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!
