Okay ive got a problem and this is the first time im coming out and admitting to it. I use to take diet pills but i got them taken away from me by my boyfriend because they were making sick to the point where i almost had to go to the hospital. So instead of diet pills im just throwing up after i eat bad stuff and junk food. I just cant stand looking at myself ne more i cant stand looking at girls who are soo much skinnier and prettier it just makes me soo jealous and depressed.

Well latly my throats been hurting really bad so i havnt been doing it as much. Would my throat be hurting due to me throwing up all the time? Also im wondering what are other effects from bbilimia?? How can doctors tell that you throw up? I gues im realyl asking for some support and also what can throwing up ur food do to you?

Well one of that hardest parts is admitting to yourself that you have a problem, so atleast your on the right track.

From my understanding of bulimia it causes erosion of the teeth, chronic sore throat, kidney and liver problems (and it can cause problems with other major organs,) loss/irregular periods and bowel problems (constipation and diarahea.) And that isn't even going into the psychological effects it can cause.

I just did a quick search and came up with these. http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/Forum27/HTML/001031.html http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/Forum9/HTML/000382.html http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/Forum24/HTML/000222.html
(i don't know to link them up, so i guess you'll have to cut and paste)

Sorry I couldn't be of much help.

Youcancallmepunk, is spot on here. Bulimia is not only posing a danger b/c your body isn't getting the nutrients it needs to just be alive ... The acids that come up w/ the vomit eat the enamal on your teeth. Sticking your finger down your throat can do some serious damage to your esophogus.

You need to get help. Admitting you have a problem is a big step, but it really is moot if you're not willing to do something to help yourself. And any little thing you're willing to do to get better is great ... Maybe have someone sit w/ you for an hour or so after you eat. Let someone close to you in your life know what's going on. If they dont know the truth, they can't help you.
