Too scared to tell my parents about my bulimia

by Maryanne

Hi Everyone.

I've been living with this bulimia for over 1 1/2 years and it's killing me. Most of all i hate the fact that i have to lie to my parents. They have always been so good to me and done everything they could for my happiness and success. I hate the fact that if I tell them about my bulimia they will think they did something wrong. It's getting to the point thought that i doubt I can hide it from them for much longer. They will notice me running to the toilet after meals. I hate it but I feel compelled to do it. Almost like I am addicted to bulimia or something. It's so shameful!

i feel like a storm is brewing in my life (hence the picture) but I really want the sun to sneak it's head out soon. I need it to.

Does anyone have any advice on how to tell parents without making them feel guilty?? Has anyone been here where I am?

I feel alone :(

lotsa love
