    I think I probably have an eating disorder.
    It's not super severe,
    nothing like full-blown bulimia or anorexia,
    but I track my calories,
    and typically consume less than 800 calories a day,
    sometimes even as high as 1200,
    but if I do have more than 800, I throw it up.
    Sometimes I even throw it up if I haven't had more.
    The throw up doesn't happen everyday though.
    I've been losing weight, which was my goal,
    I've been exercising more too to lose it...
    I've also been taking dandelion root pills,
    which is a natural weight loss aid.
    It's really hard to admit this, but...
    I need help.
    I've tried to not throw up and eat right, but doing all this is addicting.
    I don't want it to develope into something bigger,
    but I'm afraid it might
    What should I do?

    Yeah, I guess I do need help...
    the other day I coughted up some blood and my throat was hurting,
    I think I broke a blood vessel or something.
    It's better now, since I managed to not throw up the past few days-
    even though I've mad eup for that by eating less than 500 calories a day.
