My name is Jackie

Hello...my name is Jackie.  I have been bulimic for 31 years. I find my health is faltering quickly now.  I am looking for encouragement to want to get better, to see a good life without and eating disorder.  I have only recently started studying the disease and realizing what control it has over my life.  Would love to hear from people who are recovering and have good advice.  People who are beating it and can share how much their lives have changed.

Hi...I'm also bulimic. I know about health failing...oh trust me on that one. My stomach is in daily hell. I recently had to have my appendix removed but they did warn me after the operation that the rest of my abdomen was inflamed, like they could see years of abuse. I purge everything I eat, or just about everything. Sometimes I keep stuff down. Not often.

I wish I could say I'm recovered...I know that's who you wanted to hear from...but I just know how it is so I wanted to give you my support just knowing where you're coming from. Hope you're okay today, and that you have a great week :)

And I feel like such a failure. In everything. Never good enough.

Yes I struggled with Bulimia for YEARS then flip flopped from ana/mia to recovery. I still purge occasionally, but since I live with my BF who works from home I have no privacy for that now...but I want to do it all the time since I got so fat this year living with him.

My health and tummy are much better and my skin is clear...but I am so fat I don't care! All I think about all day is losing weight or drinking or getting high to hide.

I guess i am not the best to hear from since I am still in such a state, sorry.

O BTW if you wanna meet more people your age like me (I am 37) check out this community for ED sufferers age 25 and up...all support no drama.

Hey, my name is Rachel and I can relate to you. I am 20 years old and have been struggling with anorexia since the 5th grade. I'm not bulimic, but I definitely understand what a weight obsession is like and a lot of the other factors that go into it. Best of luck, Jackie.
