    What do you do to get out of it?

    I feel clueless, and I just want to keep it a secret, which I know is a bad sign.

    Depends, do you have anorexia or bulimia?

    I'm not eating and losing weight right now.

    To slow myself down, whenever I find myself hungry, I eat. My problem isn't so much that I have the internal voice of "you're fat, unworthy, etc" so I *don't* eat, I am literally *not hungry* a lot of the time. So when I notice that I'm hungry, I drop everything and eat whatever I'm craving.

    Bulimia is going to kill me. Wow. Feels strange to admit that, but I can't stop throwing up. Food is torture.

    I am afraid to tell my treatment team, because I have been in treatment for this stupid eating disorder for the past four years in and out of hospitals. Obviously it did not help.

    But, I dont know what will help. And I am afraid to disappoint everyone when they all think I am doing so much better. I am such a fraud.

    Yup, those F*ckers make it worse! I've had my bouts with bulimia while anorexic...it's such f*cking hard work and draining.....I'm surprised we are still alive......

    Yep, in 1990 when I was at the onset of the physical symptoms of anorexia (skinny but no ghoulish looking), I had what appeared to be a CNS attack and my sister called 911. I remember hearing her tell them that I have a history of anorexia and hadn't eaten in 2 wks...I heard the paramedic say "Well she's not really anorexic....." I remember feeling even fatter and from that day on it never stopped....likeyou said, gives you more strength and it's HELL HELL HELL.

    Now being skeletal, I get my way.....everyone stays away. Damned if you do damned if you don't....people are just f*cking insensitive, rude and judgmental.

    Are there any outpatient group programs that you could look into or a community pay as you go group session?

    * bug hugs * I knowhow lonely and hard this truly is.....and you are right, it can and it has killed many

    thanks for writing, everything you said I can relate to.

    My bulimia is really out of control, and I think I want it to be as much as I don't want it to be. Makes me feel like I can do something right, if nothing else. At the same time, I know it's not a solution to any of my problems. Maybe I dont care, maybe I am too chicken to kill myself swiftly, so this is just a more painful and long route...

    And I am really pissed that I reached out to the people that I trust and no one really cared. I guess that tells me a lot, I am just not worth it.
