I must have been about 8 or 9 years old when I first started throwing up. I always knew my dad was bulimic. My mom used to tell me about it that he would throw up his food after he ate. I was really chubby around that age. One night, my aunt was in town on a business trip. There were tons of food platters in the hotel she was staying at. I binged and then I purged. I have never really eaten so much that I threw up automatically. I always make myself throw up. I am 21 now... Sometimes, I will be pretty good for a year. Since I was about 18, I have really calmed down. This past month has been really bad again. I am pretty much throwing up after almost every meal.
