Does bloating affect any of you?
It happens all the time, but when i bloat, i instinctively think it's me who's put on weight, so i start to purge until my stomach is cramping and my throat burns.
And then i wont like eat anything else until the bloating has gone down. :/

How do you guys deal with it? is there anything i can take.
Because the bloating is helping less than ever with me trying to recover. :/

I hate the post-binge bloat.

I hate the post-binge bloat. From 2 years of binging, I've learned that TIME is the only thing that gets rid of it... sometimes I take laxatives, which I know is a bad idea, but at least it helps a little with my stomach size after a bad binge. Other than that, a few days symptom-free is about the only thing that helps. Unfortunately, I can't really maintain that... :(

yea, i hate bloating too. i

yea, i hate bloating too. i ALWAYS bloat after a purge and it sucks. u could try lasic (water pills) but i wouldnt take thise w/o asking a doc or atleast looking up as much info as possible on them. just like laxitives if u take too many it can really mess up your system.

you could try drinking a lot of water to help flush out ur body but that usually takes 2 long 4 me. if u get a good answer let me know!!

bloating, another reason not to b/p :)

three little birds sat on my window, and told me i don't need to worry...

acidophilus!!!!! It's all

acidophilus!!!!! It's all natural, but in pill form! It's the healthy probiotics in yogurt! It had helped me tremendously. My doctor told me my digestive system is a bit sluggish due to my bulimia, and this speeds things up. I don't b/p very often...maybe once a month, so I'm not sure if it would help if you're in a very active form of bulimia, but during recovery it's great!!
