Hi Tears,

When struggling with an eating disorder- you are normally so out of control that "meal plans" will definitely not help the situation. An eating disorder is a psychological issue and you will need to go for serious intensive therapy. I am not joking - you need some serious help - you are putting youre life in danger!!!!!!

I have seen young girls struggle with eating disorders - and that have nearly died because of this behaviour.

Get help now and disclose to someone that can help you - that you have a serious problem.

Please seek help, immediately

it would be very difficult -if not impossible-to fight this thing on your own. (I know) Go and see a docter on your own and tell her about your problem - its better to take pills for a few months than having to throw up all your food for the rest of your life. please go and see a docter, so that she can prescribe you something - its the only way.

I am in the exact same situation as you. I am also in my fourth year of bulimia...and I am in grade 12.
I don't know how to undo this habit either. I can not let my family know, because in the past they don't know how to handle the situation. I am only close with my mother. She does not understand at all and when she knew I was she was so dissapointed in me. So I have mastered the art of hiding it. I can not seek help because it will create too much pressure. I am trying to get over this myself...it's not working. I feel so ashamed and I am so scared of dying...I have bled a bit twice (my throught?) I found it so strange...everyone will tell me I am too thin and my mom will ask me if I vomited....and then later she tells me to pull my stomach in. It's so painfull. I don't know who to talk to or what to do either...its just comforting to know you have gone through the same situation.

I've also had bulimia 4 and it was a nigtmare. Go and see a docter so that she/he can prescribe you anti-deppresants like Nuzak. It really helps and it isnt so expensive - R250 for one month. Please go and see a docter, because you dont have to suffer like this.
Take care!

Maybe if you go IP again it will help?
Maybe this time you really WANT to recover?
It is difficult, but it will destroy you so you NEED to try getting help. How about therapy - or medication like prozac to help curb the binge in the first place??

It's a horrible situation to be in, but at least you know you ahve a problem and that you need the help.

Good Luck

You can beat this!
