Little girl - everything will be alright

by anni

I am 29 and suffer from bulimia since i am 18. Strangely enough, i wanted to have an eating disorder since i was 15. I didn't want to have bulimia though and would have much more preferred to be anorexic because i thought it is something to strive for. All the anorexic girls were beautiful and i thought their lives are perfect because they are skinny and get all the attention.

I was on the edge of being anorexic but turned it to bulimia after i was too scared about the way i was going down.

Since then i had three years of one on one therapy and the best thing therapy gave me was a feeling of self again. I could see something behind my outer appearance when i looked in the mirror.

But i never fully recovered and i am currently in a group therapy. I hate the bulimia most of the times and i feel an incredible sense of sadness when i think about my lost years and how sick i was.

I do consider myself in a quite good position now but i am terrified that i will never fully recover.

I know there is no easy fix but i wish i would know what the final steps are i need to do to fully recover...
