A slave to bulimia for over 16 years

Hey everyone,

My names Courtney, Im new here. Bulimia has stolen my life for the past 16 years. Ive been in denial pretty much this entire time. I guess I knew in the back of my mind that eating obscene amounts of food and throwing up everything I ate was far from normal, but it was easier to just tell myself that it was okay, rather than admitting I had a problem. I made excuses for abdominal pain, mood swings, tooth aches, headaches, and sore throats. I truly convinced myself that my Bulimia was not responsible for these ailments that were only getting worse over time. I have recently reached a "rock bottom" so to speak, where was purging an average of 7-9 times per day. I could no longer deny my problem and decided it was time to take responsibility. Thats why Im here, hoping to recover and gain my life back!

Let every day be a brand new start!
