: I am 28 years old,married and a mom to a beautiful little girl who just turned 2. I have had a weight problem nearly all my life and have struggled with bulemia for years. The last severe bout left me with irreversible damage to my liver and kidneys. It left me anemic and hypoglycemic as well. I have optic atrophy in my eyes and can never wear contact lenses again. EVER. I have bad headaches every day. Chronic sinusitis. You name it and I have it. My doctor said it was my ED that caused it. Well....I have been binging and purging again for 2 months. I finally confided to my husband today that the reason I am always so tired and food is always missing is because I am battling this again. I know there is a way out and I can see light at the end of the tunnel but it is only a matter of getting there. One day at a time.
my heart goes out to you. I too had an eating disorder for a few years and suffered the isolation it caused. Help is available!!!! Counseling and friends to talk it over with helped me. The support was outstanding and I never thought it would be. I always thought it was my overindulgance that caused me to binge nad purge. But it was lonliness. I found the core of my problem and fixed it. It has now been 4 years without bulemia. Life is good...and it can be for you too. Please seek help. Life can be wonderful if you let it in. My best wishes on your recovery
