Excessive water intake

Does anyone with an ED drink excessive amounts of water in order to react as a laxative or to make you sick.

I've started doing this recently then I told myself I wouldn't. My husband limits the amount of water he buys for me now but I've relapsed and started doing it again

Does anyone else have similar problems. I'm not anorexic I have a restrictive ED

Please help

Limiting the amount you buy is a good start - but suggest you need some ED counselling to look at the reasons for your need/thinking around the excessive water intake - especially if you've relapsed - a visit to your GP to discuss the situation might be the first step - or you could try ABC and discuss it confidentially with a support worker - they are really helpful.
