My chiropractor had my X rays analyzed today and he said OMG your small intestine looks so unusual, you must be badly constipated. I am not constipated but I knew right there that it's my old friend bulimia showing off. I do not consider myself severe bulimic, once I was even refused to participate in study because I wasn't bindging much enough or something like that. I was ashamed of bulumia most of my life. I went from obese girl at math school to 38 y.o. doing modeling and weighting XX pounds. There were so many times in my life I kept thinking why I am the way I am. Now at 43 I realize I just need to drop it, no matter what caused it. My biggest drive was reading Jane's Fonda book about her bulimia struggle. Ironically at 18 I was of the first girls in Russian doing aerobics at her college and thinking Jane Fonda is a symbol of female bodu beauty and health. Little did I know. But I am glad! Reading her story helped me to understand that bulumia is not about how "unperfect you are" . It is about "how unperfect you are in your own mind". I am 43 y o now. marriage never worked for me. I am the only provider for my 2 kids and my older father. I have 2 mortgages and 2 household bills to pay. I am no longer interested in meeting my solemate and looking slim and sexy enough for him :) I just need to stay healthy... As long as I can
