: : I am 18 years old. I used to be anorexic, but the need for food was too dramatic, and I began to be bulimic. What scares me about it is...I honestly don't want to stop. Because I know that if I do stop, I will gain weight. I want to look the same, but without starving, or benging and purging. But that's just not possible, so I do whatever is necessary. In a way I want to tell a friend, but then I know that I will have to try to stop. The last thing I want to do is get fat. I'm not too skinny right now, I'm 5'7" 123 lbs. And I don't seem to be getting any smaller, so I keep telling myself that what I'm doing is not dangerous. I need help, I need someone to talk to. I'm really scared and I don't know what to do.
: Lynn - Please read the message posted to Manny- friend in Need, by Lynn on 9/12. This comes from someone who had been there, done that and doesn't care to do it again. One thing I failed to mention in that summary was about the damage that your teeth also suffer. NO one even thinks about that. I have had about $10,000. worth of crowns from this disease. It takes a toll everywhere on you body. If you need to talk more, leave me a message. I have had 20 years of experience with Bulima - let me help you. Lynn
