Eating Disorder Stories
Here is my story I hope it will help people like me:
I have had the personal experience with living with the bulimia/anorexia.
I had this disorder for 3 years. The reason no one know about the anorexia is because I was like that in the summer of 97. I can tell you it won't go away on its own - it just causes you more emotional, social and psychological problems. I got the bulimia after my grandma died and at the time my family member was in Vista, a 3 month program.
No one knew I had the bulimia/anorexia. I was extremely good at hiding it from my friends and family. I got really lucky a lot of people lose their friends but I didn't, my friends stuck by me and helped me through it.
I have relapsed but that was a stupid mistake and I regret it. I did it three times then I stopped. I didn't want to go back into the web of lies and secrets. I also didn't want to lie to my parents again about why I was so thin.
I have two people to thank for my being able to be here today. They are Mike Shaw an ex-boyfriend of mine who was patient with me and told me to keep fighting and not to give up and Chrissy Sullivan who told my parents I was sick and probably saved my life. If it wasn't for those two people I might either be dead right now, close to it or in the hospital.
I will be lucky if I can have kids and If I do I will be lucky if they don't have a birth defect. I know weight 115lbs and I am happy with my weight and body shape. I will admit I am not always happy but who is happy about their weight all the time.
