I Feel Like a Blowfish
I am eighteen years old and had been bulimic for little over six years.
I am two days into my bulimia recovery and I feel like a blowfish. Although I am quite proud of myself for only having made myself sick once in the past two days (as opposed to the usual fifteen or more times a day) my stomach is so distended that my skin is hurting from the stretching. I literally look eight months pregnant.
I would have simply given up had it not been for this website. Thank you, Shaye, for helping me realize that bloating is a normal part of bulimia recovery and that it will get better!
I find that Pepto Bismol helps a little with the bloating, and so does walking around.
