Dear Tired
Thank you for your kind words. I am well, but if you have been bulimic for more than 20 years, then you urgently need to get some professional assistance to help you conquer this Eating Disorder. Bulimia is an Eating Disorder, which needs to be treated with a team approach. Please consult a clinical psychologist (they are listed in the Yellow Pages under 'Psychologists' or you can ask your gp to refer you), to help you work out what underlying psychological problems are driving you to self-destruct and to learn most positive ways of dealing with these problems. You should also consult a clinical dietitian to assist you to get back to eating normally again. 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.
Go for expert help as soon as possible so that you can free yourself of this disorder.
