What is Bulimia? People with bulimia eat by compulsively binging. This gorging is followed by self-induced vomiting and/or purging the body with water pills or laxatives. This compulsive illness continues to cycle in this destructive pattern until it consumes the bulimic's time and energy. Is this you?
This starts exactly by your description, and over time gets worse. In the long run you do not really loose any weight. But here is a list of what will happen.
Damage to your Teeth, throat, mouth and stomach. Tooth and stomach damage are not reversible. Your throat may heal eventually, but it will never be as it once was. All this damage, for little or no gain. Take it from someone who knows. It is not worth it. Seek help before you do untold damage to your body.
