i am a thirteen year old girl and for the past few weeks ive been binging and purging. ive always binged but never really noticed it until recently. as of maybe 2 weeks ago ive been trying to purge and was never successful until a few nights ago. i also try to starve myself (but it never works and i end up binging at the end of the day). everyone tells me im skinny but i dont believe them. im 5'4" and 104 pounds. LW100 HW110 ideal weight- 95. does anyone think im bulimic?

  • either that or anorexia, what many (including many doctors) dont realise is that some with anorexia will binge and purge too. You NEED to tell your parents or your school counsellor or a medical person about this NOW. This is serious and can get a lot more serious FAST and will get even harder to get better the longer you leave it. Now that you've succeded, you are at risk of this becoming a habit and soon a habit you will have no hope of stopping. This will damage your body and could lead to death.. even just Bulemia alone may lead to death.
