I've read almost of these messages and really we're all the same. It seems we all want to be perfect. I've struggled with anorexia and now bulimia with laxatives, and I i am so scared I will die from this sickening disease. I'm 22, and at pretty normal weight for my age, but I binge eat about 4 times a week. It's all the same--binge/starve/binge/starve. I'll take about 15-30 laxatives during my binges.It seemes ridiculues. i've tried counselors and a couple friends, but i'm still stranded. I lie to my loved ones about my eating, sneak food and laxatives, and feel guilty and disgusting all the time. It is possible for us to all help eachother? i want to have a normal life and not think about food and fatness and weight and beauty all the time. I'm tired of being bombarded with tooth pick models, and perfect this and that... what does it take to stop this stupidity and waste of time behavior? please help!
