confused and worried... please help

Hi, so, im new to this forum and i really would like to get some advice from others who are also dealing with what i am goin thru. Only recently i have mentioned to my doctor that i throw up after i eat...i binge eat and then purge and then feel guilty and then be happy cuz i look skinnier...well my doctor says im overweight. I am 31 yrs old 5'3 and about 160lbs. I have been thru alot within the last year but i constantly struggle with thinking about what to eat and then think about the fastest way to get rid of it. I know i have a problem but i dont want to admit it.

I have lost 25 lbs since February but i want to lose 30 more...its crazy its my life thats all i think up ..binge...purge..its a constant battle.

I have been reading some articles on what happens to a person on the inside like physically the things that go on inside your body when you throw up after meals or even in my case after a frappe or a small snack. I know my bowels are all messed up because i cant go to the bathroom or when i do i explode (kinda gross). i get stoamch cramps all the time and my throat is forever hurting.

I cry all the time im so depressed and sad and cant sleep. I have a beautiful young son (11yrs old) but he lives with his father and thats another issue.

Please anyone with kind words, please reply. I cant talk to my husband because he doesnt understand.

Know that you are not alone in the struugle to conrol eating disorders.
I also suffer from bulimia and the binge-purge cycles can become a bit overwhelming at times.
People don't understand that it's not something one can just turn off,like a television or radio.

Did your doctor at least draw blood for further testing?
Have you considered seeing a personal therapist?
Sometimes it's good to just have a person whose concerned about your well-being and is dedicated to helping you achieve a better quality of living.

It's too early to say but have you considered the option of medication?

Just a thought.

If your stomach continues cramping and gets severe,please go to the nearest ER. Have you mentioned this to your doctor?

When in doubt, post it out.
