Hello all, and happy new year. As part of my (somewhat enormous) list of resolutions i pledged to register at a GP and finally confront my eating issues. As I've said in a previous post, I go through daily binge purge cycles, often being sick more than once in one day. I'm surprised that I haven't had more severe complications by now (this has been the case on and off since I was 21 but has worsened since I started to live alone) but my saliva glands have swollen and now I often have lumps around my jaw line. It sounds ridiculous but it's taken something this superficial to push me over the edge - I've been trying to stop for abut a year and each time, even when I eat a healthy stirfry, I lose control of the 'off button' and keep going. Never ending guilt! So, on tthe 25th I'm going to my new GP. Any advice on how to broach the subject? Hardly an ideal topic for a first appointment but if I don't grasp the nettle now i never will.
