10 years of everyday laxative abuse...

I need help.. so badly.
I became bulimic at age 12, then anorexic. It's been 7 years since ive been out of hospital

I need to get off the laxatives... Im about to lose my job because im so sick everyday... i have no energy, but im addicted to the empty feeling.. even tho it hurts so much.
But at night even if i have gone, im in so mucj pain (like now)
im so scared, do i go cold turkey or slowly reduce?
I want to take them so bad atm... i want to be skinny... but i want a life... is there a way out?

Hello gracewf

I believe it's time to see a gastroenterologist,to help pinpoint any possible abnormalities.
