My name is Katie, I am 30 years old and I have allowed Bulimia to be the most important, time-consuming, energy-sapping thing in my life for 12 years. I married the most wonderful, adoring, fun and loving man last year and I purged on the morning of my wedding. I believe that I have a conscious choice to make: to continue to give in to this horrible, demanding disease and live a half-life, or to commit to fighting it and eventually removing it from my life completely. For myself and for my husband, I choose the latter. I live in the United Arab Emirates (although I am still very much a Brit), and support options here are few and far between. I would be very grateful to anyone who is willing to help me through what I know will be a tough battle, and in return, I hope that you will allow me to help and support you in return.
This is the first step for me, I know there are many more to come and I commit to making those steps wholeheartedly.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
