Re: food allergies

I am in recovery from an eating disorder and I heavily abused laxatives on and off for about 6 years.

I know on your other post you said you didn't like to talk about it, but I have experienced this kind of bloating. It seems to be from the laxatives/diuretics.

Eliminating food etc.. is not going to solve the problem if you are still using the laxatives/diuretics.

There is no need to give up certain food and hold on to the hope that eliminating it will decrease the bloating. The food is not the problem.

Giving laxatives was the MOST difficult thing I have ever done! I was bloated for several weeks-maybe, longer and I had to wear baby-doll shirts. I looked like I was pregnant.

If you have been using them a long time, please go to your doc. so they can help you come off them correctly.
