Our expert says:
I am worried that you are not getting any assistance from professionals such as a clinical dietitian or a clinical psychologist who are trained to assist individuals suffering from an eating disorder like bulimia to cope. Your compulsion to eat and eat may well be due to your previous habit of purging and starving your body. Eating disorders disrupt your entire metabolism and I would recommend that you contact a dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). If you are in Gauteng then it may help to contact Tara Hospital as they have an Eating Disorder clinic (phone (011) 783-2010. In Cape Town and environs you can contact the Kenilworth Clinic (021) 797-1400 and in KwaZulu Natal there is Riverview Manor (033) 701-1911, or contact them on: www.riverviewmanor.co.za
Go for expert help ASAP so that you can beat the nightmare of bulimia without developing new problems.
