I've struggled with bulimia for almost ten years. Most of my struggle has been secretive. My weight has fluctuated over the years to the tune of nearly 100 pounds. Bulimia for me has been like an ebb and flow. Sometimes it could last for months at a time and I feel like I have no control. I can't carry cash or a bank card b/c I spend hundreds of dollars a day on food. Then there are times when it seems like I have my bulimia under my thumb. I control what I eat and I work out mercilessly to the point that my roommate called my mom and begged her to do something because she was afraid for me. After having this go on for years my mother and I came to the decision that it was time for me to see someone. That happened today. One of the worst experiences of my life. The doctor I saw insinuated that I was being manipulative and said, "Nothing you've told me points to bulimia. You don't even stick your fingers down your throat. I think you should Google bulimia." He said that he thought I had a personality disorder. He came to this conclusion after talking to me for less than half an hour and he literally only asked one question about my bulimia. So my question is: am I bulimic or do I have a personality disorder? If so what personality disorder could I have?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
