: My friend is bulemic. If anyone has advise on how to help her, please contact me!!!!
I am a recovering bulemic for 2 years now. I was bulemic for around 6 or 7 years. I am no medical doctor, but from experience I had everyone in my family concerned for me. My husband used to open the bathroom door trying to get me to stop. I finally started listening when the stomach aches were getting worse, and my dizziness was getting scary. My best advice is to you is to be there for your friend. Do some research about what the long term affects can do to her and talk to her about it. Most of the time, bulemia is a way to take control, now it's time for you to encourage her in taking control of her life. I'd also encourage you to try to get her to speak with a counceller or psyciatrist. I never did, but I wish I had a lot sooner.
Good Luck and God Bless,
