?

Technically I'm just scared I wont have the energy or motivation for the gym to keep fit if I stop... I guess that's why I'm so half scared of letting this illness go... But I have to stop soon... Because this is beginning to take my life..
