Mood swings can be a sign of bulimia
If somebody you suspect is bulimic suffers from big mood swings - this could be a sign of bulimia.
Bulimics are always on a knifes edge as they have so much going on in their heads... Sometimes even the smallest things will get them into a rage.
Bulimics will be thrown into a bad or defensive mood especially when questioned about food... Especially people saying how much they are eating and questioning them about it.
I remember when i was bulimic my dad commented on something I ate. In most households it would have gone unnoticed - but I flew into a rage, went to me room, slammed the door and threw my cellphone against the wall...
I reacted so badly because i was so ashamed of what i was doing. I didn't hate my dad - i hated myself and my bulimia habit.
Rage was definiely a sign of bulimia in my case...
Thank God that those days are behind me now.
