Hello, I'm struggling with bulimia and I want to overcome it. I just recently finally realised I'm actually bulimic. To just about a week ago I never really categorised myself to have a eating disorder. I was so scarred and ashamed to tell about this to my mum yesterday. I knew she struggled with the same condition for half of her life, and because of that I didn't want to burden her or upset her with my own problems. To be honest I actually wasn't planning of telling her yesterday at all, but out of nowhere I found an article about a girl struggling with the same problems as me and how she overcame her fears and decided to tell her parents. I was so encouraged by her words, that before I knew it I started typing to my mum that I want to speak to her about something important. I felt so relieved after calling her, like a weight was taken off my shoulders. I'm planning on telling about my problem to my dad this evening. I'm a little scarred but I think I can do it. I decided not to hide with my eating disorder any more and to start therapy to start living and enjoying life again. I know the journey will be tough and I won't get better on the next day but I want to try.
Whish me luck on my journey to recovery.
