I first found the bulimia help method about a year ago, and I have made some improvements in my life and eating habits through structured eating and increasing my portions to the recommended amounts of calories. However, I feel that things have taken a turn for the worse lately.
As I have been going a bit back and forth on recovery throughout this past year I am definitely not blaming anything on the program; whenever I get back on track, I am relieved and feel better. But there is also a thought that crept into my mind just recently as I watched the new video tutorials: a point is being made that bulimia often begins with some sort of food restriction. Did mine? Indeed, but this restriction was not only a diet, it was full-blown anorexia. I was hospitalized for it, got a bit better and gained weight but kept restricting ever-so-slightly until this at some point turned into frequent bingeing and purging.
And so the thing is: I want to recover, and as I have already noticed improvement with the bulimia help method I want to go through with the program and be free. But at the same time I am also afraid that my anorexic background will somehow get in the way and that for me, my bulimia may be a physical/biological condition, but it is paired up with a psychological condition that makes this physical/biological approach to recovery less effective.
Is this a reasonable fear? Could anorexia, perhaps, also be categorized as physical/biologial the same way as bulimia, and hence there is nothing to worry about at all? Does anyone have any similar experiences?
