I am bulimic and have been since i was 16 i am now 18 and its beginning to kick in the reality of it, my periods have stopped ( i am very small ) i went to my gp who took bloods ran tests etc and asked about my health such as could i be pregnant she then asked if i restrict my self of food or purge - which i do both, however i denied both questions as i was ashamed of what she might think. when i went back the second time once again she asked about the eating disorder all of which i once again denied although I'm not sure if she suspects anything or not . i have been getting better with purging not as often but I'm too ashamed to tell her and can't book another appointment as I've been twice now in one month and i can't bare the thought of telling her and what she may think of me i am very much ashamed of myself. also i couldnt bare my family know it'd be so embarrassing. i don't want the hellp because I'm so obsessed with what i eat and also i don't want to gain weight , please help my someone on what i should do.

Lately i have become sad about it all and its distracting me from more important things in life and Its constantly on my mind.

Firstly, do not feel ashamed! The sooner you open up about it to somebody you trust, the better you will feel. If you don't feel like seeing your GP, maybe call up a charity helpline? Google, 'Beat' and see what they can do for you. You are not alone! Talking on here is your first step forward! Take care x


Thanks I appreciate your feedback your right i feel so much better opening up to it on here! I'm not sure I'm ready to tell someone in person though


You might prefer calling a helpline? All calls are anonymous and they will do their best to help I'm sure.

I you really wish help, them you must be honest with yourself and with the GP.

You have to think about this: woman retain calcium just while they are fertile (with periods), so if you already stopped then you are in risk of be sick about osteoporosis early.
