Road to recovery...
This is my first story talking about my bulimia public. I have been bulimic for 5 years. I am 25 and I just recently went a whole week not b/p then relapsed but I have started the recovery process again and on day 3. It was not my weight as much at first as it was my addiction to food & then being able to relieve the discomfort of eating so much, however now it is more of an issue because I enjoyed the way I was looking. I b/p 6x a day (give or take). I got a credit card to pay for my ed. When I was living at home with my father I would vomit into tuba wear and hide them under my bed, we only had one bathroom and I didn't want him to hear me so I would get rid of it later when he wasn't home. Talk about being disgusted with yourself! It got as bad as the plumbing getting backed up.
Another very disturbing fact is that I am a Dental Assistant. I know how bad it is for your teeth and didn't stop! It used to not be as bad, only every once in a while, but the last couple years it has been completely out of control. I didn't even care to look for help! I finally can admit to myself I have a problem and I need help. I haven't gotten my teeth looked at in 3 years and it scares me so much to go to the Dentist.
At my work everyone was like the smallest girl loves food the most. Go figure- I am screaming for help! at first those comments where flattering now I find them revolting! I actually moved because I thought it would help me fight my bulimia to get away from it, I now know bulimia is the evil on your shoulder that never leaves! I am learning to fight him! I need to get my life back!
